Open peer commentary on the article “Negotiating Between Learner and Mathematics: A Conceptual Framework to Analyze Teacher Sensitivity Toward Constructivism in a Mathematics Classroom” by Philip Borg, Dave Hewitt & Ian Jones. Upshot: I review the arguments put forward by Borg et al. as to why a teacher cannot be constructivist in their methodologies and ask why they have not considered constructivist methodologies that emphasise negotiation.
