Warshauer, Hiroko Kawaguchi – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2015
Prior studies suggest that struggling to make sense of mathematics is a necessary component of learning mathematics with understanding. Little research exists, however, on what the struggles look like for middle school students and how they can be productive. This exploratory case study, which used episodes as units of analysis, examined 186…

Brown, Raymond – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2009
Teaching for social justice in the mathematics classroom requires discernment between what "should" be done to ensure accountability to the practices of the discipline and what "could" be done to promote awareness of how those practices may be used to afford equity and access within the classroom. One approach to teaching and learning that may be…
