Stanford mathematician and NPR Math Guy Keith Devlin explains why, fun aside, video games are the ideal medium to teach middle-school math. Aimed primarily at teachers and education researchers, but also of interest to game developers who want to produce videogames for mathematics education, Mathematics Education for a New Era: Video Games as a Medium for Learning describes exactly what is involved in designing and producing successful math educational videogames that foster the innovative mathematical thinking skills necessary for success in a global economy.

A History of the 'New Mathematics' Movement and its Relationship with Current Mathematical Reform provides a history of the 'new mathematics' movement of the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s in the United States and relates it to current mathematics curricular reform. The history of the 'new math' education movement is explained in terms of the general curriculum in schools, the mathematics curriculum, the teaching standards, and the pedagogical techniques used. A complete analysis of the history of the 'new math' movement was accomplished by separately investigating major and minor 'new math' projects. In conjunction, the aftermath of the 'new math' movement is explained providing suggestions as to why this movement is often seen as having failed. A short history of reform from the 1970s to the present is provided. Finally, the book compares the 'new mathematics' movement with the current mathematics reform movement led by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

How to make math add up for all students Between the pressure to meet standards and the overwhelming number of different learning needs that students have, planning lessons has become more complex. Many resources help teachers address literacy needs, but few address mathematics. Using research-based and field-tested methodology, this book provides proven approaches to understanding behaviors and creating teaching programs. Key topics include: Strategies for teaching students with autism, ADHD, and various learning disabilities Ways to develop students’ cognitive flexibility How to help learners plan, organize and self-monitor in mathematics class A new focus on mathematical strengths and learning ability rather than on deficits and labels

New Tertiary Mathematics, Volume 2, Part 2: Further Applied Mathematics deals with various topics of theoretical mechanics and probability, from statics and the dynamics of a rigid body to the dynamics of a particle with one and two degrees of freedom. Many examples of varying difficulty are worked in the text and exercises are added after each major topic is covered. This book is comprised of five chapters and opens with a discussion on statics, with particular reference to the analysis of systems of forces in three dimensions, along with virtual work, stability, and the catenary. Complicated equilibrium problems are considered. The reader is then introduced to the dynamics of a particle in one and two dimensions, as well as the implications of the Galilean transformation and the general theorems of motion for a system of particles. These theorems are applied to simple cases of the motion of a rigid body. The final chapter on probability examines normal and Poisson distributions, Markov chains, and miscellaneous problems. This monograph will be a useful resource for mathematical pupils and students engaged in private study.

As dissatisfaction with the current status of school mathematics grows worldwide, educators and professionals alike are calling for reforms and instructional changes. Yet, significant changes can only be achieved if each educator of school mathematics personally rethinks various aspects of mathematics instruction, and identifies concrete ways in which their current practice could be modified. Before such visions can be meaningfully implemented in classrooms, it is important that mathematics teachers and educators examine critically both the assumptions and implications of the vision for school mathematics that the reports propose. This book is intended to support educators in such a challenging enterprise by focusing attention on errors and their use in mathematics instruction. Throughout the book, an approach to errors as opportunities for learning and inquiry will be developed and employed both as a means to create the kinds of instructional experiences advocated for school mathematics reform, and as a heuristic to invite reflections about school mathematics as well as mathematics as a discipline. REVIEWS: ...Raffaella Borasi's newest book offers important contributions to the current debate on school mathematics reform. - Journal for Research in Mathematics Education There are some great bits of philosophy in this book... - Mathematics Teaching

Mathematics education research has blossomed into many different areas, which we can see in the programmes of the ICME conferences, as well as in the various survey articles in the Handbooks. However, all of these lines of research are trying to grapple with the complexity of the same process of learning mathematics. Although our knowledge of the process is through fragmentation of research more extensive and deeper there is a need to overcome this fragmentation and to see learning as one process with different aspects. To overcome this fragmentation, this book identifies six themes: (1) mathematics, culture and society, (2) the structure of mathematics and its influence on the learning process, (3) mathematics learning as a cognitive process, (4) mathematics learning as a social process, (5) affective conditions of the mathematics learning process, (6) new technologies and mathematics learning. This book is addressed to all researchers in mathematic education. It gives an orientation and overview on what is going on and what are the main results and questions what are important books or papers if further information is needed.

All papers have been peer-reviewed. The main goal of this series of conferences is to bring together experts and young talented scientists from Bulgaria and abroad to discuss modern trends and to ensure exchange of views in various applications of mathematics in engineering, physics, economics, biology, etc. Keeping the main topics of the previous AMEE conferences as well as the big success of AMEE'07, this year’s 34th issue was again subject to the motto "Nonlinear phenomena - mathematical theory and environmental reality." The organizing Committee encouraged the participation of senior and postgraduate students and organized a separate youth session. The invited speakers organized two special sessions. Within the 34th Conference AMEE’08 a "Round Table - Presentations and Discussion - on Mathematics Education in Bachelor Degree Programs and in Master Degree Programs," Conference Tutorial "Introduction to Software Agents and Their Applications," and Workshop on Grid and Scientific Engineering Application (GRID&SEA) took place. The publishing, promotion and distribution the proceedings among the mathematical and related societies taking an interest in its topics is an integral part of the Conference.
