What do we need to know? Does research in mathematics education address the concerns of teachers and policy makers?
One of the plenary activities for ICME 11 will be a panel presentation addressing the question of whether research in mathematics education is providing the information that teachers and policy makers most need. The panel members are mathematics education researchers from different countries, who will respond to teachers’ and policy makers’ questions submitted through this website.
WE NEED YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS!
Whether or not you plan to attend ICME 11 – and we hope you do – you can make an important contribution by letting us know how research can help you.
To do this, we invite you to submit an important question that you think should be answered by research in mathematics education and also to indicate whether research has helped you in the past and, if so, how.
WE NEED RESPONSES FROM ALL COUNTRIES, ALL SCHOOL TYPES AND ALL LEVELS OF THE SCHOOL SYSTEM INCLUDING TEACHERS, POLICY MAKERS AND CURRICULUM DEVELOPERS.
This is your chance to play a part in shaping the research agenda in mathematics education. To do this, please answer this survey in English. If English is not your first language, then you may need to ask someone to help you submit your answers. We apologize if this causes difficulties for you. It is important that you and your colleagues make your views known and contribute to shaping the direction of mathematics education research internationally.
