Embodied and emplaced mathematical literacy: A refugee family's funds of knowledge toward regenerative farming

Takeuchi, Miwa A.; Elhowari, Raneem; Yuen, Jenny

In this paper, we present our preliminary findings from our ongoing ethnographic study on out-of-school mathematics learning for refugee families. Our paper provides a glimpse of embodied and emplaced mathematical literacy exercised by a Syrian refugee family engaging in intergenerational, small-scale farming practices, during the pandemic. Aligned with the funds of knowledge framework, we depicted a sketch of mathematical literacy that the family, including young learners, competently engaged. Our analyses call for the discussion on mathematical literacy that could challenge the hegemonic and normative relationships between body and place, and could lead us to the liberating interanimated relationships between body and place.
