## Abstract

The study examines how mathematical reasoning is socially gendered among Palestinian/Arab Israeli teachers. Middle and high school mathematics teachers (n=49) in Arabic-language schools participated by first classifying five solutions to each of five mathematics questions according to: Procedural (school algorithm), creative-logical (non-standard), or guess-and-check. Participants then were prompted to attribute each solution to four provided categories: High/low achieving girl or boy. Participants attributed most (68%) of the creative/logical solutions to high-achieving boys, most (69%) of the procedural solutions to high-achieving girls, and most (66%) of the guess-and-check solutions to low-achieving boys.
