Middle Grade Teachers' Mathematical Knowledge and Its Relationship to Instruction
Middle Grade Teachers' Mathematical Knowledge and Its Relationship to Instruction (July 1998)
A Research Monograph
Judith Sowder - Author
Randolph A. Philipp - Author
Barbara E. Armstrong - Author
Bonnie P. Schappelle - Author

Investigates how middle grade teachers' deeper understanding of the mathematics of number, quantity, and proportion influences the way they teach and the way students learn.

The outcome of a two-year investigation, this book shows how teachers' understanding of the mathematics of number, quantity, and proportion influences how they teach and what their students learn of the concepts, skills, and reasoning associated wit...(Read More)
 
 
Social Constructivism as a Philosophy of Mathematics
Social Constructivism as a Philosophy of Mathematics (November 1997)
Paul Ernest - Author

Extends the ideas of social constructivism to the philosophy of mathematics, developing a powerful critique of traditional absolutist conceptions of mathematics, and proposing a reconceptualization of the philosophy of mathematics.

Proposing social constructivism as a novel philosophy of mathematics, this book is inspired by current work in sociology of knowledge and social studies of science. It extends the ideas of soc...(Read More)
 
 
Ethnomathematics
Ethnomathematics (April 1997)
Challenging Eurocentrism in Mathematics Education
Arthur B. Powell - Editor
Marilyn Frankenstein - Editor

Presents the emerging field of ethnomathematics from a critical perspective, challenging particular ways in which Eurocentrism permeates mathematics education and mathematics in general.

This collection brings together classic, previously published articles and new research to present the emerging field of ethnomathematics from a critical perspective, challenging particular ways in which Eurocentrism permeates mathemati...(Read More)
 
 
Providing a Foundation for Teaching Mathematics in the Middle Grades
Providing a Foundation for Teaching Mathematics in the Middle Grades (August 1995)
Judith Sowder - Editor
Bonnie P. Schappelle - Editor

This book provides middle school teachers with a firm pedagogical foundation based on the manner in which students learn the mathematics being taught.
This book is written primarily for middle grade teachers who are discovering that they now want to teach in ways that create positive mathematical learning environments and instigate rich classroom discourse. Many of these teachers are finding that their mathematical preparation did not ad...(Read More)
 
 
Reform in School Mathematics and Authentic Assessment
Reform in School Mathematics and Authentic Assessment (March 1995)
Thomas A. Romberg - Editor

"This book addresses a key issue in mathematics education today. The perspective from which this text is written is one that is needed as a response to the occurring reform in mathematics education and the movement to understand learning and doing mathematics as social construction. How to align this newer conceptualization with testing procedures is an issue that is often raised in the circles in which I am active. I especially like the emphasis on...(Read More)
 
 
The Development of Multiplicative Reasoning in the Learning of Mathematics
The Development of Multiplicative Reasoning in the Learning of Mathematics (June 1994)
Guershon Harel - Editor
Jere Confrey - Editor

“An excellent state-of-the-art sourcebook.” — Anna O. Graeber, University of Maryland, College Park
Two of the most important concepts children develop progressively throughout their mathematics education years are additivity and multiplicativity. Additivity is associated with situations that involve adding, joining, affixing, subtracting, separating and removing. Multiplicativity is associated with situations that involve duplicating, shrinkin...(Read More)
 
 
Mathematics Assessment and Evaluation
Mathematics Assessment and Evaluation (July 1992)
Imperatives for Mathematics Educators
Thomas A. Romberg - Editor

Are current testing practices consistent with the goals of the reform movement in school mathematics? If not, what are the alternatives? How can authentic performance in mathematics be assessed?

These and similar questions about tests and their uses have forced those advocating change to examine the way in which mathematical performance data is gathered and used in American schools. This book provides recent views on the issues surrounding...(Read More)
 
 
Integrating Research on Teaching and Learning Mathematics
Integrating Research on Teaching and Learning Mathematics (August 1991)
Elizabeth Fennema - Editor
Thomas P. Carpenter - Editor
Susan J. Lamon - Editor

During the last decade there were significant advances in the study of students' learning and problem solving in mathematics, and in the study of classroom instruction. Because these two research programs usually have been conducted individually, it is generally agreed now that there is an increasing need for an integrated research program. This book represents initial discussions and development of a unified paradigm for studying teaching in math...(Read More)
