This paper aims to review the overall development of constructivist approaches in science education research from two different perspectives, that is a summary of the past development in since education in general and a report of the outline of a recent research project on students` physics misconceptions in particular. In the summary of the past development of constructivist science education, the introduction of constructivism as well as its psychological and philosophical backgrounds are briefly reported. Then main findings of the researches of constructivist approach are discussed in terms of the features of students` misconceptions, of the ways of effective conceptual change, of the implications toward school science education, and of the criticisms given to the constructivist approach. In the report of a recent development, in addition to its background, necessity and implications, the research structure and the format of the data analysis of the study on the map of students; physics misconceptions are presented. It is particularly emphasized that the practical informations and suggestions for actual teaching of school science, such as the database(DB) of students` misconceptions and teaching guides, are of most practical and effective values in order to maximize the advantage of the constructivist approach to science education.

This article retrospects the development process of the psychology of learning its` influence on mathematics education. At the end of the article, brainbased learning science is introduced to examine its possibility to improve the psychology of learning mathematics. Behaviorists points of views such as Ckinner, Guthrie, and Gagne were summarized to discuss the influenced on the learning and teaching of mathematics. Gestalt `theories and Constructivism are also includes in the discussion of developmental process of learning psychology. In elaboration of the brainbased learning science, recent research findings and the possibility of its` impact on mathematics education were discussed. Since mathematics itself is the most abstract subject, it could be more challenging to identify the learning process of mathematics compared with other areas. The possibilities of identifying the learning process of mathematics are cautiously anticipated with a help of new paradigm.

Mathematics Problem solving has had the largest focus in the spread of mathematical topics since 1980. In Korea, most of the articles on problem solving appeared 1981s and 1990s, during which there were special concerns on this issue. And there is general acceptance of the idea that the famous statement. "Problem solving must be the focus of school mathematics"(NCTM, 1980,p.1) in Agenda for Action, reflected in the curriculum of Korea. In a historical review focusing on the problem solving in the National Curriculum of Mathematics, we can infer that the primary goal of mathematics instruction should be to have students become competence problem solver. However, the practices of mathematics instruction should be to have students become competence problem solving have oriented to `teaching about problem solving` and `teaching for problem solving`. The issue of `teaching via problem solving` remain unsolved in the community of mathematics education and we needs much more attention to this issue.

From the mid1990s in Korea, performance assessment has continuously emphasized school mathematics and thus many researchers and teachers have been steadily studying this topic. But, the concepts relevant to performance assessment and its purposed are very confusing because the mathematics educations` different views and voices are vary. As a result most mathematics teachers experience trouble in executing performance assessment was once again revealed in this study which dealt with 15 articles in performance assessment. these 15 articles includes almost every article written on the topic of performance assessment that have been published in 4 domestic journals since December 1997. By examining this inability, it is required that its concepts and purposed should be organized with a common view and newly defined in the near future. Therefore, to successfully accomplish this, this paper outlines the basic problems on the understanding of performance assessment as follows: · What is the proper types(methods) of performance assessment? · Is the subject test a type of performance assessment? · What is the difference between subject test and essay test? · What is the relationship between performance assessment and performance tasks? · What is the relationship between performance tests and project method? · What is a project method? · It is assessment standard or scoring standard to score a test result? · What is the difference between analytic scoring method and holistic scoring method?

In this paper, we present the theory computers and mathematics education based on the concept of microworlds for mathematics education. We first look back some previous papers published in the journal of the Korea society of mathematical education series A and else where. Then we present the new view points regarding mircroworlds and mathematics curriculems, microworlds and mathematics teaching and learning, microworld based problem centered learning, and microworld based diagnostics and debuggings. We use JavaMAL microworld that is designed to make LOGO and dynamic geometry system in one microworld to give some examples to explain the necessary mathematics educational needs for designing microworlds for mathematics education. The JavaMAL microworld is a web based microworld that is programmed using JAVA, and the user can use script language, meanus, keyboard, and mouse interaction to use the environment.

The purpose of this study is to see what the essential characteristics are in teaching probability and statistics among various mathematical fields. we also tried to connect the study of probability and statistics education with what is needed for a science be synthetic to have its own identity as a unique research field. Since we searched for the future direction of the pedagogic study in the probability and statistics we first selected paper on probability and statistics published in (series A), the Journal of Korean Society of Mathematical Education, and establish the following research questions. What kinds of characteristics can be found when paper on probability and statistics published in (series A) are classified into four categories; contents of probability and statistics education, research method of the mathematics education, methods of learning and teaching, and finally measurements and evaluation? We classified papers into two kinds. One is related to the educational contents, consisting of the methods of learning and teaching of the measurement and evaluation. The other is related to the methods of research, which is not a part of the educational curriculum but is essential for establishing the identity of mathematics education. According to the periods, papers on the curricular contents in 1960s were influenced by the New Mathematics, and paper on the curricular contents in 1980s were influenced by `back to basic`. In 1990s, paper on methods of learning and teaching, and measurement and evaluation were increasing in number. Besides, (series A) from the Journal of Korea Society of Mathematical Education covers contents, methods of learning and teaching, and measurement and evaluation. And when I examined the paper on the contents of textbook of a junior high school related to the probability and statistics education and on methods of learning and teaching, I found that those papers occupy 1.84% in . When it comes to the methods of learning and teaching, most of studies in (series A), are about application of concrete implement like experiment and practical application of computer programs, Though this study, I found that overall and more active researches on probability and statistics are required and that the studies about methods of learning and leaching must be made in diverse directions. It is needed that how students recognize probability and statistics, connection, communication and representation in probability and statistics context, too. (series A), does not have papers on methods of study. Mathematics pedagogy is a mixture of various studies  mathematics psychology, mathematical philosophy, the history of mathematics and Mathematics. So If there doesn`t exist a proper method of study adequate in the situation for the mathematics education, the issue of mathematics pedagogy might be taken its own place by that of other students`. We must search for the unique method of study for mathematics education so that mathematics pedagogy has its own identity as a study. The study concerning this aspect is needed.

In this paper, we present a review of research perspectives and investigations in collegiate mathematics education from the four decades of development in the journal published by Korea Society of Mathematical Education. Research of mathematics education at the tertiary level, which had been a minor area in mathematics education, has made a significant development in the last decade in Europe and U.S.A. in this context, international journals for research in mathematics education were selected to comparatively examine and identify research trends and tasks in collegiate mathematics education. Based on the analysis of domestic & international journals, we presnet recommendations for further the development of Korean collegiate mathematics education research. First, it is necessary to diversify the topics of educational research. Korean research of mathematics education at the tertiary level has limited to the issues of curriculum developments teacher education and computer technology. It is necessary to pursue more various topics such as conception development, mathematics attitude and belief, gender, sociocultural aspect if teaching and learning mathematics. Second, it is necessary to apply research methods such as observation, interview, and survey in order to develop grounded theory of mathematics education. We end pedagogical implications of the analyses presented and general conclusions concerning the perspectives for the collegiate mathematics education.
