Kurz, Terri L.; Gómez, Conrado; Jimenez-Silva, Margarita – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2017
In this article, the authors present a framework for guiding elementary preservice teachers in adapting mathematics word problems to better meet English language learners' (ELLs) needs. They analyze preservice teachers' ELL adaptations implemented in a one-on-one setting. Through qualitative methods, four themes regarding implemented adaptations…

Andersson, Annica; le Roux, Kate – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2017
In this article, the authors propose a set of multi-level questions as a guide for developing an ethical attitude in researcher--participant and researcher--researcher relations during the research writing process. Drawing on the sociopolitical turn in mathematics education, the authors view these relations in terms of power and positionings, in…

Povey, Hilary; Adams, Gill; Everley, Rosie – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2017
In England, globalisation and neoliberal political agendas have created an environment in which teachers are constantly measured and ranked and subjected to a discourse of marketisation, managerialism, and performativity. This measuring, ranking, and subjection is particularly strongly felt in urban schools, where a discourse that recognised the…

Rubel, Laurie H. – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2017
In this article, the author synthesizes four equity-directed instructional practices: standards-based mathematics instruction, complex instruction, culturally relevant pedagogy (CRP), and teaching mathematics for social justice (TMfSJ). The author organizes these practices according to the dominant and critical axes in Gutiérrez's (2007a) equity…

Gutiérrez, Rochelle – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2017
When the pedagogy or scholarship involves challenging the status quo, the author argues, especially on behalf of students of color, there tends to an extreme backlash to silence it in recent years. She recalls her experience and provides examples of other academic challenges. However in this commentary, she argues that mathematics was late to the…

Tan, Paulo; Kastberg, Signe – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2017
In this commentary, the authors find that despite discussions of "mathematics for all," opportunities that support the development of mathematical reasoning and understanding of mathematics as a human endeavor often do not exist for mathematics learners identified in schools as having dis/abilities. Indeed, mathematics for all is…

Nickels, Megan – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2017
Adolescents and youth represent a substantial number of individuals living with HIV/AIDS (hereinafter HIV) in the United States. Infected youth and young adults aged 13-29 (n = 100,724) made up 10% of all U.S. individuals living with HIV at the end of 2014 (Center for Disease Control [CDC], 2016). This same age group comprises 42% of all new HIV…

Timmons-Brown, Stephanie; Warner, Catharine – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2016
In this article, the authors explore using a conference workshop setting to engage mathematics teachers, who serve largely underserved student populations, in culturally relevant pedagogy (CRP). The conference workshop encouraged the exchange of information among teachers of similar grade levels and classroom contexts. The authors' analysis of the…

Turner, Erin E.; Foote, Mary Q.; Stoehr, Kathleen Jablon; McDuffie, Amy Roth; Aguirre, Julia Maria; Bartell, Tonya Gau; Drake, Corey – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2016
In this article, the authors explore prospective elementary teachers' engagement with and reflection on activities they conducted to learn about a single child from their practicum classroom. Through these activities, prospective teachers learned about their child's mathematical thinking and the interests, competencies, and resources she or he…

Young, Jamaal Rashad; Young, Jemimah Lea – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2016
In this article, the authors provide a single group summary using the Mathematics Anxiety Rating Scale (MARS) to characterize and delineate the measurement of mathematics anxiety (MA) reported among Black students. Two research questions are explored: (a) What are the characteristics of studies administering the MARS and its derivatives to…

Yanisko, Emily Joy – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2016
In this article, the author reports on a participant-observation case study that explored how alternatively certified, middle school teachers' expectations of tracked students affect their ability to learn to teach in ways that promote students' mathematical struggle and participation in productive mathematical discussions. Two teachers--one…

Battey, Dan; Leyva, Luis A. – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2016
In this article, the authors provide a framework for understanding whiteness in mathematics education. While whiteness is receiving more attention in the broader education literature, only a handful of scholars address whiteness in mathematics education in any form. This lack of attention to whiteness leaves it invisible and neutral in documenting…
