Guiding Questions Why conduct research in mathematics education at  community colleges? Theory without practice is empty; practice without theory is blind  (Kwame Nkrumah, 1966). Schoenfeld (2000) says “Research in mathematics education has two  main purposes, one pure and one applied: Pure (Basic Science): To understand the nature of mathematical thinking,  teaching, and learning; Applied (Engineering): To use such understandings to improve mathematics  instruction. What are some examples of research studies and findings  conducted by two-year college faculty?
