This book, Approaches to Qualitative Research in Mathematics Education: Examples of Methodology and Methods, edited by Angelika Bikner-Ahsbahs, Christine Knipping, and Norma Presmeg, is a timely and valuable addition to the research literature in mathematics education. Across 18 chapters written by more than 30 prominent researchers, the book offers a range of insight and detail that goes beyond what is normally possible within individual articles in mathematics education research journals. The book complements other efforts to capture the many advances in the mathematics education research field over recent years. By capturing the important distinction between ‘method’ (the ‘how’) and ‘methodology’ (the ‘why’) through facilitating the various authors in probing the underlying assumptions of their approaches, the book is to be strongly recommended. While it is not a straightforward read, the various sections of the book offer unmatched insight into the conduct of important research in mathematics education.

Abstract

This book, Approaches to Qualitative Research in Mathematics Education: Examples of Methodology and Methods, edited by Angelika Bikner-Ahsbahs, Christine Knipping, and Norma Presmeg, is a timely and valuable addition to the research literature in mathematics education. Across 18 chapters written by more than 30 prominent researchers, the book offers a range of insight and detail that goes beyond what is normally possible within individual articles in mathematics education research journals. The book complements other efforts to capture the many advances in the mathematics education research field over recent years. By capturing the important distinction between ‘method’ (the ‘how’) and ‘methodology’ (the ‘why’) through facilitating the various authors in probing the underlying assumptions of their approaches, the book is to be strongly recommended. While it is not a straightforward read, the various sections of the book offer unmatched insight into the conduct of important research in mathematics education.
