Description/Abstract

Many of the articles in this volume reflect the active engagement of researchers in areas of national priority in the teaching and learning of mathematics, demonstrating the involvement of a research community grappling in a rigorous way with complex issues of national and international concern. The chapters address issues within four broad themes Mathematics and Schooling; Teachers and Teacher Development; Mathematics, Language and Meaning; Technology and Learning Mathematics. An introductory article sets the context for considering the quality of research in mathematics education. The volume is an outstanding showcase for mathematics education research in a British context.
