ab: Summary: This chapter explores aspects of the relationship between
mathematics education policy and mathematics. It argues that some of
the differences of views and opinions encountered on the stages on
which mathematics education policy is discussed and debated, are often
rooted in very different views of and stances on the nature and essence
of mathematics as a discipline and as a subject. After an initial
attempt at introducing and clarifying some key concepts used in the
chapter, the analysis is supported and illustrated by a number of
concrete examples from the writings of influential organisations,
mathematicians and mathematics educators who have articulated their
positions with regard to mathematics education policy.
