About the author (2005)

Graham Jones has taught at universities in Australia and the United State for more than 35 years after commencing his career as a teacher in both elementary schools and high schools. He was the first pro-vice-chancellor at Griffith University, Gold Coast Campus and is an Emeritus Professor at that university and at Illinois State University, Normal, United States.

His research into cognitive aspects of probability started more than 30 years ago at Indiana University, United States, where his PhD. dissertation focused on the probabilistic reasoning of primary-aged children. His subsequent research into the learning and teaching of probability and data exploration has featured the development and validation of cognitive frameworks and the use of these frameworks to inform instruction and assess student learning. Recent articles on this research with other colleagues have appeared in the following journals: Educational Studies in Mathematics (1997, pp. 101-125), Mathematics Education Research Journal (1997, pp. 39-59), Journal for Research in Mathematics Education (1999, pp. 487-519), Mathematical Thinking and Learning (2000, pp. 269-308), Journal of Mathematical Behavior (2001, 109-144) and the Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education (2002, 221-236). This research is further discussed in chapters that have been written for the International handbook of research in mathematics education [L. English (Ed.), (2002), Lawrence Erlbaum] and The challenge of developing statistical literacy, reasoning and thinking [D. Ben-Zvi & J. Garfield (Eds.), (2004), Kluwer Academic]

Graham has also co-authored several books on the teaching of probability andstatistics at various levels of the educational spectrum: Data, chance and probability (a three-part series for Grades 1 through 8 published by Learning Resources), Algebra, data and probability explorations for the middle school: A graphics calculator approach (Dale Seymour Publications), and Investigating probability and statistics: Using the TI-82 graphics calculator (Addison-Wesley).

He was the first president of the Mathematics Education Research of Australasia (MERGA) and is a life member of that organization. He is a Fellow of the Australian College of Education and the Australian Institute of Management and is also recognized in Whoa (TM)s Who in Australia and Whoa (TM)s Who in America. He has served on the editorial panels of several research journals: Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, Mathematical Thinking and Learning, Mathematics Education Research Journal, and the Mathematics Educator. Grahama (TM)s address is: School of Education and Professional Studies, Griffith University, Gold Coast Campus, PMB 50 Gold Coast Mail Centre, Queensland 9726, Australia.
