Red herrings: Post-14 ’best’ mathematics teaching and curricula. (English)
Br. J. Educ. Stud. 52, No. 4, 359-376 (2004).
The Smith Report has generated central questions about the mathematics education of UK adolescents. This paper highlights the close match between the goals of school mathematics, adolescence and exploratory pedagogy. This is contrasted with the prescriptive nature of current regimes. In particular, without careful attention to pedagogy it is possible that the introduction of different pathways may lead to a failure to achieve the outcomes desired by employers and universities, and to inequity in provision for students.
