Abstract [en]

Research in mathematics education is interdisciplinary. According to Higginson (1980), mathematics, philosophy, psychology, and sociology are contributing disciplines to mathematics education (similar to what Michael Otte called Bezugsdisziplinen; Otte et al. 1974, p. 20). Linguistics and semiotics could be added. Framing of research, by means of theories or methods from these, amounts to different approaches, mathematics itself being one obvious choice. According to one view, mathematics education as a research field belongs to mathematics: at the second International Congress on Mathematical Education (ICME) in Exeter, Zofia Krygowska suggested that mathematics education should be classified as “a part of mathematics with a status similar to that of analysis or topology” (Howson 1973, p. 48). Another view sees mathematics education as an autonomous science (didactics of mathematicsas Hans Georg Steiner in 1968 called the new discipline he wanted to establish; see...
