Manizade co-authors book on research on teaching mathematics
Professor of Mathematics Education Agida Manizade is the leading editor and co-author of the newly published open-access book “The Evolution of Research on Teaching Mathematics: International Perspectives in the Digital Era.”
Manizade wrote the book over two years with co-authors Nils Buchholtz, a professor at the University of Hamburg, Germany; and Kim Beswick, a professor at the University of South Wales in Kensington, Australia. Alexander S. Moore, a former Radford student in the mathematics education M.S. program, co-authored a chapter in the book.
Published by Springer-Nature, the book “investigates current issues related to the evolution of research on teaching mathematics and examines up to 30 years of presage-process-product research in mathematics with respect to conceptualization, instrumentation and design.” The writers also provide a critique and a look into the future of research on teaching mathematics.
Manizade joined the Radford University Department of Mathematics and Statistics in 2009, and in 2019, she received the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) Outstanding Faculty Award, which recognizes superior accomplishments in teaching, research and public service.
The professor is currently interim associate dean of Radford’s College of Graduate Studies and serves as president of both the Virginia Council of Teachers of Mathematics and Radford Child Development Inc. Manizade is also the founding director of the Secondary Mathematics Professional Development Center.
