Societal inequalities pose some of the biggest and most intractable challenges facing our nation today. Mathematician Karen Saxe shows how mathematical concepts help us understand and analyze inequality.
Karen Saxe is currently Director of the DC office of the American Mathematical Society, is on the board of the “Transforming Post-Secondary Education in Mathematics” initiative, and is the DeWitt Wallace Professor in the Mathematics, Statistics & Computer Science Department at Macalester College.
