Sure, there are more sophisticated ideas out there; there exist subgenres of domain-specific research (especially for math and physics education);

Would you have references for good sources on math education?

I don't, unfortunately. If I were looking for something similar to How Learning Works, I might start with a few books like (1, 2, 3) if I could find them in a library or elsewhere to skim. You might also have better luck than I did looking for useful edited volumes/handbooks and review papers. There seems to be a lot of navel-gazing in the math education research community; you might even be better off just reading PĆ³lya.

If anyone has a good answer to this question, I'm also very interested.

I am also interested in those exact two fields.
