Catalyst Award

Project Description

Authentic Math Problems and Solutions’ platform will offer culturally relevant math problems that encourage students to collaborate with peers, iterate on their answers, and use multiple approaches to find one of many potential solutions. This is different from many existing platforms, which emphasize students independently and quickly finding a single solution to a contextless problem, like finding the hypotenuse of a triangle. With this shift in approach, this platform can better engage students from marginalized groups, starting with middle school students.
