Mathematics Education – What We Should Do About What We Know ft. Brent Davis (Werklund School of Education)

By Stephen G Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities

Dr. Brent Davis is Professor of Mathematics Education at the Werklund School of Education, University of Calgary. He also leads the research team at Math Minds, a “professional community dedicated to the effective teaching of K-12 mathematics”.

We use Dr. Davis’ work on mathematics education, complexity and curriculum design to discuss the current reform efforts in the province of Alberta. In particular, we focus on the importance of ensuring that what current research tells us is reflected in the way we think about curriculum, teaching approaches and resources.
