Dealing with Complexity: New Paradigms for Research in Mathematics Education.
This paper focuses on some of the most important factors that appear to have strongly influenced the development of the dominant research designs used in mathematics education research. Factors discussed that have influenced research design in mathematics education include a concern about increasing the relevance of research to practice and the recognition of the complexity of all aspects of teaching and learning. Some relevant assumptions about student development, teacher development, and program development are also examined. (DDR)
