Research Gateway


Welcome to the Research Gateway where you can search reports, articles and research papers from the British Education Index, specifically selected for the NCETM.
Often these are available free of charge, and if so, a download icon () indicates that the item can be immediately downloaded. Alternatively there may be a charge to access certain items.

At the heart of mathematics education is teaching and learning and, as professionals, we strive to develop and improve our practice by increasing our associated knowledge and understanding. One way to achieve this is by reading about what others have learned and there is a vast literature "out there" that is not always easily accessible to practitioners, a problem that the Research Gateway aims to remedy.

Some hints on searching the Research Gateway

If you know what you are looking for, using an author's last name or a keyword from the title will normally locate it quickly. Don't be too specific at this stage as a typing error or different spelling may result in an unsuccessful search. If you are searching for reports, articles or research papers about a specific topic, it is helpful to consider a few related key words before you start. Mathematics topics such as fractions or ratios are fairly obvious but if you are searching for a pedagogical consideration such as questioning it might be better to think about a broader keyword such as formative assessment first.You can also access records which require subscription.

Although the free items are obviously worth looking at first, don't dismiss those that you need to pay for! Anyone who is registered with a UK University may have free access to these through their library and it is possible to request copies from the British Library through your local library at much lower cost than that of the publisher.
