Activity Winner: Culturally Responsive Teaching of Probability: Toma Todo and La Lotería

Larry Lesser (University of Texas at El Paso)


There is much literature and curriculum on "ethnomathematics" and "culturally relevant mathematics", but very little in statistics. This probability lesson attempts to address this as a way to support diversity, equity, and inclusion for all learners -- especially our Latinx/Hispanic students who have been underserved but who are making up an increasing fraction of the population in modern educational settings.
