Research Problems in Community College Mathematics Education: Testing the Boundaries of K-12 Research
Mesa, Vilma; Wladis, Claire; Watkins, Laura
Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, v45 n2 p173-192 Mar 2014
This commentary articulates the need to investigate problems of mathematics instruction at community colleges. The authors briefly describe some features of this often-ignored institution and the current status of research. They also make an argument for how investigations of instruction in this setting can both advance understanding of this particular context and give practitioners tools to deal with pressures from policymakers to show short-term results.
