Recent Australasian theses in the field of mathematics education
The following list includes mathematics education PhD, Masters and Honours theses from Australia and New Zealand since 1999 and from MERGA members who graduated in other parts of Australasia who have submitted abstracts to VP(Research). Graduates, if your thesis (or a student's thesis) is not on this list, please email the relevant details and abstract to Judy Mousley. The current list is fairly complete post 1999, but if earlier Australiasian graduates wish to have their mathematics education theses listed then an email to Judy with your name, the institution and year, and your abstract would be appreciated.
The links below lead to authors' abstracts. Full publication details and full text (in some cases) may be available via Informit, the Australian Council for Educational Research [ACER] Cunningham Library, and/or the National Library of Australia .
