Explanation of the Post

We are increasingly seeing the role that social networks play in the field of mathematics. For example, researchers found that citizens published posts about didactic resources for mathematics on Reddit, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, these posts either include some reference to scientific research or claim to be based on scientific research (Valls-Carol, 2021). Some mathematics teachers seek resources on Pinterest to implement in their classrooms (Knake, 2021). A study conducted in Zambia shows that some pre-service mathematics teachers use social media in their mathematics classrooms both for learning and teaching (Mulenga, 2020).
