Summing up the education of mathematically gifted students

Diezmann, Carmel M. & Watters, James J. (2002) Summing up the education of mathematically gifted students. In 25th Annual Conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, July 7-10, 2002, Auckland.


Recent government reports identify the importance of producing individuals with high-level mathematical capabilities who can contribute creatively to Australia’s intellectual capital. To address the shortfall in such individuals, mathematically gifted students must be identified and nurtured. Hence, teachers’ programs need to be well-grounded in research on educating the mathematically gifted. In this paper, we report on the status of research on these students, draw upon our research to inform practice, and highlight myths associated with the education of these students.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
