ab: Publisherâ€™s description: This book provides a fundamental reassessment of
mathematics education in the digital era. It constitutes a new mindset
of how information and knowledge are processed by introducing new
interconnective and interactive pedagogical approaches. Math education
is catching up on technology, as courses and materials use digital
sources and resources more and more. The time has come to evaluate this
new dynamic, which transcends all previous use of ancillary devices to
supplement classroom math instruction. Interactivity and
interconnectivity with the online world of math and math texts (such as
television programs and internet sites) can be integrated with our
traditional modes for delivery of math instruction. This book looks at
how this integration can unfold practically by applying these relevant
pedagogical principles to elementary topics such as numeration,
arithmetic, algebra, story problems, combinatorics, and basic
probability theory. The book further exemplifies how mathematics can be
connected to topics in popular culture, information technologies, and
other such domains.
