97: Mathematics Education


Introduction

Mathematics Education is an area newly added to the MSC effective with the 2000 revision, but of a long heritage. Topics of discourse cover all levels of mathematics education from pre-school to university level, and can focus on the student (through educational psychology, for example), the teacher (continuing development or assessment), the classroom (and the books and technology used in the classroom), or the larger system (policy analysis, cross-cultural comparisons, and so on). Analysis can range from small case studies to large statistical surveys; perspectives range from the fairly philosophical to the clinical.
