By highlighting the curriculum modifications that lead to maintaining, or enhancing, the mathematical quality of an algebra lesson introducing the substitution method for solving systems of equations from an algebra textbook, we present an analysis of how a teacher and her students impact how the mathematical ideas unfold across the lesson and how they are experienced. Using a narrative-based analytical approach to write the stories of the written and enacted lessons, we found key similarities and differences in the lessons. In comparing the mathematical plots, we found evidence of how the teacher and students alter the unfolding story with the incorporation of more jamming than seen in the text and more questions developed based on the students’ needs and their responses.

We use a narrative framework to investigate how mathematics textbook lessons can promote sustained student inquiry. Our analysis of four high school textbook lessons on the SSA congruence property, three of which contain explorations, reveals how explorations can promote problem-solving perseverance by inspiring readers to raise mathematical questions and by keeping these questions open throughout significant portions of the lesson. Furthermore, student curiosity and anticipation can be enhanced through ambiguity. Stark structural differences exist among lessons with explorations, suggesting that explorations are not necessarily supportive of sustained student inquiry. These insights not only enable educators to learn whether and how a lesson encourages inquiry but also support the design of new curricular materials aligned with the goals of reform.

The persistence of a 120 year-old mathematics curriculum despite dramatic changes in society (Dossey et al., 2016; NCTM, 2018) and the failure of the US mathematics education system to achieve many of its stated aims, especially for students from traditionally marginalized populations (Attridge & Inglis, 2013; Carnevale & Desrochers, 2003a; Ganter & Barker, 2004; Kastberg et al., 2016; Lei et al., 2015; Mullis et al., 2016) raises the question:“What aims, if any, actually shape the curriculum experienced by students?”
