Mathematics & Mathematics Education: Searching for Common Ground seeks to deepen a dialogue about what many believe is a growing concern: that the fields of mathematics and mathematics education are growing apart. This gap between the fields is evidenced by differences in research methodologies, research agendas, and vocabulary. In the opening chapter, Michael Fried states, “The divide between the two communities is wasteful and unhealthy for both” (p. 4), and he expresses his “hope that in the end readers will be left with a clearer sense of the mutual benefit both communities stand to lose by failing to strengthen the natural bonds between them” (p. 4).
