Concerns about quality mathematics education are often posed in terms of the types of mathematics that are worthwhile and valuable for both the student and society in general, and about how to best support students so that they can develop this mathematics. Concerns about equity are about who is excluded from the opportunity to develop quality mathematics within our current practices and systems, and about how to remove social barriers that systematically disadvantage those students. This collection of chapters summarises our learning about the achievement of both equity and quality agendas in mathematics education and to move forward the debate on their importance for the field.Washington students would also attend these sessions, and after some practice, students at both schools were able to work together using the distance learning equipment to solve challenging problems. ... also allowed Hedrick to offer additional assistance to the Jefferson students, who through administrative permission were allowed to miss other classes in order to take full advantage of the visits.
