Publisher Synopsis

"Many teachers are aware that they do not adequately address the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students in their mathematics classrooms but are unaware of how to start correcting this issue. This book provides an excellent entry point for mathematics teachers to consider how culture and pedagogy intersect the concrete research-based examples."--Erika Bullock, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USAThis new edition will certainly be welcomed by those mathematics educators, mathematics teachers, and teachers of mathematics who seek new ways of reaching students in their classrooms. Leonard's concept of culturally specific pedagogy is based on the foundations of Critical Race Theory and Black Feminist Thought... A main tenet is that all students should know that mathematics is a part their history."--From the Foreword by Martin L. Johnson, University of Maryland, USA"In this updated and expanded edition, Leonard not only strengthens her argument for inextricably linking mathematics and mathematics teaching and learning to culture but also connects culturally specific mathematics to some of the most `talked about' issues of the day. I am confident that this updated and expanded edition will become an invaluable resource for those mathematics educators who possess the will to ensure that every child has access to meaningful culturally specific learning experiences in mathematics classrooms." --David W. Stinson, Georgia State University, USA, and Editor of the Journal of Urban Mathematics Education"This book provides pedagogical and theoretical frameworks that respond to traditional mathematics teaching practices by empowering teachers and learners to see the multiple purposes for learning mathematics, helping learners appreciate why mathematics is important in their lives, and allowing teachers to see that their practices are highly correlated with students' understanding the relevance of mathematics to their lives.
