This is "my list." It is rather random and poorly organized. See my main Math Education Research page.

Understanding by Design
Understanding by Design (UbD - Grant Wiggins, President of Authentic Education) - Granted, But blog, The problem of problems in mathematics podcast. PowerPoint (quite lengthy and complete) by Wiggins on UbD.
Technology and Calculators
Thinking (And Talking) About Technology in Math Classrooms, E. Paul Goldenberg, Education Development Center, Inc. (2000) - "This [excellent] paper aims to help you decide how you stand on whether, when, and how to use computers or calculators, and how to maximize the gains and minimize the risks of their use."
- Six Principles: The Genre Principle (classroom goals & needs of students), The Purpose (of the lesson) Principle, The Answer vs. Analysis Principle (...At such times, a technology that obscures the details and skips directly to the answer is no help.), The Who Does The Thinking Principle, The Change Content Carefully Principle, The Fluent Tool Use Principle.
- "Keeping Learning at the Fore as Change Marches (Inexorably) On" - It's hard to resist a bargain.
