A Socio-Ecological Framework for Research in Mathematics Education

Nicole Louie and Wan-Yue Zhan

mathematics education (p. 94). They expressed “optimism” (p. 95) that this would change as the field as a whole increasingly broadened its theoretical roots beyond the psychological traditions from which it first sprouted. The March 2022 issue of JRME seems

Research Commentary: Working at the Boundaries of Mathematics Education and Statistics Education Communities of Practice

Randall E. Groth

Statistics education has begun to mature as a discipline distinct from mathematics education, creating new perspectives on the teaching and learning of statistics. This commentary emphasizes the importance of coordinating perspectives from statistics education and mathematics education through boundary interactions between the two communities of practice. I argue that such interactions are particularly vital in shared problem spaces related to the teaching and learning of measurement, variability, and contextualized problems. Collaborative work within these shared problem spaces can contribute to the vitality of each discipline. Neglect of the shared problem spaces may contribute to insularity and have negative consequences for research and school curricula. Challenges of working at the boundaries are considered, and strategies for overcoming the challenges are proposed.

Research in Mathematics Education: The Role of Theory and of Aptitude-Treatment-Interaction

Jerry P. Becker

This paper seeks to focus attention on the current ferment in mathematics education and on the need for more research in mathematics education. In particular, special attention is placed on the need for a theory of mathematics learning and teaching. Emphasis is also placed on the contributions of empirical research and, in particular, that of Aptitude-Treatment-Interaction research, to building an organized body of knowledge about mathematics education. The author concludes the paper with some remarks about training researchers.

CBTE in Elementary Mathematics Education

William D. McKillip

Some aspects of competency-based teacher education (CBTE), as they apply to the preparation of teachers of mathematics, are explored in this article. Essential and distinguishing features of CBTE are examined and related to the University of Georgia experience in CBTE, and some nonessential features of CBTE are identified. A “competency” and how competencies may be identified are discussed, along with the effects of a competency orientation on methods courses, student teaching, and internship experiences. Some research trends related to CBTE are also touched on. And finally, the development of a competency is described.
