Abstract

CAPTeaM (Challenging Ableist Perspectives on the Teaching of Mathematics) investigates how ableist perspectives – according to which to be able-bodied is the norm and disability is a disadvantage that must be overcome – impact upon the teaching of mathematics. CAPTeaM is a partnership between researchers in the UK and Brazil which brings together approaches to investigating and transforming teacher beliefs and research into the mathematical learning of disabled students. We develop and trial situation-specific tasks that invite teacher reflection on incidents of disabled students’ mathematical contributions. In this paper we present two types of tasks and illustrate analyses of data collected from 81 teachers that explore their views on including these contributions in their mathematics classrooms.
