Indigo Esmonde

Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley
Assistant Professor

Dr. Esmonde’s research draws on sociocultural theories of learning and development to consider issues of equity in mathematics education. She argues that an understanding of equity must take into account how the details of classroom interaction provide or deny students with access to ideas about mathematics, and access to positive mathematical and cultural identities.

Currently, Dr. Esmonde has several ongoing projects, including the Longitudinal Study of Collaboration in Mathematics, focusing on how students develop and use 'repertoires of collaborative practice' in high school mathematics. The goal is to understand connections between students’ mathematical understanding and group interaction practices, and how these changed over time. In tandem with this study, she has been working with researchers from Stanford University and University of Washington on an interview study with several distinct populations: mathematics students, experienced teachers, pre-service teachers, and professional musicians.

Dr. Esmonde teaches general courses in mathematics education for both the undergraduate and graduate programs and OISE, and more specialized courses in issues of culture, equity and diversity in mathematics education.
