Cooke, Audrey – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Although it is now more commonly acknowledged that young children can engage with mathematics, it is not as commonly acknowledged that really young children (such as those aged under three years) can engage with and think mathematically. One of the reasons for this is the inability of adults to recognise mathematics in what these young children…

Gutiérrez, Rochelle – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
This paper offers specific implications for teaching and learning and brings into conversation ideas from ethnomathematics (including Western mathematics), postcolonial theory, aesthetics, biology, and Indigenous knowledge in order to propose a new vision for practicing mathematics, what I call mathematx. I build upon the work of sustainability in…

Stinson, David W.; Walshaw, Margaret – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
In this essay, traveling through the past half-century, the authors illustrate how mathematics education research shifted, theoretical, beyond its psychological and mathematical roots. Mapping four historical moments of mathematics education research onto broader paradigms of inquiry, the authors make a case for the field to take up a theoretical…

Steffe, Leslie P. – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
Starting with Woodworth and Thorndike's classical experiment published in 1901, major periods in mathematics education throughout 20th century and on into the current century are reviewed in terms of competing epistemological and psychological paradigms that were operating within as well as across the major periods. The periods were marked by…

Gervasoni, Ann; Lowrie, Tom; Logan, Tracy; Larkin, Kevin; Bateup, Claudette; Kinny-Lewis, Caroline – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
The symposium provides an overview of the Early Years STEM Australia (ELSA) program. The conceptual underpinnings of the program are framed within STEM practices, rather than traditional thinking concerning the integration of discipline content knowledge. We will argue that our focus on practices is more aligned with the play-based and intentional…

Jazby, Dan – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2017
Public discourse concerning STEM has an increasing influence on mathematics education, yet the exact role that mathematics plays in STEM is hard to define. I compare STEM to numeracy to investigate how mathematics is repositioned in these two discourses. Each is analysed in terms of rhetorics that argue for the worth of mathematics education.…

McCluskey, Catherine; Mulligan, Joanne; Mitchelmore, Mike – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
The mathematical proficiencies in the "Australian Curriculum: Mathematics" of understanding, problem solving, reasoning, and fluency are intended to be entwined actions that work together to build generalised understandings of mathematical concepts. A content analysis identifying the incidence of key proficiency terms (KPTs) embedded in…

Jorgensen, Robyn; Lamb, Janeen; Larkin, Kevin – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2016
The aim of this paper is propositional and is based on research findings which suggest that success in mathematics teaching and reform is contingent upon having key personnel in schools to lead curriculum reform. Based on the outcomes of a large national study on successful practice in the teaching of numeracy for some of Australia's most…

Dubbs, Christopher – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2016
Evidenced by the lack of research considering queer students, mathematics education researchers are continuing to marginalize the experiences of queer youth and the only resolution is to center the queer student experience in the mathematics context. To accomplish this, I choose to dwell in the borderlands between queer theory and mathematics not…

Fitzallen, Noleine – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2015
The emphasis on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education in recent times could be perceived as business as usual or as an opportunity for innovation and change in mathematics classrooms. Either option presents challenges for mathematics educators who are expected to contribute to the foundations of a STEM literate…

Lowrie, Tom – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2015
Mathematics education is highly regarded as a research field within our region, especially when compared to other fields within the broader education discipline. The field has been relatively cohesive, well organised and internationally influential in a universally strong field. Mathematics education research has developed and evolved in…

Berry, Robert Q., III – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2015
An examination of past research, policies, and reforms in mathematics education suggests that there have always been, and remain, tensions in conceptualizing the aims and goals of mathematics teaching and learning. While the disproportionality and conditions of marginalized learners is a cause for concern, it is important to understand that…

Barabé, Geneviève; Proulx, Jérôme – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2015
In this paper we offer a review of sorts of the studies conducted around issues of problem posing in mathematics education research. We first ground the work on problem posing in the seminal work of Polya and of Brown and Walter, which influenced most studies on this subject. We then propose two perspectives taken on problem posing: the implicit…

Brown, Jill P.; Stillman, Gloria – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2014
Ten years ago the construct, affordance, was rising in prominence in scholarly literature. A proliferation of different uses and meanings was evident. Beginning with its origin in the work of Gibson, we traced its development and use in various scholarly fields. This paper revisits our original question with respect to its utility in mathematics…

Anakin, Megan; Linsell, Chris – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2014
The concept of a growth-oriented disposition framed the analysis of theoretical and practical dimensions of pre-service teachers' mathematics content knowledge. We identify historical hangovers, tacit habits, and pedagogical strangleholds that present challenges to the way mathematics education researchers interact with the mathematics content…
