This paper explores the potential of integrating critical and place-based perspectives supportedby mobile, digital technologies in secondary mathematics. The paper describes two curricular modules: Local Lotto, a mathematical investigation of the state lottery, and Cash City, a mathematical investigation about pawn shops, which were piloted in a high school in an underserved neighborhood in New York City. The analysis focuses on texts, tools, and talk (Philip & Garcia, 2013) introduced by a critical pedagogy of place in mathematics.
