The four sections in this Third International Handbook are concerned with: (a) social, political and cultural dimensions in mathematics education; (b) mathematics education as a field of study; (c) technology in the mathematics curriculum; and (d) international perspectives on mathematics education. These themes are taken up by 84 internationally-recognized scholars, based in 26 different nations. Each of section is structured on the basis of past, present and future aspects. The first chapter in a section provides historical perspectives (“How did we get to where we are now?”); the middle chapters in a section analyze present-day key issues and themes (“Where are we now, and what recent events have been especially significant?”); and the final chapter in a section reflects on policy matters (“Where are we going, and what should we do?”). Readership: Teachers, mathematics educators, ed.policy makers, mathematicians, graduate students, undergraduate students. Large set of authoritative, international authors.​

Wie wird international und in der Schweiz Mathematik unterrichtet? Welche Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede zeigen sich? Zeichnen sich Mathematikstunden aus Ländern, deren Schülerinnen und Schüler in Leistungstests besonders gut abschneiden, durch besondere Gestaltungs- und Qualitätsmerkmale aus? Was lässt sich über Merkmale guter Unterrichtsqualität aus der Perspektive von Schülerinnen und Schülern, Lehrpersonen und aussenstehenden Experten aussagen? Wie wirken sich didaktische Gestaltungsmerkmale, Lernmotivation und Selbstvertrauen auf Fachinteresse, Engagement und Leistungen aus? Antworten auf diese und weitere Fragen suchten zwei Videostudien, deren Ergebnisse in diesem Band vorgestellt werden: Im Rahmen der internationalen „TIMSS 1999 Video Study“, an der sich auch die Schweiz beteiligt hat, wurden je 100 videografierte Mathematikstunden des 8. Schuljahrs aus sieben Ländern systematisch analysiert. Darüber hinaus wurde in der mehrsprachigen Schweiz eine erweiterte Videostudie durchgeführt, welche auf der Basis eines mehrperspektivischen Zugangs sowohl Innen- und Aussensichten als auch Bedingungen und Wirkungen des Mathematikunterrichts untersuchte. Nach einem Überblick über die teilweise überraschenden Befunde der internationalen Videostudie werden im Hauptteil des Buches die Ergebnisse der schweizerischen Videostudie erstmals im Gesamtzusammenhang dargestellt. Videostudien setzen dort an, wo die periodisch durchgeführten internationalen Schulleistungsstudien aufhören. Während TIMSS und PISA wertvolle Erkenntnisse und Trends zu den Ergebnissen nationaler Bildungssysteme liefern, machen sie keine Aussagen über die Qualität der Bildungsprozesse, insbesondere des Unterrichts. Im Hinblick auf die Schulentwicklung und die Lehrerbildung sind jedoch Daten über den Unterrichtsprozess, über seine Gestaltungs- und Qualitätsmerkmale sowie über seine Wirkungen von grosser Wichtigkeit. Dies zumal wir wissen, dass der Professionalität von Lehrerhandeln und Unterricht eine zentrale Bedeutung für den Lernerfolg von Kindern zukommt.

ALAN 1. BISHOP The first International Handbook on Mathematics Education was published by Kluwer Academic Publishers in 1996. However, most of the writing for that handbook was done in 1995 and generally reflected the main research and development foci prior to 1994. There were four sections, 36 chapters, and some 150 people contributed to the final volume either as author, reviewer, editor, or critical friend. The task was a monumental one, attempting to cover the major research and practice developments in the international field of mathematics education as it appeared to the contributors in 1995. Inevitably there were certain omissions, some developments were only starting to emerge, and some literatures were only sketchy and speculative. However that Handbook has had to be reprinted three times, so it clearly fulfilled a need and I personally hope that it lived up to what I wrote in its Introduction: The Handbook thus attempts not merely to present a description of the international 'state-of-the-field', but also to offer synthetic and reflective overviews on the different directions being taken by the field, on the gaps existing in our present knowledge, on the current problems being faced, and on the future possibilities for development. (Bishop et aI. , 1996) Since that time there has been even more activity in our field, and now seems a good time to take stock again, to reflect on what has happened since 1995, and to create a second Handbook with the same overall goals.

This volume--the first to bring together research on sociocultural aspects of mathematics education--presents contemporary and international perspectives on social justice and equity issues that impact mathematics education. In particular, it highlights the importance of three interacting and powerful factors--gender, social, and cultural dimensions. Sociocultural Research on Mathematics Education: An International Perspective is distinguished in several ways: * It is research based. Chapters report on significant research projects; present a comprehensive and critical summary of the research findings; and offer a critical discussion of research methods and theoretical perspectives undertaken in the area. * It is future oriented, presenting recommendations for practice and policy and identifying areas for further research. * It deals with all aspects of formal and informal mathematics education and applications and all levels of formal schooling. As the context of mathematics education rapidly changes-- with an increased demand for mathematically literate citizenship; an increased awareness of issues of equity, inclusivity, and accountability; and increased efforts for globalization of curriculum development and research-- questions are being raised more than ever before about the problems of teaching and learning mathematics from a non-cognitive science perspective. This book contributes significantly to addressing such issues and answering such questions. It is especially relevant for researchers, graduate students, and policymakers in the field of mathematics education.

ALAN J. BISHOP Monash University, Clayton, Victoria, Australia RATIONALE Mathematics Education is becoming a well-documented field with many books, journals and international conferences focusing on a variety of aspects relating to theory, research and practice. That documentation also reflects the fact that the field has expanded enormously in the last twenty years. At the 8th International Congress on Mathematics Education (ICME) in Seville, Spain, for example, there were 26 specialist Working Groups and 26 special ist Topic Groups, as well as a host of other group activities. In 1950 the 'Commission Internationale pour I 'Etude et l' Amelioration de l'Enseignement des Mathematiques' (CIEAEM) was formed and twenty years ago another active group, the 'International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education' (PME), began at the third ICME at Karlsruhe in 1976. Since then several other specialist groups have been formed, and are also active through regular conferences and publications, as documented in Edward Jacobsen's Chapter 34 in this volume.

Big ideas in the mathematics curriculum for older school students, especially those that are hard to learn and hard to teach, are covered in this book. It will be a first port of call for research about teaching big ideas for students from 9-19 and also has implications for a wider range of students. These are the ideas that really matter, that students get stuck on, and that can be obstacles to future learning. It shows how students learn, why they sometimes get things wrong, and the strengths and pitfalls of various teaching approaches. Contemporary high-profile topics like modelling are included. The authors are experienced teachers, researchers and mathematics educators, and many teachers and researchers have been involved in the thinking behind this book, funded by the Nuffield Foundation. An associated website, hosted by the Nuffield Foundation, summarises the key messages in the book and connects them to examples of classroom tasks that address important learning issues about particular mathematical ideas.
