The 'Resource' Approach to Mathematics Education

The conference has given rise to a book, published in 2019 in the Springer series Advances in Mathematics Education, coordinated by Gabriele Kaiser and Bharath Sriraman:

Trouche, L., Gueudet, G., & Pepin, B. (Eds.) (2018). The 'Resource' Approach to Mathematics Education. Springer.

Advances in mathematics education

The book contains papers written by the plenary lecturers and panelists, and syntheses of each WG, written/authored by their coordinators, in addition to selected and developed contributions. A new resource to come, for keeping alive the results of the Re(s)source 2018 conference!
