The mathematics education research community seems particularly cohesive and active, as evidenced for instance by the fact that the mathematics education group is now the largest division in the American Educational Research Association. The procedures for validating knowledge claims that have emerged in recent decades, including peer review of journal articles, conference papers, research grant applications, and doctoral thesis examinations, are becoming more flexible and the criteria more varied.

It is effected by an apprenticeship into the practices of classroom mathematics that carry cultural capital (Bourdieu, 1979). The agents of the apprenticeship are the teacher and the texts, but also the acceptance or acquiescence of those students who become apprenticed. In the next three sections I examine aspects of situated theory: the need for a consideration of how subjectivities are produced in practices, as argued by Walkerdine and others; the particular nature of the practices of the mathematics classroom and the implications it has for notions of apprenticeship; and the problem of a suitable mechanism in Lave’s theory of learning (1996, p.
