I am a mathematics educator. Algebraic thinking, use and misuse of examples, students’ understanding of proofs, and phenomenographical analyses of students’ understanding of mathematical concepts have been at the heart of my quest for knowledge. As a former student of David Tall, I am an academic grandson of Michael Atiyah. David, when writing about his journey in mathematics education, wrote: "Amir Asghari produced a highly personal Lakotos-style thesis in which he challenged not only my work in textbooks with Ian Stewart ... but also analysed that of the Greeks, Gauss, Russell to point out subtle flaws in the theories of Dienes and Skemp."
