Research Interest
His former career as a mathematics teacher in a junior college and subsequently in a secondary school has a heavy influence over his research interest. The perceived gap between reform policies at the ministry HQ and the actual implementation in the schools is of particular interest to him. He views teaching as a complex activity that is not easily broken down into disconnected parts for separatist analysis. He now engages in classroom research as a teacher-researcher in an attempt to unravel the complexity of teaching. He also has an ongoing interest in the use of dynamic geometry software in teaching
