Theme Group 4: Theory, Research and Practice in Mathematical Education

  • Marjorie Carss

Abstract

Theory, research, and practice belong together, but the separation of professional roles of teacher and researcher produces a tendency to separate development. The discussion focussed on those ways in which research activity, whether performed by professional researchers or not, interacts with teachers’ approaches and practices.
