Mathematics Education in a Time of Earthquakes: Holding on and Letting Go
McChesney, Jane; Wilson, Susanna
For the Learning of Mathematics, v36 n2 p14-18 2016
Two mathematics teacher educators describe their responses during a year disrupted by a serious earthquake and the ongoing effects on students and staff. We discuss our pedagogical responses to unforeseen changes in courses and in students' lives, including the re-calibrating of social relationships. We describe our work in a postgraduate course for teachers and our responses to their new priorities, drawing links to the notion of a "praxis of living" and the role of mathematics education as a sustaining resource in disrupted times.
