ABOUT MYSELF
I am a research scholar (PhD student) in Mathematics Education.
My PhD dissertation study explores the nature and extent of everyday mathematical knowledge possessed by middle grade school students living in an urban lowincome settlement that has embedded in it a thriving microenterprise economy. Children living in this settlement either have exposure to the diverse workcontexts prevalent in their neighbourhood or participate in and contribute to the production and income generation right from an early age. In the course of exploration of the potentially rich opportunities available to the middle graders to gather everyday mathematical knowledge, the workcontexts have been characterised from a mathematics learning perspective. The objective of the study is to unpack and document the connections between students' mathematical knowledge, work practices and identity formation, and inquire into the implications of these connections for school learning.
