We are delighted to announce that the 2019 Janet Duffin Award goes to two teams of researchers:
Barnes, A. (2019). Perseverance in mathematical reasoning: The role of children’s conative focus in the productive interplay between cognition and affect. 21(3), 271-294.
Zakaryan, D., & Ribeiro, M. (2019). Mathematics teachers’ specialized knowledge: A secondary teacher’s knowledge of rational numbers. 21(1), 25-42.
The Janet Duffin Award is presented annually for the most outstanding contribution to the Research in Mathematics Education journal. The 2019 award was decided by a poll of BSRLM members, who were invited to vote for the article they judged to be the most significant contribution to the journal in 2019. We would like to thank all our members for the contribution to the poll as we had a very positive response. The top two articles both received 15.5% each of the total vote, followed closely by the second and third places.
Our BSRLM members are aware that the winning authors are invited to give a lecture at one of our conferences; however, due to the current pandemic we currently do not know when this may take place. We will keep our informed of any new developments.
