Abstract

This final chapter revisits some of the key issues addressed by the authors and explores a selection of the many research issues that need attention in the advancement of our discipline. Specifically, we give consideration to the following questions: 1. What role can research play in illuminating the multidisciplinary debates on the powerful mathematical ideas required for the 21st century? 2. How can research support more equitable curriculum and learning access to powerful mathematical ideas? 3. How can research support the creation of learning environments that give learners better and more equitable access to powerful mathematical ideas? 4. How can research contribute to the kind of teacher education and teacher development programs that will be needed to facilitate student access to powerful mathematical ideas? 5. How can we assess the extent to which students have gained access to powerful mathematical ideas, and their abilities to make effective use of these ideas? How can research inform such assessment? 6. What are some of the latest research designs in mathematics education? How do we assess and improve research designs in mathematics education? 7. What is the nature of semiotic mediation and what is its role in mathematics education?

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare 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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
