I cannot recall having oppression as it relates to learning mathematics, I just had a bad teacher. She would explain something one time and then give us a work sheet so she was not much help. I was lucky enough other teachers in the school who were lots of help. On another note, I found our guest lectures argument interesting. When she spoke about Inuit students and how successful them were in their own language and numbering system it makes you think of how many systems out there aren’t really a fair way to asses intelligence. Because clearly these kids were not dumb, just not great at English based math. I would like to know more about this situation and also learn more about the standardized base line tests that schools give out and look at how good of an indicator they really are.
