We talk about the math achievement gap, but what about the math experience gap? In this session we explore how to mathematize any activity, from playing games to everyday tasks, so that we can give students rich math experiences that prepare them for deep problem solving. These activities show students that math is exciting and can help them make sense of the world. Session participants will take home examples of mathematized activities.
