Thank you to everyone who read (and liked!) my inaugral post yesterday. It was wonderful to be well received.
Having taught high-school mathematics for several years I am currently studying a Master of Education (Honours) in mathematics education, with the aim to ‘upgrade’ to a PhD later this year. My research is addressing how the constructivist epistemology (more specifically explicit instruction in metacognitive and self-reflective strategies) influences students’ affective domain. Mathematics education and research excites me greatly. I’m thrilled that I have the opportunity to write and work in this area.
This blog will be (mostly) a collection of opinion pieces on contemporary issues in mathematics education, with an Australian focus. More often than not topics will be generated from recent news headlines.
Thank-you for taking the time to read!
