Flags of Latin America: Culturally Relevant Learning Experiences With Technology to Enhance Geometry and Algebra Concepts


  • Kelly Wamser Remijan


This article highlights flags from various Latin American countries as a springboard for implementing culturally relevant learning experiences within the mathematics curriculum. It provides middle school and high school math teachers, as well as college instructors, with examples of learning experiences to engage students in culturally relevant activities. These activities build a connection between geometry and algebra concepts while at the same time extending the knowledge of technology tools such as Google Sheets Pixel Art, Computer Numerical Control Machines, GeoGebra, and Desmos. Finally, discussing flags encourages dialog about different cultures and enhances global awareness and cultural competence.
