Product Description

By David Stinson, Anita Wager

Selected as one of the Top 75 New York Times Best-Selling Education Books of 2013

Mathematics as a Catalyst for Change—for ALL Students

Educators increasingly recognize the important role that mathematics teaching plays in helping students to understand and overcome social injustice and inequality. This collection of original articles is the start of a compelling conversation among some of the leading figures in critical and social justice mathematics, a number of teachers and educators who have been inspired by them and who have inspiring stories of their own to tell—and any reader interested in the intersection of education and social justice. An important read for every educator, this book shows how to teach mathematics so that all students are given the tools they need to confront issues of social justice today and in the future.

PRAISE FOR Teaching Mathematics for Social Justice:Conversations with Educators
"Teaching Mathematics for Social Justice presents a collection of engaging and important ideas that can help transform mathematics from a traumatic and unfair learning experience to one that is enjoyable and equitable. The editors include some of the most insightful educators in this area, who think deeply about issues of social justice, in theory and practice, and work to make a real impact in children’s lives." —Jo Boaler Professor, School of Education, Stanford University

"The renowned mathematics educator Bob Moses declared that during the 1950s and ’60s literacy was seen as the key civil right and that today, in the midst of the knowledge economy, mathematics is the new civil right. In this volume, Stinson and Wager have assembled a stellar group of scholars who understand that mandate. We no longer have the luxury of thinking of mathematics as the purview of a privileged few. It is exciting to see mathematics educators take up the responsibility of making mathematics an equal-opportunity and equal-access field of study. This book is going to be a major contribution to both mathematics education and equity education."—Gloria Ladson-Billings Professor, The Kellner Family Chair in Urban Education, School of Education, University of Wisconsin–Madison

"Teaching Mathematics for Social Justice is a significant contribution. It is important not only for those mathematics educators who understand the connections between mathematics and the reproduction or interruption of inequality but also to the larger community of critical educators who are committed to building an education that is truly emancipatory."—Michael W. Apple John Bascom Professor of Curriculum and Instruction and Educational Policy Studies, School of Education, University of Wisconsin, Madison

Achieving Fluency: Special Education and Mathematics
"Is it a learning disability or a teaching disability?"

Achieving Fluency presents the understandings that all teachers need to play a role in the education of students who struggle: those with disabilities and those who simply lack essential foundational knowledge. This book serves teachers and supervisors by sharing increasingly intensive instructional interventions for struggling students on essential topics aligned with NCTM's Curriculum Focal Points, the new Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, and the practices and processes that overlap the content. These approaches are useful for both overcoming ineffective approaches and implementing preventive approaches.
