Bond, Timothy – Australian Mathematics Education Journal, 2019
The simple and compound interest formulas in isolation have limited usefulness for financial planning--until the concept of a regular payment is introduced. This article presents and discusses a simple investigation given to an advanced Year 10 mathematics class, with most students looking to study Mathematical Methods in Years 11 and 12. This…

Kollosche, David – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2021
Although reasoning is a central concept in mathematics education research, the discipline is still in need of a coherent theoretical framework of mathematical reasoning. With respect to epistemological problems in the dominant discourses on proof, mathematical modelling, and post-truth politics in the discipline, and in accordance with trends in…

Leung, Frederick K. S. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2021
In the past three decades, there has been increased attention on the influence of culture on the teaching and learning of mathematics. Jews and Chinese both have a long history and a rich cultural heritage, and the populations in both communities are known to place high emphasis on education. Has this emphasis anything to do with the cultural…

Reaburn, Robyn – Issues in Educational Research, 2021
Homeschooling, where parents take on the prime responsibility for their children's education, is a growing phenomenon in Australia. Homeschooling is different from distance education or the education at home that has taken place in the COVID-19 pandemic in that the parents make all the decisions about their children's education, including…

Pais, Alexandre – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
In my previous work, I criticised studies within the sociopolitical turn for disavowing a comprehension of schools as places of capitalist production. Here, I extend this critique to what is being flagged as a new turn in educational research. I am referring to biosocial research, particularly in the way it is coupled with new materialist and more…

Avci, Bulent – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2021
This article examines research methodologies for classroom-based research in light of the complementary ideas of Freire and Habermas. After reflecting on classroom-based participatory action research in a secondary mathematics classroom, I discuss the suitability of critical participatory action research in critical mathematics education. Critical…
