Ryan, Laura E.; Dietiker, Leslie – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018
One way to recognize how mathematical lessons can be stimulating for children is to interpret them as stories. If mathematical lessons follow a structure similar to that of a story, they can build anticipation, create surprise, and even generate intrigue (Egan 1988). To support the design of mathematical lessons with these types of aesthetic…

Dietiker, Leslie; Richman, Andrew S.; Brakoniecki, Aaron; Miller, Elyssa R. – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2016
Efforts to enhance the aesthetic impact of mathematics lessons must account for the role of teachers in shaping the unfolding mathematical content of their enacted lessons. In this paper, we draw from Dietiker (2015) to describe differences in the mathematical stories of the enacted lessons of two veteran teachers teaching the same lesson. We…

Dietiker, Leslie – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2015
This paper proposes a theoretical framework for interpreting┬áthe content found in mathematics curriculum in order to offer teachers and other mathematics educators comprehensive conceptual tools with which to make curricular decisions. More specifically, it describes a metaphor of "mathematics curriculum as story" and defines and…

Dietiker, Leslie – Journal of Education, 2015
Elliot Eisner proposed that educational challenges can be met by applying an artful lens. This article draws from Eisner's proposal to consider the assumptions, values, and vision of mathematics education by theorizing mathematics curriculum as an art form. By conceptualizing mathematics curriculum (both in written and enacted forms) as stories…
