Downing, Gregory A.; McCoy, Whitney N. – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2021
In collegiate mathematics, college algebra continues to be a barrier to graduation for students (specifically non-science, mathematics, engineering, and science majors). Each year, nearly half of enrolled students struggle to "pass" this course with a grade of C or better (Herriott, 2006). Using innovative constructed lessons geared…

Yeh, Cathery; Martinez, Ricardo; Rezvi, Sarah; Shirude, Shraddha – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2021
Ethnic studies is a growing movement for curricular and pedagogical practices that reclaim marginalized voices and histories and create spaces of healing for students of color; however, its application to mathematics education has been limited. In this essay, we provide a framework of five ethea of ethnic studies for mathematics education:…

Cunningham, Jahneille A. – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2021
Black parents are often presumed to be uninvolved in their children's education, especially in mathematics. These stereotypes are arguably sustained by White, middle-class expectations for parent engagement. This qualitative study challenges the dominant narrative by exploring the ways eight Black parents support their elementary-aged children's…

Tweed, Brian – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2021
In this article, the learning of conventional curriculum mathematics in one Indigenous Maori school in Aotearoa/New Zealand is conceptualized as a site of ontological struggle. The major finding of a research project which analyzed extensive ethnographic data gathered in partnership with this school identified an ontological disjunction between…

DiNapoli, Joseph; Morales, Hector, Jr. – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2021
Recent reform efforts state the importance of providing students with opportunities to persevere with challenging mathematics to make meaning. We posit translanguaging practice as a vital option by which Latinx bilingual students can sustain collective perseverance during problem solving. In this paper, we employ a constant-comparative overlay…

Dubbs, Christopher H. – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2021
The purpose of this paper is to introduce citation networks, a novel method for identifying field connections, and to elaborate a theory of spatiality that deploys the metaphors of bubbles and foams to imagine space and change. After introducing the method and theory that guide this investigation, the author will introduce and describe the foams…

Song, Kim H.; Coppersmith, Sarah A. – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2020
This qualitative study examined how participating in-service teachers demonstrated linguistically and culturally responsive mathematical teaching (LCRMT) competences after they completed a year-long National Professional Development Program grant-funded project. A two-dimensional LCRMT framework was developed to measure participating teachers'…

Leonard, Jacqueline – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2020
Prior to becoming a mathematics educator, I was a teacher in Prince George's County, Maryland. Because of the success I experienced with culturally relevant pedagogy (CRP), it became part of my research agenda along with teaching mathematics for social justice (TMfSJ). Databases like 23andme and Ancestry can be used as a context for CRP and TMfSJ.…

Leonard, Jacqueline; Walker, Erica N.; Bloom, Victoria R.; Joseph, Nicole M. – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2020
In this chapter, the authors use Black Feminist Thought (BFT) to examine the mathematics education and the educational attainment of African American females in a matrilineal line that spans five generations. A cross analysis of school experiences, from a maternal great-great-grandmother to her great-great-granddaughter, reveal a portrait of…

Lubienski, Sarah Theule; Pinheiro, Weverton Ataide – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2020
In this article, we begin by taking stock of broad trends related to gender and mathematics, focusing primarily on patterns within the United States and considering how these patterns may vary by social class and race. This article is not a traditional, empirical piece but instead pulls together evidence from quantitative and qualitative studies…

Lo, Michelle T.; Ruef, Jennifer L. – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2020
As institutions strive to improve teaching and learning for all, educators must consider equitable instruction. This includes equitable distributions of authority and agency among students. The authors define distribution of authority as shared opportunities for decision-making in enacting mathematical tasks and agency as the power to carry out…

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…

Davis, Julius; Martin, Danny Bernard – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2018
Couched within a larger critique of assessment practices and how they are used to stigmatize African American children, the authors examine teachers' instructional practices in response to demands of increasing test scores. Many mathematics teachers might be unaware of how these test-driven instructional practices can simultaneously reflect…

Paek, Pamela L. – Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 2018
The goal of the practices worthy of attention (PWOA) project was to surface innovative practices currently in use by urban schools and districts that show promise of improving students' secondary mathematics performance. Each school and district explored has a different perspective and a unique set of practices in place to improve secondary…

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…
