Workshop Title: Mural Mathematics

Time: 6:30 - 8:00pm, EST (via Zoom)
Presenters: Angela Boratko, Hartford Public Schools; Sacha Kelly, CREC; Caroline Psutka, Manchester Public Schools
Description: Throughout Connecticut, murals and other art installations have increased the visibility of social justice issues. For example, in Hartford, Bloomfield, and Windsor there have been Black Lives Matter murals created by community artists and activists. Join us to experience the crucial yet easy to overlook mathematics behind these murals. This is an opportunity for you to consider: "What social justice issue would you stand up for?" Participants will experience some of the elements of this student project including Google mapping tools for measurement, exploring circle properties, and drafting a social justice mural design. We will also share all components of the project, including extensions to take action in your own community.
