SUMMARY:Disability Equity in Mathematics Education: Accessibility, Re-mediation, and CompensationAbstract
DESCRIPTION:Speaker\: Katie Lewis, University of Washington\r\nEquity in mathematics education research has only recently begun to consider students with disabilities. In this talk, I focus specifically on students with mathematics disabilities – students who have a neurological difference in how their brains process numerical information. Prior research on mathematics disabilities (i.e., dyscalculia) has predominantly taken up a deficit frame, documenting the ways in which students with dyscalculia are deficient in terms of speed and accuracy. In my work, I argue that this deficit orientation is problematic, and I offer an alternative. I take up an explicitly anti-deficit framing and draw upon sociocultural learning theories and Disability Studies to orient my work. In this talk I use multiple case studies to explore ideas about accessibility, re-mediation, and compensation across a range of mathematical topics. This anti-deficit work provides an alternative vantage point to understand disability in mathematics education and suggests avenues to work towards equity. I close by considering ways that mathematics education equity research can be in service of and in partnership with the populations that we study.

SUMMARY:Building Racial Justice in Mathematics Education: A Seat at the Breakfast Table
DESCRIPTION:Speaker\: Nicole Louie, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Chundou, University of Wisconsin-Madison\r\nEveryone seems to be talking about racial equity and justice these days. Increasingly, scholars in mathematics education are recognizing the need to center the voices of those most affected—i.e., Black, Latine, Asian, and Indigenous children and families—in these discussions. Our current project explores participatory design research (PDR) as a tool for building school, university, student, and parent capacity for centering children of color and their families as researchers and designers of middle school mathematics learning, in a small but diverse Midwestern city. In this talk, we will discuss the challenges we are experiencing and what we are learning about PDR, racial justice, and ourselves, as we work to bring youth of color to the table with us to eat, learn, and act together.

SUMMARY:Journey to “Anti-deficit Narratives”
DESCRIPTION:Speaker\: Aditya "Adi" Adiredja, University of Arizona\r\nThis talk will be a combination of a meta discussion about how I developed my research program and the main contributions of some of my projects. Specifically, I will share my journey to find a research program that simultaneously engages both equity and cognitive research. I will discuss connections between my work and Funds of Knowledge, as well as other anthropology-informed work, like Ethnomathematics and studies of the mathematics of Indigenous communities. I will share how one of my current projects with Marta Civil, Project AdeLanTe, implements the principles of anti-deficit learning\r\nand teaching, while also building on principles from Funds of Knowledge and Culturally Relevant Pedagogy.
