This is really cool http://www.radicalmath.org/
I'm going to definitely use this resource. Anything to make math relate to people and people to relate to math.
The ideas and philosophy of radical math come from Bob Moses who happens to be Hamilton College class of 1952 or something. He was one of the very first African Americans to graduate from Hamilton and he has made a huge impact in the world of education and multiculturalism and social justice and power through public education.
Here's a great Bob Moses quote that the Radical Math folk have on their site.
"The most urgent social issue affecting poor people and people of color is economic access... [and that] depends crucially on math and science literacy."
- Bob Moses
Isn't that the truth?
