Exploring socially just pathways to curiosity, joy, struggle and success in mathematics learning
David uses approaches from sociology and gender studies to examine the relationship between who we are (in particular our social class, ethnicity and gender) and which school subjects we like and do well in. As a former secondary mathematics teacher, he is especially interested in educational inequalities in mathematics learning and in ways of teaching that enable more students to experience curiosity, joy, struggle and success in mathematics.His current research has two main streams:1) Collaborating with secondary mathematics departments that are transitioning to mixed 'ability' classes to make the transition successful for students and teachers;2) Working with Maths Craft NZ to better understand the educational potential of craft-based mathematics learning to make mathematics more accessible and rewarding
