# Let math spark connection

## What if every child could experience joy in math?

## Developing the path forward together

Culturally responsive instruction and inclusive classrooms are pivotal to a student’s learning experience. Through professional development sessions and co-learning, math fellows examine their instructional practice and incorporate learnings into their lessons to foster math moments that value student identity and highlight ways that mathematics is used to explore the world.

- Key actions that support ambitious teaching
- Classroom strategies that support student mathematical identity and agency
- Real-time adjustments to in-classroom strategies and instruction based on feedback from district math coaches

## What is ambitious, equitable math instruction?

We asked math fellows to brainstorm what ambitious equitable math instruction looks like to them, how it manifests in the classroom, and potential emerging strategies that they might want to explore. This list is their brainstorm. **Download the 2021-2022 cohort’s complete brainstorm** to see a snapshot of their thoughts to kick off their learning in the fellowship program.
