Gravemeijer, Koeno; Stephan, Michelle; Julie, Cyril; Lin, Fou-Lai; Ohtani, Minoru – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
This paper attempts to engage the field in a discussion about what mathematics is needed for students to engage in society, especially with an increase in technology and digitalization. In this respect, mathematics holds a special place in STEM as machines do most of the calculations that students are taught in K-12. We raise questions about what…
