Did you know you can measure whether students have fragmented or cohesive conceptions of mathematics, or whether they learn at a surface- or deep-level? Did you know there are concept inventories available for research purposes at the level of prealgebra / elementary algebra and at the calculus level? Did you know there are inventories that will measure whether instructors are using student-centered approaches to teaching, or how instructors perceive their teaching environment? No? I didn’t either. I’m thinking that if we put our heads together, colleges could participate together to perform some truly outstanding research in the field of math education. Let me share what I’ve learned and we’ll tackle it together.
