Возвращаюсь к упомянутой брошюре «The pathway to equitable math instruction» из предыдущего поста. Не могу пройти мимо этого:

White supremacy culture shows up in math classrooms when...

“Real-world math” is valued over math in the real world.

Often the emphasis is placed on learning math in the “real world,” 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.
