ab: Summary: Mathematics classroom instruction, often seen as a key
contributing factor to studentsâ€™ learning, has remained virtually
unchanged for the past several decades. Efforts to improve the quality
of mathematics education have led to multiple approaches and research
that target different contributing factors but lack a systematic
account of diverse approaches and practices for improving mathematics
instruction. This book is thus designed to survey, synthesize, and
extend current research on specific approaches and practices that are
developed and used in different education systems for transforming
mathematics instruction. In this introduction chapter, we highlight the
background of this book project, its purposes, and what can be learned
from reading this book.
