We need to look at the assu- tions and processes that the models and metaphors implicitly and explicitly contain. In this response I have taken research in mathematics education to be entirely subsumed in educational research generally. I feel we should explore whether there is a specific thrust to mat- matics education in the here and now, and be very practical about it. Gender and Mathematics Education: A German View; C. He has been at the University of Durban-Westville since 1991 Univ. Clements, Pierre Lauginie and Elisabeth de Turckheim.

Gender and Mathematics: Mythology and Misogyny; M. His main research interests are Geometry, Proof, Applications and Modelling, and the History and Philosophy of Mathematics. Assessment in Mathematics Education Study Conference held in Calonge, Spain, April 1991. A major portion of the book is devoted to detailed descriptions of educational systems around the world from the perspective of the role of gender in mathematics. Is Gender a Relevant Variable for Mathematics Education? There seems l- tle point in acquiring knowledge without understanding its meaning. Nickerson, Andreas Stylianides, Ivy Kidron, and Greisy Winicki. Hoyles, Celia; Lagrange, Jean-Baptiste Eds.

Hanna, Gila; de Villiers, Michael Eds. Presenting articles that develop further issues pertaining to gender equity in mathematics education, this volume's premise - that there is no physical or intellectual barrier to the participation of women in mathematics, science, and technology - provides the starting point for analysis and discussion. Mathematics, Women, and Education in New Zealand; M. Mathematics, Gender, and Research; E. Transitions and proof and proving at tertiary level: Annie Selden. Este trabajo aborda el problema del acceso efectivo a la informaci贸n sobre investigaci贸n en Educaci贸n Matem谩tica desde la perspectiva del investigador en formaci贸n latinoamericano inmerso en un contexto socioecon贸mico desfavorable para el desempe帽o de su labor cient铆fica. The developmental nature of mathematical reasoning and proof in teaching and learning from the earliest grades.

La difusi贸n internacional de la investigaci贸n de calidad constituye uno de los principales retos al que se enfrentan los consejos editoriales de las publicaciones cient铆ficas. I will give some examples of what I found to be problems with Menon's position, based around the themes of a was it worth saying anyway; b the function of overstatement ; c methodology and the role of theory in educational research; and d the proposed ideal world of educational research. From 1989 to 2000 she was Co-Editor of the international journal Educational Studies in Mathematics and is now one of its Advisory Editors. Gender and Mathematics Education in Denmark; B. Responsibility: edited by Gila Hanna. Along the way, I will point out differences between the ways research is done in the two fields. Women's Know-How and Authority: Italian Women and Mathematics; R.

Multivariate analysis indicated differences varied from country to country and a significant difference in favor of boys in geometry achievement. Conceptions of proof - in research and in teaching: Richard Cabassut, AnnaMarie Conner, Filyet Asli Ersoz, Fulvia Furinghetti, Hans Niels Jahnke, and Francesca Morselli. Study Volume published by Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1996: Towards Gender Equity in Mathematics Education, ed: Gila Hanna. Cognitive development of proof: David Tall, Oleksiy Yevdokimov, Boris Koichu, Walter Whiteley, Margo Kondratieva, and Ying-Hao Cheng.

The international dissemination of quality research constitutes one of the main challenges for editorial boards of scientific publications. Gender and Mathematics Education: A Snapshot of China; Rui Fen Tang, et al. Study Volume published by Cambridge University Press, 1990, eds: Geoffrey Howson and Jean-Pierre Kahane. Science and Technology Education No. Digital Technologies and Mathematics Teaching and Learning: Rethinking the Terrain Study Conference held in Hanoi, Vietnam, December 2006. Study Volume published by Springer in 2011: Teaching Statistics in School Mathematics-Challenges for Teaching and Teacher Education. Proof and Proving in Mathematics Education Study Conference held on May 10-15, 2009 in Taipei, Taiwan.

Study Volume published by Cambridge University Press, 1986, eds: R. I have found writing this response to be a difficult task, as evidenced by my inability to resist the combination of cliches in the title. In this article, by distinguishing between values and research problems and by calibrating appropriate expectations for research, I address the role that research can and should play in shaping standards. Educational Interfaces between Mathematics and Industry Study Conference which was held on October 11-15, 2010 in Lisbon, Portugal. Using documents from ancient China to teach mathematical proof: Karine Chemla.

A major part of the book comprises a series of detailed descriptive studies of education systems across the world from the perspective of mathematics and gender equity issues. Many women, capable of learning the mathematics required, choose to limit their options by not studying mathematics. I would like to address, from two different perspectives, the question of the criteria used in evaluating research papers in mathematics education. This challenge has been given even greater importance by the assignment to proof of a more prominent place in the mathematics curriculum at all levels. Two Study Volumes published by Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1993: Cases of Assessment in Mathematics Education, ed: Mogens Niss.

The development of suitable curriculum materials and teacher education programs to support the teaching of proof and proving. Experimental approaches to theoretical thinking: Artefacts and proofs. Proof in the Western and Eastern traditions: Implications for mathematics education: Man Keung Siu. The Teaching and Learning of Mathematics at University Level Study Conference held in Singapore, December 1998. From exploration to proof production: Feng-Jui Hsieh, Wang-Shian Horng, and Haw-Yaw Shy. The authors explore the attitudinal and societal reasons for the gender imbalance in these fields and identify potential foci for change, among them curriculum and assessment practices, classroom and school cultures, and teacher education.

The research project investigates a very promising new approach to the teaching of proving: Identifying the factors that favour the reconstruction of a proof. There are also major differences in participation in mathematics-related careers. And it is still better if the ideas themselves are not so much memorized as understood so that one feels that they arise naturally. This presentation discussed differences between mathematics research and mathematics education research and why mathematics education research papers sometimes get rejected. The present volume consists of original scholarly articles that develop further issues pertaining to gender equity in mathematics education. Gender and Mathematics Education in Finland; L.
