This sixth volume, in the series of yearbooks by the Association of Mathematics Educators in Singapore, entitled Learning Experiences to Promote Mathematics Learning is unique in that it focuses on a single theme in mathematics education. The objective is for teachers and researchers to advance the learning of mathematics through meaningful experiences. Several renowned international and Singapore scholars have published their work in this volume. The fourteen chapters of the book illustrate evidence-based practices that school teachers and researchers can experiment with in their own classrooms to bring about meaningful learning outcomes. Three broad themes, namely fundamentals for active and motivated learning, learning experiences for developing mathematical processes, and use of ICT tools for learning through visualizations, simulations and representations, shape the ideas in these chapters. The book makes a significant contribution towards the learning of mathematics. It is a good resource for mathematics teachers, educators and research students.
