Leonard, Jacqueline; Evans, Brian R. – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2018
Learning mathematics in urban settings is often routine and decontextualized rather than inquiry- and culturally based. Changing prospective teachers' attitudes about pedagogy in order to change this pattern is often tenuous. The purpose of this pilot study was to provide opportunities for teacher interns enrolled in a graduate certification…

Valero, Paola – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2018
The title of my contribution to this special 10th year anniversary issue contains the terms "human capitals"--and there is not a spelling mistake--"school mathematics," "making," and "homus oeconomicus." Apparently, the terms do not say much about mathematics and its learning and teaching, but more about the…

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…
