In this interactive, explore data presented in a series of graphs to evaluate whether we are any closer to having an equitable society than we were in 1963, the year of the historic March on Washington. In the accompanying classroom activity, students use the mathematical idea of rate of change to examine the economic, education, and social data in the interactive to determine whether we are any closer to equality in America than we were 50 years ago or whether equality remains a dream deferred. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
