Abstract

In this symposium, we argue that a deeper understanding of what impacts on teaching and learning in mathematics education can be gained by foregrounding the concept of identity and exploring its explanatory potential. In this paper we provide on overview of identity and introduce a scenario from mathematics preservice teacher education that is then interpreted from three theoretical perspectives in the papers that follow.
