Woke Math Word Problems

by John Hirschmann

From: California Schools RRR Project
To: All Public School Teachers Grades 11-12
Level of Attention: Urgent
Date of Proposed Implementation: Immediate

In response to the need for more equitable, diverse, and inclusive math in California schools, the California Schools RRR (Reimagining, Resist, and Reparations) Project has released a few new math word problems. These new math word problems should now be considered the gold standards for formulating such problems for grades 11-12. They represent a critical distancing from traditional math, which, up until this moment, has been rife with “white supremacist” assumptions, ever since the founding of “America” in 1619. 

Note: State Funding beginning in Fall, 2021, will be contingent upon full adoption of these new principles of math learning.
