Emerging mathematics - shifting awareness in a Steiner school community

Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisDoctor of Philosophy (PhD)


In this writing I aim to offer an experience of the path I took in my endeavour to explore the liminal, ineffable spaces of teaching and learning mathematics and of researching mathematics education.
I make visible my path, which has neither a particular beginning nor a specific ending, by looking back to recognise the path I have been taking.
My journey involves those teachers I was privileged to have alongside me, working with emerging mathematics, emerging teachers, emerging students, and emerging others, as part of a Steiner-Waldorf school community.
My experience entails working with contemplative and movement practices and the healing possibilities available through cultivating the unconscious and the imagination.
