ab: Publisherâ€™s description: The methods for teaching mathematics usually
follow the structure of mathematics. The problem with this is that the
structure of mathematics took centuries of elaboration to develop and
is not the same as how one originally experiences mathematics. Based on
research of how mathematics is actually learned, this book presents an
innovative approach for teaching mathematics that will engage pupils
and can have lifelong benefits for how they take on board more advanced
mathematical topics. This book makes use of the realistic mathematics
education (RME) philosophy, which bridges the gap between informal
mathematics learning (such as in day-to-day life) and more formal
teaching in school. Many real-life situations as examples for learning
are included, as well as different mathematical and logic puzzles that
will stimulate learning and foster understanding. The ideas presented
are not confined to one national curriculum and so can be helpful
worldwide to teachers/instructors (both in practice and those still in
training), private tutors, homeschooling parents, and educational
researchers.
