About this book

This volume documents a range of qualitative research approaches emerged within mathematics education over the last three decades, whilst at the same time revealing their underlying methodologies. Continuing the discussion as begun in the two 2003 ZDM issues dedicated to qualitative empirical methods, this book presents astate of the art overview on qualitative research in mathematics education and beyond. The structure of the book allows the reader to use it as an actual guide for the selection of an appropriate methodology, on a basis of both theoretical depth and practical implications. The methods and examples illustrate how different methodologies come to life when applied to a specific question in a specific context. Many of the methodologies described are also applicable outside mathematics education, but the examples provided are chosen so as to situate the approach in a mathematical context.

Reviews

“This book, Approaches to Qualitative Research in Mathematics Education: Examples of Methodology and Methods, edited by Angelika Bikner-Ahsbahs, Christine Knipping, and Norma Presmeg, is a timely and valuable addition to the research literature in mathematics education. … The book is to be strongly recommended.” (Keith Jones and Chronoula Voutsina, Educational Studies in Mathematics, Vol. 96, 2017)

“Approaches to Qualitative Research in Mathematics Education: Examples of Methodology and Methods is a clever gift for the skeptics who believe that pursuing truth is only possible through traditional empirical research. … The work of the contributors inspires researchers in the field of mathematics education to replicate the studies and, more importantly, creates opportunities to further reflect on the ways theories inform qualitative research designs and methods.” (Woong Lim, MAA Reviews, July, 2015)
