Abstract

This chapter provides a selective review of the research literature on mathematics teaching that attends to and addresses inequities in the learning opportunities offered to students. First, we trace and discuss the growing focus on educational equity in the teaching of mathematics. We then describe the challenges and possibilities for a few prominent equity-based approaches to mathematics teaching (e.g., culturally relevant mathematics teaching, teaching mathematics for social justice, and complex instruction). We also discuss the demands of these equity-based approaches on teachers’ practices.
