Developing Research in Mathematics Education is the first book in the series New Perspectives on Research in Mathematics Education, to be produced in association with the prestigious European Society for Research in Mathematics Education. This inaugural volume sets out broad advances in research in mathematics education which have accumulated over the last 20 years through the sustained exchange of ideas and collaboration between researchers in the field.
An impressive range of contributors provide specifically European and complementary global perspectives on major areas of research in the field on topics that include:
- the content domains of arithmetic, geometry, algebra, statistics, and probability;
- the mathematical processes of proving and modeling;
- teaching and learning at specific age levels from early years to university;
- teacher education, teaching and classroom practices;
- special aspects of teaching and learning mathematics such as creativity, affect, diversity, technology and history;
- theoretical perspectives and comparative approaches in mathematics education research.
This book is a fascinating compendium of state-of-the-art knowledge for all mathematics education researchers, graduate students, teacher educators and curriculum developers worldwide.
