New issue of TMME soon to appear

Readers of this blog are probably familiar with The Montana Mathematics Enthusiast already. TMME is an international peer-reviewed journal with a main focus on mathematics education research. The journal has both print and electronic versions. Over the past two years, the main editor of the journal, Professor Bharath Sriraman, has been kind enough to let me print information about new issues (along with his editorials) here before they are printed. This tradition continues, and I am now happy to announce the next issue of TMME, which is going to be a huge double-issue: volume 8, Numbers 1 & 2. Here is a brief overview of the contents of this forthcoming issue
