PART 1. Pop-culture and media in Mathematics.
Students’ perception of mathematicians or math people.
Complicated, anti-social, unattractive, clever, hairy, male with glasses…etc
“Being a classic math teacher. ” by Kunchock and Cassius
“When you study math…” by Tabina, Kayla, Stephanie, Genesis, Tabina
“TRCS Mathematicians” By Gabriel N, Angelo, Andrew and Luc
2. How does negative stereotype of mathematicians influence our learning?
3. Why do we need people who must study in math? Think about the bigger picture.
We need mathematicians to be pushing at the edge of research to solve some of the problems that the human race is facing.
We need people who must study mathematics to solve problems such as extreme weather, natural disasters, the population, monitoring pollution, climate change…etc
4. Campaign for TRCS Students to love mathematics.
Math Campaign by Angelo, Andrew, Gabriel N and Luc.
Math Campaign by Genesis and Stephanie “Math is all around us: Geometric shapes!”
*PLAY the video!*
5. Mathematics is everywhere! Where can we find mathematics? Everywhere in NYC!!!
