Reviewing 15 years of research in UK mathematics education: Continuity, change and lessons for the future

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearch

Abstract

This paper provides an overview of work on a commissioned review offering a critical reflection of BSRLM conference proceedings from the last 15 years (2003-2017). We give a statistical overview of the 773 Informal Proceedings papers published during this period, examining trends in research, highlighting strengths and identifying gaps. We present our coding system, methodology and rigorous approach to inter-coder reliability. We find a heavy focus on empirical studies, early support for seminal projects and a strong interest in specific topics such as geometry and teacher development. There are limited papers addressing the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). We contrast these findings with the previous BSRLM proceedings review (1995-2002).
