Teaching Algebra Conceptually: The Process of Bringing Research to Practitioners
Anakin, Megan; Lazarovitch, Ayelet
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) (35th, Singapore, Jul 2-6, 2012)
Using a case study, the complex challenge of making mathematics education research accessible to secondary mathematics teachers was addressed with two questions. How can we design a method that will meet the challenge of making research usable for mathematics teachers? And what would this method be? To address this challenge we describe a process and product that emerged from using the stages of design-thinking. We invite fellow researchers to join us in the collective mission of bridging the gap between mathematics research and practice, furthermore, we seek to stimulate conversations about what counts as a research output.
