This presentation by Marta Civil centers the idea of diversity as a resource for mathematics teaching and learning. The focus is on how to build on the diversity present in our classrooms (in particular, language and cultural diversity) to enhance the mathematics learning opportunities for all of us (teachers, students, and parents). I will discuss the concept of valorization of knowledge and how that may affect how we interact with diversity in the classroom.
