Dr. Walker's New Book

Building Mathematics Learning Communities: Improving Outcomes in Urban High Schools


Foreword by BOB MOSES


“This book studies what math students do, how they do it, and what support they need to disengage themselves from our national caste system as it manifests itself through educational inequality.” —From the Foreword by Bob Moses


Building Mathematics Learning Communities is an insightful and informative account of what is required to raise the math performance of students, not only in urban high schools, but in all high schools. Walker provides a blueprint for changing the way urban students should be served in mathematics classrooms and beyond, and offers explicit perspectives and strategies for closing the achievement gap. This is a must-read for the mathematics education community.” —Lee V. Stiff, professor, mathematics education, North Carolina State University; past president, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

Erica N. Walker is Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, Columbia University.
