Making the Case for Grant Funding: Using Social Justice to Practice Creating and Analyzing Regression for Secondary Mathematics

Melissa Hinchman, Math, West Charlotte High

Curriculum Unit (PDF)


NC Math II or NC Math III students will learn how to create a regression equation, describe the key features of the created function, and analyze regression based off the contexts of their data to explain the history of the data, the current trends, and to make predictions. While students are learning math, students will be engaged in social justice research, reflection, and personal connection with the intent to empower students to feel seen within the curriculum, grow in race-related identity, and have a solution-orientated mindset. This unit should help teachers have viable curriculum that is relevant, anti-racist, and student-centered application of course standards.
