Notes
1
Investigative teaching is a shorthand form of ‘an investigative approach to mathematics teaching’.
2
The General Certificate of Education Ordinary level (GCE O level) and the Certificate of Secondary Education (CSE) were the national examinations at 16+ in England and Wales prior to the introduction of the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) in 1988. GCE Advanced level (A level) is still (in 1994) a national examination in higher education beyond 16.

What is described here is specific to England and Wales, the educational system within which my study is based. Similar developments have taken place in Scotland and Northern Ireland, although details of curriculum documents and national examinations are different.

Developments in mathematics teaching in the UK as a result of the Cockcroft report, and a report by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate Mathematics from 5 to 16 (HMI, 1985) were paralleled by the Reform Movement in the United States, resulting in the report Everybody Counts (National Research Council, 1989) and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics’ Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM, 1989).

One example is the joint ATM/SEG (Southern Examining Group) GCSE course. See Sutcliffe (1991) and Ollerton and Hewitt (1989).
