Digital Tools to Support Critical Pedagogy of Place in Mathematics

Laurie Rubel

This exhibit will share digital tools from the Learning Mathematics of the City in the City Project (funded by DRK-12). City Digits: Cash City was created by an interdisciplinary collaboration between CUNY and MIT’s Civic Data Design Lab. The digital tools support data-rich and interactive geospatial investigations of pawn shops and other alternative financial institutions across New York City. The digital tools enable students to publish digital, multimedia storyboards of their analysis. Visitors will be able to explore the tools, view student work, and talk with members of the research team about next steps.
