A co-publication of the AMS and CBMS

This fifth volume of *Research in Collegiate Mathematics Education*
(RCME) presents state-of-the-art research on understanding, teaching, and
learning mathematics at the post-secondary level. The articles in RCME are
peer-reviewed for two major features: (1) advancing our understanding of
collegiate mathematics education, and (2) readability by a wide audience of
practicing mathematicians interested in issues affecting their own students.
This is not a collection of scholarly arcana, but a compilation of useful and
informative research regarding the ways our students think about and learn
mathematics.

The volume begins with a study from Mexico of the cross-cutting concept of variable followed by two studies dealing with aspects of calculus reform. The next study frames its discussion of students' conceptions of infinite sets using the psychological work of Efraim Fischbein on (mathematical) intuition. This is followed by two papers concerned with APOS theory and other frameworks regarding mathematical understanding. The final study provides some preliminary results on student learning using technology when lessons are delivered via the Internet.

Whether specialists in education or mathematicians interested in finding out about the field, readers will obtain new insights about teaching and learning and will take away ideas they can use.

Also available from the AMS are RCME IV , III , II , and I in the series, CBMS (Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences) Issues in Mathematics Education.

This series is published in cooperation with the Mathematical Association of America.
