A co-publication of the AMS and CBMS

The present volume of Research in Collegiate
Mathematics Education, like previous volumes in this series, reflects
the importance of research in mathematics education at the collegiate
level. The editors in this series encourage communication between
mathematicians and mathematics educators, and as pointed out by the
International Commission of Mathematics Instruction (ICMI), much more
work is needed in concert with these two groups. Indeed, editors of
RCME are aware of this need and the articles published in this series
are in line with that goal.

Nine papers constitute this volume. The first two examine problems
students experience when converting a representation from one
particular system of representations to another. The next three
papers investigate students learning about proofs. In the next two
papers, the focus is instructor knowledge for teaching calculus. The
final two papers in the volume address the nature of
“conception” in mathematics.

Whether they are 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 that
they can use.

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