“The nation’s population of minority students has surged to 42 percent of public school enrollment, up from 22 percent three decades ago” (Dillon, 2007) Approximately 15% of U.S. students are Latina/ Latino, and 40% of those were born out of the U.S. We treat these students as blank slates ignoring potential contributions they may be able to contribute to our mathematics classroom. Due to the increase of minority students, we as teachers need to incorporate relatable aspects of students daily lives into our curriculum.
