ab: Summary: The Kaputian program for research in mathematics education is
characterized by five foci: equity, quantitative reasoning, gradual
development through the grades, advanced technology grounded in
classroom context, and a particular epistemology. Its research
questions concern the development and implementation of mathematics
curricula that are founded on and organized around these
characteristics. In this paper, the author discusses (1) these
characteristics as they pertain to studentsâ€™ engagement with the
mathematics of change and variation and (2) the relation of the
Kaputian program to DNR-based instruction in mathematics.
