Abstract: West and Zimmerman (1987) argue that gender is something that is accomplished and actively produced. In this paper we examine the extent to which female elected representatives choose to highlight their status as women and use gendered imagery and references to promote their own interests and political goals. Using qualitative content analysis, we find that female members of the 110th House of Representatives strategically use their gender status when constructing their autobiographies on their congressional web pages. We examine four areas in the autobiography where gender is selectively used by female members: discussions of their familial roles, their affiliation with the women’s caucus, widows who succeeded their husbands, and their status as trailblazers in the political sphere. Using bivariate statistics, we find that the use of gendered references vary based on the seniority, age, and party affiliation of the female members.

Abstract: This study explores how students learn to create, discuss, and reason with representations. A summer school algebra class provided explicit opportunities for students to create and use representations as tools for problem solving. I analyze the learning a heterogeneous group of three boys. The boys' small group interactions provide evidence of how they learned to communicate and reason with representations; meanwhile, their written representations became more sophisticated. Engaging in representational practice also supported the boys' persistence and productive collaboration. The boys’ substantial learning in only five weeks has implications for giving students access to representation and other mathematical practices.
