Sümmermann, Moritz L.; Rott, Benjamin – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2020
While design of artefacts plays a large role in mathematics education, in this paper we argue that this is not reflected in mathematics education research. Design may only be considered for publication as an appendix for or as a result of empirical research. We argue that this development, which is in line with the fading of subject-matter…
