Mathematics Education Research: Past, Present and Future.
Clements, M. A.; Ellerton, Nerida F.
As countries in the vast Asia-Pacific region seek to re-engineer their education systems in order to cope with the rapid pace of economic and social change, an area of the school curriculum that is attracting increasing special attention is that of mathematics education. The work in this book identifies key issues regarding mathematics education in different parts of the world and considers whether these issues have implications for the future of mathematics education in the Asia-Pacific region. The assumptions, methods, and values that underpin contemporary mathematics education research are questioned, and important gaps in contemporary mathematics literature that need to be addressed are identified.
