Keith Leatham is the editor of Designing, Conducting, and Publishing Quality Research in Mathematics Education. Who would you say is the target audience for your book? The target audience for the book is novice mathematics education researchers--graduate students and new faculty members. What is the big problem you hoped to address with this book? Many novice researchers wish there were more resources to help induct them into the nuts and bolts of designing, conducting, and publishing quality research. This book was written to fill that void for novice mathematics education researchers. Each author considered the following prompt with regard to their chapter: "Imagine you were meeting with a mathematics education graduate student or assistant professor and they were struggling with an issue related to designing, conducting, or publishing quality research…
