This strand is called CAPTeaM (Challenging Ableist Perspectives on the Teaching of Mathematics) and is funded by the British Academy. CAPTeaM relates to inclusive education and teacher perspectives on how students with disabilities – in our studies so far deaf, blind or with Down syndrome – engage with mathematics. As a team of researchers from the UK and Brazil we acknowledge, explore and challenge the assumptions about the mathematical abilities of disabled learners that often shape dominant interpretations of mathematics teaching and learning. You can find examples of Tasks and publications from CAPTeaM here.
