O'Brien, Kate C. – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
Pairing the mid-century work of Ada Dietz (1882-ca. 1970) with two compelling contemporary projects from Sonya Clark (1967- ), this article considers the ways in which normative mathematical ideas are remade through their engagement with weaving practice. Highlighting recent efforts to further ethnomathematics' original decolonial intentions, I…

Ruef, Jennifer L.; Jacob, Michelle M. – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
As members of a research group taking initial steps for creating mathematics curriculum in an Indigenous language (Yakama Ichishkíin), we engaged with an unanticipated outcome: the ways Indigenous identities and homelands are fractionated, as part of ongoing colonizing harm. Our work centers on how mathematics instruction can help heal, by…

Helme, Rachel – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
Students who are labelled as low attaining in mathematics are often seen as a homogeneous group and as such can be assigned learning attributes by others that observe their identity work in the classroom. Rachel Helme argues that by giving attention to an otherwise marginalised voice, it may be possible to challenge the discourse of deficiency,…

Carotenuto, Gemma; Mellone, Maria; Spadea, Marina – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
How might a 4-year-old pupil come to conceive a line, created by himself with a continuous gesture, as constituted by a series of points? In this paper, we theoretically introduce and discuss a design study of the educational path in which this possibility emerged. The path aimed at leading pupils to "experience," in the sense of the…

Sinclair, Nathalie; Ferrara, Francesca – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
In this article, we explore Whitehead's claim that experience is fundamentally affective. We do so in the context of an Italian primary school classroom featuring the use of the multitouch application "TouchCounts." We study the way in which the children and the iPad take each other up and the meanings of number and arithmetic that…

Ryan, Ulrika; Källberg, Petra Svensson; Boistrup, Lisa Björklund – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
In this, paper we attend to epistemological potentials of multilingual language use and mathematics in connection to the 'language-as-resource' idea and how the idea is actualised in Swedish mathematics education contexts. In this paper we develop and propose a framework for considering different epistemological potentials for multilingual…

Marco, Nadav; Palatnik, Alik; Schwarz, Baruch B. – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
This paper highlights the pedagogical importance of gaps in mathematical proofs to foster students' learning of proofs. We use the notion of 'gap-filling' (Perry & Sternberg, 1986) from literary theory to analyze a task based on a Proof Without Words, which epitomizes the notion of gaps. We demonstrate how students fill in gaps in this…

Lai, Yvonne; Baldinger, Erin E. – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
In this paper, we propose a potential interactional explanation of tertiary-to-secondary (dis)continuity: that of authority relations. Using secondary mathematics teachers' proof validations across two contexts, we suggest that secondary teachers' conceptions of authority shape their capacity to reconcile their positions as former mathematics…

Rumbelow, Michael – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
"Where Mathematics Comes From" (Lakoff & Núñez 2000) proposed that mathematical concepts such as arithmetic and counting are constructed cognitively from embodied metaphors of actions on physical objects, and four actions, or 'grounding metaphors' in particular: collecting, stepping, constructing and measuring. This article argues…

Miller, Jodie; Hunter, Jodie – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
Within mathematics education, issues relating to equity and inclusion of diverse voices is receiving increasing attention. We argue that broadening the perspectives of the wider research community can only be achieved by providing opportunities for the stories of marginalised communities to be shared. In this article, we draw on our experiences,…

Albano, Giovannina; Coppola, Cristina; Iacono, Umberto Dello – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
How can a student experience what happens in the mind of a mathematician while solving a problem? In this paper we discuss a theoretical design of an educational script, based on digital interactive storytelling. Parallel to Docter's 'Inside Out', the cognitive functions occurring in problem solving become characters of a story-problem. Students…

Cook, John Paul; Dawkins, Paul; Reed, Zackery – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
In this paper we analyze common solutions that students often produce to isomorphic tasks involving proportional situations. We highlight some key distinctions across the tasks and between the different equations students write within each task to help elaborate the different interpretations of equivalence at play: numerical, transformational, and…

Leikin, Roza; Ovodenko, Regina – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
Advancement of self-regulation during complex problem solving and the development of strategical reasoning are among the central educational goals linked to 21st century skills. In this paper we introduce the notion of "Stepped Tasks", which are specially designed in Top-Down structure to achieve these goals in mathematics instruction.…

Rowland, Tim – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
This article is a celebration of the pleasure inherent in the teaching of mathematics, with a particular focus on a university undergraduate context, and a taught course in the Theory of Numbers. The paper describes a conscious effort by one lecturer to respect the 'genetic sequence', whereby students are encouraged and enabled to investigate the…

Lunney Borden, Lisa; Throop-Robinson, Evan; Carter, Ellen; Prosper, Suzanna – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2021
Building from the concept of verbing mathematics as a culturally consistent and enabling mathematics education practice for Mi'kmaw learners, the authors present an elementary multiplication lesson affectionately named "Sets of, Rows of, Jumps of". Through examination of this specific set of tasks emerging notions of structuring, play,…
