ab: From the text: The ability of students to learn mathematics with
understanding is strengthened by a positive school environment. Such an
environment depends on a classroom ethos. Just as important is the
entire school community, in which all students are expected to learn
through active participation and all teachers are expected to engage
all students in mathematical tasks. This article recounts how one small
urban school in northern New Jersey developed a school environment that
created a positive mathematics culture.
