7. Collaborative Learning within Critical Mathematics Education

This chapter investigates ways in which collaborative learning in critical mathematics education can promote critical citizenship and democracy. Drawing on critical participatory action research in a US high-school classroom, the article argues that the critical mathematics education approach to collaborative learning is a coherent alternative to neoliberal, market-driven approaches. The results suggest that collaborative learning within critical mathematics education should aim to transfer classrooms to communities of learners in light of dialogic pedagogy and inquiry-based education.
