Current and Prospective Families
Are Welcome to Join Us!
The Social Justice Data Fair has been held at the Linden School for the past several years. It is an opportunity for our math students to use data management skills to study issues they’re concerned about. The fair is an example of how our independent, girl-centered school for students in Grades JK to 12 tries to include topics of social justice in our curriculum. Compared with other Toronto-area private schools, our school is quite culturally diverse, and we enroll students from many nontraditional families. Most of our families support learning math through the lens of social justice. (Parents have commented how much they enjoy having their daughters bring math class conversations to the dinner table.)
Please feel free to drop in and learn how our girls are using math to help make the world a better place!
Can't make the Fair but are interested in learning more about it? We will be publishing pictures and project descriptions on the website. In the meantime, learn more by reading an article by Linden faculty Beth Alexander and Michelle Munk "A Social Justice Data Fair: Questioning the World Through Math" and reading our post about last year's fair.
