Abstract [en]

In this paper, we discuss how critical mathematics education (CME) and actor–networktheory (ANT) come together in a mathematics teacher education course that focuses on the thematiccontext of climate change to study statistics. Acknowledging the complexity that student teachersencounter when asked to move from a mainly instrumental treatment of statistics toward a criticalforeground of data in society, we turn to explore the actant networks, as theorized by ANT, utilized bystudent teachers when asked to imagine teaching from a CME perspective. For this, our study is basedon a series of interviews with student teachers who participated in a statistics course where pollutiondata graphs were discussed, inquiring about their role as future critical mathematics teachers. Thetranscribed interviews, analyzed through ANT, inform us as to how student teachers’ foregrounds arebeing shaped by actants such as the curriculum, social justice, democracy, and source critique, amongothers. Based on the above, we recommend that teacher education should invite active discussion ofthe complexity created when a CME perspective is required. This move would allow for a criticalapproach to critical mathematics education itself that could prepare student teachers to navigate,instead of ignoring or opposing, such complexity.
