Collab Lab 27: See Math Everywhere

Thursday April 11 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

What if Milwaukee students stopped thinking of math as something “I’m not good at” and saw it instead as something much richer?

  • a creative endeavor
  • a way to explore issues they care about
  • a way to see their neighborhood, city, and world from a whole new perspective
  • a place where their interests can drive mastery

What if Milwaukee students started thinking of themselves as mathematicians?

What if Milwaukee students could see math:

  • walking down the street;
  • in the laundromat;
  • in the way games play out at the park, at home, at the stadium;
  • in the design of buildings, neighborhoods, and cities;
  • in the way culture and economics shape their life;
  • in art and music and poetry and dance?

What if Milwaukee students could see math everywhere?

What if Milwaukee came together in 2020 to make this happen?

2020 Vision: See Math Everywhere

Join colleagues from public, private, and charter schools from across greater Milwaukee as well as a bunch of folks from outside of K-12 to explore what this could look like and how we move it forward together.
