What People are Saying About This

Michael W. Apple

"An invaluable resource! Rethinking Mathematics has the potential to change the basic ways we think about and teach one of the most important subjects in schools today. With clarity and insight, it shows how teachers who are dedicated to social justice can act on their commitments in a subject that has for too long been seen as simply a technical area. "--(Michael W. Apple, John Bascom Professor of Curriculum and Instruction and Educational Policy Studies, University of Wisconsin, Madison)
