ab: This book brings together a number of key, and sometimes controversial,
issues in mathematics education. It focuses in particular upon the
social context of teaching mathematics and its impact upon teachers and
students with diverse social and cultural backgrounds. The issues
covered include: the role played by mathematics textbooks; the English
National numeracy strategy; incorporating ICT; international
comparisons of mathematical attainment; the values adopted, implicitly
and explicitly in mathematics teaching; how to use - and not to use -
classroom resources. All chapters, which are reviewed individually in
ZDM/MATHDI, benefit from being informed by current state-of-the-art
research in mathematics education and each of the contributors has an
international reputation in her or his field.
