To begin, descriptions of mathematical activity and critical education invite the reader to anticipate the ways that the two can intersect. Next, the book details practices and theories of math education infused with critical, Marxist, anti-racist, anti-oppressive, feminist, anarchist, and ecojustice pedagogies. Each of these includes theoretical considerations as well as sample practices and lesson plans for use in and outside of schools. Also, the politics of math education is reviewed with a focus on math education s content and purpose. Written in an accessible style, the book intends to provide a meaningful experience for readers with a variety of prior knowledge- little to no mathematical knowledge or understanding of critical education is assumed.
