ab: This paper utilizes elementary teachers’ narrative constructions of their
prior experiences learning and teaching math (their math stories) to
understand their implementation of a reform math curriculum. Each of
the teachers’ stories has one or two prevalent themes, such as
“math has meaning” or “math is about tricks and rules” that
frames the way they think about and teach mathematics. These themes
help explain the ways in which the teachers interpret and implement the
reform curriculum. This research has implications for both the design
and the implementation of math reform curricula and policies.
