The goal of the book is to technologically enhance the preparation of mathematics schoolteachers using an electronic spreadsheet integrated with Maple and Wolfram Alpha — digital tools capable of sophisticated symbolic computations. The content of the book is a combination of mathematical ideas and concepts associated with pre-college problem solving curriculum and their extensions into more advanced mathematical topics. The book provides prospective and practicing teachers with a foundation for developing a deep understanding of many concepts fundamental to the teaching of school mathematics. It also provides the teachers with a technical expertise in designing spreadsheet-based computational environments. Consistent with the current worldwide guidelines for technology-enhanced teacher preparation, the book emphasizes the integration of context, mathematics, and technology as a method for teaching mathematics. Throughout the book, a number of mathematics education documents developed around the world (Australia, Canada, England, Japan, Singapore, United States) are reviewed as appropriate.

The book is written to share ideas stemming from technology-rich K-12 mathematics education courses taught by the author to American and Canadian teacher candidates over the past two decades. It includes examples of problems posed by the teacher candidates using computers. These examples are analyzed through the lenses of the theory proposed in the book.Also, the book includes examples of computer-enabled formulation as well as reformulation of rather advanced problems associated with the pre-digital era problem-solving curriculum. The goal of the problem reformulation is at least two-fold: to make curriculum materials compatible with the modern-day emphasis on democratizing mathematics education and to find the right balance between positive and negative affordances of technology.The book focuses on the use of spreadsheets, Wolfram Alpha, Maple, and The Graphing Calculator (also known as NuCalc) in problem posing. It can be used by pre-service and in-service teachers interested in K-12 mathematics curriculum development in the digital era as well as by those studying mathematics education from a theoretical perspective.

Technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPCK) reflects a new direction in understanding the complex interactions among content, pedagogy, learners and technology that can result in successful integration of multiple technologies in teaching and learning. The purpose of this edited volume is to introduce TPCK as a conceptual framework for grounding research in the area of teachers’ cognitive understanding of the interactions of technology with content, pedagogy and learner conceptions. Accordingly, the contributions will constitute systematic research efforts that use TPCK to develop lines of educational technology research exemplifying current theoretical conceptions of TPCK and methodological and pedagogical approaches of how to develop and assess TPCK.

This book contributes towards the literature in the field of mathematics education, specifically on aspects of empowering learners of mathematics. The book, comprising eighteen chapters, written by renowned researchers in mathematics education, provides readers with approaches and applicable classroom strategies to empower learners of mathematics. The chapters in the book can be classified into four sections. The four sections focus on how learners could be empowered in their learning, cognitive and affective processes, through mathematical content, purposefully designed mathematical tasks, whilst developing 21st century competencies. Contents: Empowering Mathematics Learners (Berinderjeet Kaur & Lee Ngan Hoe)Empowering Learning in an Algebra Class: The Case of Expansion and Factorisation (Chua Boon Liang)Facilitating Students' Mathematical Noticing (Tan Liang Soon & Hang Kim Hoo)Empowering Junior College Students through the Educational Use of Graphics Calculators (Barry Kissane)Understanding Future Teachers' Mathematical Knowing to Overcome Double Discontinuities (Hyungmi Cho & Oh Nam Kwon)Developing Student Voice in the Mathematics Classroom (Glenda Anthony & Roberta Hunter)Empowering Mathematics Learners through Effective Memory Strategies (Wong Khoon Yoong)Empower Primary School Pupils to Use Representations to Solve Process Problems (Yeo Kai Kow Joseph)Empowering Mathematics Learners with Metacognitive Strategies in Problem Solving (Loh Mei Yoke & Lee Ngan Hoe)Mathematical Problem Solving: An Approach to Empowering Students in the Mathematics Classroom (Toh Tin Lam)Empowering Mathematics Learners through Exploratory Tasks (Ariyadi Wijaya)Use of Open and Guided Investigative Tasks to Empower Mathematics Learners (Joseph B W Yeo)Using Representations to Develop Mathematical Thinking (Palanisamy K Veloo & Parmjit Singh)Empowering Teachers to Use Open-Ended Real-World Tasks in Primary Mathematics Classrooms (Ng Kit Ee Dawn)ACISK Framework — A Tool for Empowering Mathematics Learners to be Self-Directed (Wong Lai Fong & Berinderjeet Kaur)Empowering Students through Inquiry (Steve Thornton)Developing Self-Regulated Learners in the Primary Mathematics Classroom (Cheng Lu Pien & Teong Ying Xi Theodora)Empowering Students' Learning through Mathematical Modelling (Chun Ming Eric Chan, Rashidah Vapumarican, Kaiwen Vanessa Oh, Huanjia Tracey Liu & Yew Hwee Seah) Readership: Graduate students, researchers, practitioners and teachers in mathematics.

National Numeracy Strategy (NNS) for Key Stage 3 will be introduced into Secondary Schools in September 2001. The NNS document: Framework for Teaching Mathematics in Years 7 to 9, is based on the National Curriculum, but offers a very different interpretation of some of the expected learning outcomes for year 7 to 9. This practical book, interprets and explains the document for busy practitioners, spells out the expectations of the framework and offers guidance on how to fulfil these, describes and explains the types of teaching methods for maximising students' learning, and includes many practical ideas for classroom activities within the framework of the NNS.
