This editorial discusses how research can have a larger impact on educational practice and what kinds of research can have the greatest impact on educational practice.
This commentary provides a framework for future research that hypothesizes research-based equitable mathematics teaching practices in support of the CCSSM’s Standards for Mathematical Practice, connecting research, policy, and practice in order to realize the equity potential of the CCSSM.
A 14-year old child with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia participated in 52 weeks of robotics task-based interviews. The authors asked the following questions during their research: Can robotics play support the devolution of a fundamental situation to an adidactic situation of mathematics for children who are critically ill? When children with critical illness engage in robotics play, what are the key features of the robotics phenomenon that support devolution to an adidactic situation?
In a previous study of 2 schools in England that taught mathematics very differently, the first author found that a project-based mathematics approach resulted in higher achievement, greater understanding, and more appreciation of mathematics than a traditional approach. This follow-up showed that the young adults who had experienced the 2 mathematics teaching approaches developed profoundly different relationships with mathematics knowledge that contributed toward the shaping of different identities as learners and users of mathematics.
