ab: This book has two primary goals: On the level of theory development, the
book clarifies the nature of an emerging "models and modeling
perspective" about teaching, learning, and problem solving in
mathematics and science education. On the level of emphasizing
practical problems, it clarifies the nature of some of the most
important elementary-but-powerful mathematical understandings that
Americans are likely to need as foundations for success in the present
and future technology-based information age. The relevant chapters of
this book are reviewed individually in ZDM/MATHDI. Supplements to the
chapters with digital resources, transcripts and other samples of
studentsâ€™ work, as well as research tools can be found at:
