# APOS: A Constructivist Theory of Learning in Undergraduate Mathematics Education Research

@inproceedings{DubinskyAPOSAC, title={APOS: A Constructivist Theory of Learning in Undergraduate Mathematics Education Research}, author={Ed Dubinsky and M. A. McDonald} }

The work reported in this paper is based on the principle that research in mathematics education is strengthened in several ways when based on a theoretical perspective. Development of a theory or model in mathematics education should be, in our view, part of an attempt to understand how mathematics can be learned and what an educational program can do to help in this learning. We do not think that a theory of learning is a statement of truth and although it may or may not be an approximation… CONTINUE READING
