Aikenhead, Glen S. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2021
Informed by a cultural understanding of human sense-making, the mathematical identities of Grades 7-12 learners, teachers, and conventional curricula are explored. Due to a clash of values between mathematics and the humanities, a majority of learners do not achieve their mathematical potential. This frustrates both these learners and their…

Lin, Xin; Peng, Peng; Zeng, Jiangang – Elementary School Journal, 2021
In this meta-analysis of 40 studies with 55 independent samples and 7,988 participants, we examined the relation between mathematics vocabulary (MV) and mathematics performance, and we investigated the mechanism underlying this relation. Our findings suggest that MV was moderately related to mathematics performance. Higher-order mathematics tasks…

Thanheiser, Eva; Sugimoto, Amanda – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2020
There are long-standing and ongoing calls for making mathematics meaningful, relevant, and applicable outside the classroom. In other words, to help students see mathematics as a tool for understanding, analyzing, and changing the world. However, there are also tensions between a focus on classical mathematics goals and a focus on analyzing and…

Zahner, William; Calleros, Ernesto Daniel; Pelaez, Kevin – ZDM: Mathematics Education, 2021
Emerging multilingual students can develop the dimensions of Academic Literacy in Mathematics (ALM) in classroom discussions. But, there is a need for empirically-validated principles for fostering such discussions. This research used ALM as a framework to create a unit of instruction on linear rates of change for ninth grade mathematics in which…
