In this paper, we develop a theoretical framework on categories of critical reflections relevant for mathematics education. The framework is based on key concepts from critical mathematics education associated with critical citizenship. The framework adds ideas to, and combines, previous ideas and categories of critical reflections within mathematics and mathematical modelling and their applications. The framework can increase awareness of critical perspectives when addressing climate change in mathematics education research or when planning teaching contents on climate change. It can also be used as a tool for analysing critical reflections in empirical studies where climate change is the topic.
Key words: climate change, critical reflections, theoretical framework
