Abstract

This paper discusses how the involvement of young people in "real" research activities can be an effective pedagogy for learning for mathematics as well other life skills. However, such collaboration with young people presents dilemmas to their teachers. The concepts of productive pedagogy developed by one school reform movement in Australia are used to reflect on the SARUA project that works for students from underrepresented backgrounds in higher 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.
