Abstract

The effects of the increasing international academic contacts and the globalisations of research and curriculum in mathematics education are wide spread and their impacts are experienced differently in many countries around the world. This paper reports on data from three focus groups conducted with mathematics educators from universities in Australia and New Zealand, The Philippines and Colombia. It discusses some tensions raised by these academics in coming to grips with the globalisation of their discipline.

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.
