Redesign of mathematics education


Redesign of mathematics education

(1) Mathematics education has evolved over 5000 years and contains many crooked features that are didactically questionable. Math Ed better be re-designed or re-engineered, starting from sound principles of didactics and from what empirically works for students. (2) Contributions to this community concern texts for the empirical science of didactics of mathematics, and they don't concern texts "by mathematicians for mathematicians". (3) A key text is: "Elegance with Substance" (2009, 2015), (4) In texts, the preferred abbreviation of "redesign of mathematics education" is RoME.

Curation policy:

This community starts by uploading my own texts on this subject. Check out the general research idea in Elegance with Substance. You do not have to agree on particular proposals, since any particular proposal must be discussed by teachers and researchers and be submitted to randomised controlled tests. It are the students who tell us, and show in tests, what works for them. The current objective is to start identifying useful hypotheses for such testing. Contributions to this community are first evaluated by me and perhaps eventually there might be some editorial board.
