The culture in which a student lives impacts the way they learn. It is important for mathematics teachers to be knowledgeable about students and their cultures to properly engage them in learning. Every classroom has a diverse set of learners that can benefit from the proper implementation of Culturally Responsive Pedagogy (CRP). Instructional tools that can develop and support CRP are Inquiry Based Learning, Authentic Questions, Modeling, and Hands-on Activities. This curriculum project presents these instructional tools designed around a 7th grade Integers unit to engage learners and develop a deeper understanding of the concepts.
