ab: Summary: It started with the question “How can (and will) teachers of
mathematics in Canada both change the strategies and approaches that
they use to teach mathematics AND infuse First Nations, Métis and
Inuit content, perspectives, and ways of knowing into that teaching?”
and with the then unjustified belief that the two undertakings were
somehow connected. This study uses the theoretical lenses of two
different worldviews to analyze the new teaching and learning
expectations proposed within the Western and Northern Canadian Protocol
Common Curriculum Framework documents to explore the possibility of
such connections. Further, the results of our analysis give rise to a
new approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics that resides
beyond reform approach on the math wars continuum: the transreform
approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics.
