The case studies and the curriculum
The participants in the case studies were not in general asked to talk in detail about the mathematics they do. However in order that lecturers can use clips from the interviews as illustration during mathematics lectures, we have indicated some of the subject areas to which each interview might be relevant.
The areas naturally overlap and the terminology is not intended to be in any way definitive.
