The Journal for Urban Mathematics Education (JUME) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal, that recently published an article I wrote that explored the question, “What does teaching mathematics as agape, or unconditional love, look like?” Think about it…if a teacher started with unconditional love for students, as defined by agape, what would it look like to teach mathematics?  This article was an attempt at answering that question from a theoretical perspective.  Here is a link to the article and and here is how to cite it:

Amidon, J. (2013). Teaching mathematics as agape: Responding to oppression with unconditional love. Journal of Urban Mathematics Education, 6(1), 19–27.
