This document summarizes and reviews mathematics education research reported in Australasia, or conducted by Australasians and reported elsewhere, during 1992-1995. Part I, "Contexts for Mathematics Education," contains four papers: "Social and Cultural Contexts in Mathematics Education" (R. Zevenbergen, B. Atweh, C. Kanes, & T. Cooper), "Research into Ethnomathematics in Australasia" (R. Peard), "Gender and Mathematics" (M. Barnes & M. Horne), and "Politics of Mathematics Education: Australasian Perspectives" (K. Clements & J. Thomas). Part II "Issues in Learning and Instruction," contains five papers: "Constructivist Research in Teaching and Learning Mathematics" (J. Malone & D. Ireland), "Mathematical Cognition and Instruction" (M. Chinnappan & L. English), "Advanced Mathematical Thinking" (P. White & J. Pegg), "Research in Mathematical Problem Solving" (S. Nisbet, I. Putt, & M. Taplin), and "Researching Language Factors in Mathematics Education: The Australasian Contribution" (N. Ellerton & K. Clements). Two papers are contained in Part III, "Teachers and Learners": "Research into the Professional Development of Mathematics Teachers" (C. Kanes & S. Nisbet), and "Understanding the Adult Learning of Mathematics" (G. FitzSimons). Part IV, "Specific Curriculum Areas," contains four papers: "Research in Early Arithmetical Learning and Teaching" (B. Wright, J. Mulligan, R. Stewart, & J. Bobis); "Space, Geometry, Measurement, and Visualisation" (K. Owens, M. Mitchelmore, L. Outhred, & J. Pegg); "Research into the Learning and Teaching of Stochastics" (J. Truran & K. Truran); and "Research into the Teaching and Learning of Algebra" (M. MacGregor & C. Quinlan.
