Mathematical flexibility is increasingly recognized as an important construct of interest for both researchers and practitioners in mathematics education. Flexibility can be characterized as a learner’s willingness to change strategies based on particular problem-solving conditions or goals. In this talk, I begin by providing an introduction to flexibility. I then explore different ways that flexibility has been assessed in the research literature, highlighting successes and challenges in the various forms of assessment. I then present recent empirical results on flexibility, and I conclude by suggesting some promising areas for future research on flexibility.
