When we think about the title “Mathematics in different settings”, a number of questions arise. For example:
• How many mathematics are there – one or many? Is there a mathematics that is “prior to”, or independent of, any setting?
• What (who) is it that makes settings “different”? And how does this relate to social differences among people?
• What is an appropriate typology of different settings – for research or for curriculum design purposes? Relatedly, we might ask: who decides what is “important”?
• What is the nature of relations among policy arrangements, research and educational institutional settings?
• How are different settings represented in mathematics teaching and assessment?
• What is the relationship of mathematics education researchers to any setting?
