Math at Tucson Unified - Bridging Gaps

Multicultural adaptations to math instruction have helped to bridge gaps which may exist between students' cultural backgrounds and the academic content. Math curriculum:

  1. Incorporates the math contributions of people from multiple cultural backgrounds, such as Arabic and Mayan contributions to numbers.
  2. Uses experiential activities.
  3. Emphasize the real-world applications and benefits of the lesson content.
  4. Creates an enthusiastic environment where students have positive experiences with math and science.
  5. Understands an individual bias about who is or is not able to comprehend math and science, and provide opportunities to all learners.
