... For example, NCTM listed equity as the first principle for school mathematics. NCTM's research committee released a commentary to increase the awareness about equity in the community of mathematics education research (Gutstein et al., 2005). As more equity issues arose in mathematics education, there were several theoretical perspectives to study them. ...
... The complexity of blurring the boundaries between research and practice remains a key challenge in the field of mathematics education (Arbaugh et al., 2010;Cai et al., 2017b;Heid et al., 2006). Current research on linking research and practice is nascent in theoretical development (Silver & Lunsford, 2017), with insufficient transparency of practices and methods that build collective knowledge across contexts (Cai et al., 2020). ...
