ab: Publisher’s description: The first sourcebook on Nordic research in
mathematics education: Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Denmark and
contributions from Finland provides the first comprehensive and unified
treatment of historical and contemporary research trends in mathematics
education in the Nordic world. The book is organized in sections
co-ordinated by active researchers in mathematics education in Norway,
Sweden, Iceland, Denmark, and Finland. The purpose of this sourcebook
is to synthesize and survey the established body of research in these
countries with findings that have influenced ongoing research agendas,
informed practice, framed curricula and policy. The sections for each
country also include historical articles in addition to exemplary
examples of recently conducted research oriented towards the future.
The book will serve as a standard reference for mathematics education
researchers, policy makers, practitioners and students both in and
outside the Nordic countries. This Sourcebook includes over 50 chapters
from the Nordic world. Contents of this book include: Section I:
Norwegian research in mathematics education (section editor: Simon
Goodchild): (1) Introduction to the Norwegian part of the Sourcebook of
Nordic research in mathematics education (Simon Goodchild); (2) The
development of mathematics education as a research field in Norway ‒
an insider’s personal reflections (Trygve Breiteig and Simon
Goodchild); Section II: Swedish research in mathematics education
(section editor: Christer Bergsten): (4) Mathematics education research
in Sweden ‒ An introduction (Christer Bergsten); (5) Some theoretical
orientations of Swedish research: Learning difficulties and
mathematical reasoning (Johan Lithner and Torulf Palm); Section III:
Icelandic research in mathematics education (section editors: Gudbjorg
Palsdottir and Bharath Sriraman): (6) Mathematics education in Iceland:
explaining the non-homogeneity in a homogenous system (Gudny Helga
Gunnarsdottir, Gudbjorg Palsdottir, and Bharath Sriraman); (7) The
history of public education in mathematics in Iceland and its relations
to secondary education (Kristin Bjarnadottir); Section IV: Danish
research in mathematics education (section editors: Bettina Dahl and
Bharath Sriraman); and Section V: Contributions from Finland (section
