N2 - In an economic and political crisis, people are crossing national borders in search of a better life. Students from diverse cultures are entering mathematics classrooms and teachers are adopting strategies for value alignment to nourish mathematics teaching and learning practices. Teachers are striving to create harmonious learning environments so that diversity is embraced positively and is utilised in a manner that will enrich mathematical learning. Value alignment allows diversity to be rethought as an empowerment tool for effective mathematics learning. Vignettes from a recent PhD study are used to exemplify strategies that teachers used for value alignment and student engagement in mathematics classrooms.
