Research and Supervision in Mathematics and Science Education provides student researchers and their supervisors with information about both the essentials of planning, conducting, reporting, and publishing qualitative research, and the characteristics of quality supervision. It is focused primarily for postgraduate research students in mathematics and science education and their supervisors. It will also be of interest to students and faculty in other disciplines that use educational and sociological research paradigms.

The volume builds on two phenomena of recent years: first, the increasing momentum of postgraduate research in mathematics and science education and, second, the resulting need of those involved for knowledge about doing research and about engaging in quality supervision. The decision to address both research and supervision in one volume is a response to the fact that faculty who supervise postgraduate research often are in need of resources covering not only aspects of project and thesis supervision, but also the knowledge to assist students in research design, especially in the qualitative field.

Drawing on recent research and practice, the authors of the chapters in this book illustrate approaches and strategies that have been used successfully with, and by, postgraduate students. The book also has a strong future orientation, describing how postgraduate supervision and research will change as more and more students gain access to and make use of the vast array of technological resources now available.

A necessary and unique addition to books in the field of postgraduate research and supervision, this volume's particular appeal stems from its practical approach, its creative future perspective, and the wide generalizability of the thinking and ideas it presents.
