By Elena Nardi

This ebook bargains a different point of view on ways that mathematicians: understand their scholars' studying; educate; think about their educating perform. Elena Nardi achieves this by means of utilising fictional, but totally data-grounded, characters to create a talk on those very important matters. the development of those characters is predicated on huge our bodies of knowledge together with excessive targeted workforce interviews with mathematicians and huge analyses of scholars' written paintings, accrued and analyzed over a considerable period.

There needs to be enough anchoring into the reality of the course but enough for the reader to take off into the more general. ’ Subsequent work on ‘chopping’ the Narratives and forming the Chapters took place in May 2005 as follows. 24 But soon, in May 2005, Narratives 6, based on the material from Dataset 6, was added to this database. A month after this entry an updated proposal was submitted to the publisher (see Post-script). A worthy idea which I have not followed through in Part 2(ii) because its illustration is too lengthy.

Most were added in the course of constructing the dialogue. 33 For this I would like to thank the students and faculty who participated in these sessions as well as Paola Iannone for their constructive feedback on the Delphi Excerpts. 34 This work took place in two locations: on the Greek island of Alonissos in the company of my sister Danai Nardi and in the beach house of my friend Margarita (also mentioned in Part 2(i) of this chapter) in Chalkidiki, Greece. I warmly thank them both for their support.

18 26 CHAPTER 2: METHODOLOGY ‘The presentation is in the somewhat unconventional format of a dialogue (My fascination with the dialogic format dates back to my school days in Greece and the experience of the works of Plato. However, within mathematics education literature, an early and defining influence was Imre Lakatos’ Proofs and Refutations (1976)) between a mathematician and a researcher in mathematics education – M and RME respectively. The dialogue is fictional but based on data collected in a series of studies that the author and her associates have been conducting in recent years.
