article description
I am keen to offer as little explanation as possible for the above work. I can say that it is intended to be a meditation on mathematics inside and outside school and a critique of a) mathematics, b) mathematics education, c) mathematics educational research, and, d) critiques of mathematics education and mathematics educational research. The work also critique’s itself and then critiques that critique (maybe). It is deliberately contradictory.
