Jennie Golding, Associate Professor of Mathematics Education
Dr Rob Webster hears from Dr Golding about the book series she has co-edited, “What Should Schools Teach? Disciplines, subjects and the pursuit of truth”, part of the “Knowledge and the Curriculum” series published by UCL Press.
Using mathematics as a reference point, Dr Golding points to how thinking around knowledge points to its complementarity of different areas of the curriculum.
