Critical Issues in Mathematics Education presents the significant contributions of Professor Alan Bishop within the mathematics education research community. Six critical issues, each of which have had paramount importance in the development of mathematics education research, are reviewed and include a discussion of current developments in each area. Teacher decision making, spatial/visualizing geometry, teachers and research, cultural/social aspects of mathematics education, sociopolitical issues, and values serve as the basic issues discussed in this examination of mathematics education over the last fifty years during which Professor Bishop has been active in the field. A comprehensive discussion of each of these topics is realized by offering the reader a classic research contribution of Professor Bishop’s together with commentary and invited chapters from leading experts in the field of mathematics education. Critical Issues in Mathematics Education will make an invaluable contribution to the ongoing reflection of mathematic education researchers worldwide, but also to policy makers and teacher educators who wish to understand some of the key issues with which mathematics education has been and still is concerned, and the context within which Professor Bishop’s key contributions to these research issues were made.

Chemists, working with only mortars and pestles, could not get very far unless they had mathematical models to explain what was happening "inside" of their elements of experience -- an example of what could be termed mathematical learning. This volume contains the proceedings of Work Group 4: Theories of Mathematics, a subgroup of the Seventh International Congress on Mathematical Education held at Université Laval in Québec. Bringing together multiple perspectives on mathematical thinking, this volume presents elaborations on principles reflecting the progress made in the field over the past 20 years and represents starting points for understanding mathematical learning today. This volume will be of importance to educational researchers, math educators, graduate students of mathematical learning, and anyone interested in the enterprise of improving mathematical learning worldwide.

Parents want to be supportive of math education. But they often feel frustration when they don't recognize the kind of instruction their children are getting and can't help them at home. The best way to guide parents toward an understanding of how their kids are learning is by engaging them in the very same mathematics students are experiencing at school. With the Supporting School Mathematicsseries, you'll find six comprehensive workshop modules for effectively engaging with parents or any stakeholder in mathematics education. Helping with Math at Home: More Ideas for Parents is designed to help parents understand the importance of teaching for conceptual understanding, and that math facts can and should be practiced within engaging mathematical contexts. Parents experience games that they are encouraged to take home and play as a family. The session focuses on parents' roles in helping children build productive dispositions toward mathematics. By design, the session follows Helping with Math at Home: More Ideas for Parents, but it can also be done as a stand-alone session. The content of the session is appropriate for parents, teachers, and students of grades 4 - 8. Each of the six sessions of Supporting School Mathematicseach use explicit, thorough, hands-on examples to illustrate how key aspects of your math curriculum work. Parents will come to understand: what it means to teach for understanding and how meaningful, challenging, and engaging this type of learning is why and how the focus of instruction is different than traditional mathematics teaching how basic facts are both explicitly and implicitly addressed how to extend to home what students learn at school. Each Supporting School Mathematicspackage includes everything you need to conduct a successful parent workshop: a planning handbook that offers general advice on presenting mathematical content and even provides you a Q-and-A section featuring the questions you are most likely to get and good answers to them a module that includes scripts, content-specific talking points, overheads, and handouts that help audience members understand how their children are learning and discover new ways of helping them at home a CD that contains ready-to-print files for the overheads as well as printable versions of the handouts in both English and Spanish.The six workshops in the Supporting School Mathematicsseries help you demonstrate for parents the most important aspects of any mathematics curriculum: Helping with Math at Home: Ideas for Parents Helping with Math at Home: More Ideas for Parents Understanding Addition and Subtraction Across the Grades Understanding Multiplication Across the Grades Understanding Fractions Across the Grades Encouraging Mathematical Thinkers: The Basics and More Gain parents' support by using Supporting School Mathematicsto introduce them to high-quality, student-centered mathematics instruction. It's an easy, new way to change how they think about their children's math education.System Requirements for CD-ROMWindows/PC Pentium Processor 450Mhz (or higher)> Windows 98 (or higher) 64 MB RAM (more recommended) SVGA Color Display (or better) 8X CD-ROM Drive (or faster) Acrobat ReaderMac PowerPC Processor G3/333Mhz (or higher) System 8.6 (or higher) 64 MB RAM (more recommended) SVGA Color Display (or better) 8X CD-ROM

This book is the result of a unique experience: a research mathematician teaching in an elementary school. It tells about a fascinating discovery made by the author — that elementary mathematics has a lot of depth and beauty, and that the secret to its teaching is in understanding its deep points.The first part of the book discusses the nature of mathematics and its beauty. The second part tells about the teaching principles the author distilled from his experience. The third part is an excursion through the arithmetic studied in elementary school, accompanied by personal stories, historical anecdotes and teaching suggestions. The appendix relates the fascinating story of modern day politics of mathematical education.The book was a bestseller in Israel, and has been translated into many languages. The extraordinary combination of mathematical and didactic insights makes it an essential guide for parents and teachers alike.

Results from national and international assessments indicate that school children in the United States are not learning mathematics well enough. Many students cannot correctly apply computational algorithms to solve problems. Their understanding and use of decimals and fractions are especially weak. Indeed, helping all children succeed in mathematics is an imperative national goal. However, for our youth to succeed, we need to change how we’re teaching this discipline. Helping Children Learn Mathematics provides comprehensive and reliable information that will guide efforts to improve school mathematics from pre--kindergarten through eighth grade. The authors explain the five strands of mathematical proficiency and discuss the major changes that need to be made in mathematics instruction, instructional materials, assessments, teacher education, and the broader educational system and answers some of the frequently asked questions when it comes to mathematics instruction. The book concludes by providing recommended actions for parents and caregivers, teachers, administrators, and policy makers, stressing the importance that everyone work together to ensure a mathematically literate society.
