SummerMath: Research into Practice.
Confrey, Jere
An experience in attempting to transform research into practice is described, with questions raised about the relationship between research and practice. The author begins by describing the two research traditions which exerted the most force on the design of the program. How the philosophy and findings of those traditions were interpreted and implemented is discussed as the SummerMath program is described. This was a six-week program for high school students, to encourage young women to gain an understanding of mathematics in order to increase their participation in mathematics and mathematics-related fields, as well as to implement the findings of research to improve learning. Sections focus on research into practice, research on mathematics learning, curriculum, instruction, women and mathematics, and evaluation. Results of the implementation and new research questions are each presented. (MNS)
