The class, called “A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction,” is described as “an integrated approach to mathematics that centers Black, Latinx, and Multilingual students” that offers “opportunities for ongoing self-reflection as they seek to develop an anti-racist math practice.”

“White supremacy culture infiltrates math classrooms in everyday teacher actions,” the guide states. “Coupled with the beliefs that underlie these actions, they perpetuate educational harm on Black, Latinx, and multilingual students, denying them full access to the world of mathematics.”

First outlined by Campus Reform,  the“white supremacy culture” cited by the document focuses on “getting the ‘right’ answer” and demanding that students show their work.

Campus Reform says authors of the program detail that “The concept of mathematics being purely objective is unequivocally false, and teaching it is even much less so. Upholding the idea that there are always right and wrong answers perpetuate objectivity as well as fear of open conflict.”

The new program leads teachers to “Choose problems that have complex, competing, or multiple answers” so that their students can offer “at least two answers” in order to “challenge standardized test questions…”

“Often the emphasis is placed on learning math in the ‘real world,’” the program guide says, “as if our classrooms are not a part of the real world. This reinforces notions of either/or thinking because math is only seen as useful when it is in a particular context. However, this can result in using mathematics to uphold capitalist and imperialist ways of being and understandings of the world.”
