Journal of Research and Development in Education - Proceedings of National Conference on Needed Research in Mathematics Education.
Hooten, Joseph R., Jr.
Journal of Research and Development in Education, V1 N1 Fall 1967
This document is a report on the Conference on Needed Research in Mathematics Education held on the campus of the University of Georgia. A major objective of the conference was an examination of the progress of research in mathematics education as well as the development of guidelines for further research. Toward this end, the Conference was designed to identify research problems, formulate researchable questions, and provide discussion of research procedures in three important areas of mathematics--learning, teaching, and curriculum. The major papers together with the written reactions and discussions have as specific goals (1) the identification of strengths and weaknesses in recent research practices, (2) the identification of specific, crucial problems and issues pertinent to mathematics education and the translation of these into researchable questions which could effectively be investigated through individual or cooperative action, (3) the consideration of theoretical models, designs, and methods of research which could be used to strengthen future research, and (4) the encouragement of greater coordination of related activities.
