Identity as a lens to understand learning mathematics: Developing a model.
MetadataShow full item record
In this discussion article we consider mathematics learning as a process of developing a mathematical identity. This process is constituted by relationships between three key components - the teacher, the students and the discipline of mathematics. It is posited that the teacher's role is to facilitate the development of students' mathematical identities by relationally bridging student and the subject. Fundamentally, this requires that mathematics teachers have well-developed personal mathematical identities.
