Towards a Socially Just Mathematics Curriculum: A Theoretical and Practical Approach

This new book co-authored by Tony Cotton and Balbir Kaur is published in June and available for pre-order from 13 May.


Drawing from many years of shared experiences in mathematics teaching and teacher education, the authors of Towards a Socially Just Mathematics Curriculum offer a pedagogical model that incorporates and introduces learners to new cultures, challenges stereotypes, uses mathematics to discuss and act for social justice, and develops a well-rounded and socially just pedagogy. Readers will be encouraged to reflect on their own teaching practice and to identify areas for development, creating a more inclusive and equal mathematics experience for all learners.

Split into three distinct parts and filled with practical applications for the classroom, this essential book explores:

  • Translating theory into practice by engaging in education for social justice;
  • Applying this theory to teaching and learning across the Early Years, primary education and secondary education; and
  • Reflecting on professional practice and identifying ways forward to continue providing an inclusive and equitable mathematics learning experience for all students.

This is an essential read for those interested in providing an inclusive, socially just mathematics education for their learners, including teachers, teaching assistants, senior leaders and trainees within primary and secondary schools.

Please visit the publisher's website for more information and to pre-order the book.
