This volume emerges from a partnership between the American Federation of Teachers and the Learning Research and Development Center at the University of Pittsburgh. The partnership brought together researchers and expert teachers for intensive dialogue sessions focusing on what each community knows about effective mathematical learning and instruction. The chapters deal with the research on, and conceptual analysis of, specific arithmetic topics (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, decimals, and fractions) or with overarching themes that pervade the early curriculum and constitute the links with the more advanced topics of mathematics (intuition, number sense, and estimation). Serving as a link between the communities of cognitive researchers and mathematics educators, the book capitalizes on the recent research successes of cognitive science and reviews the literature of the math education community as well.

This book addresses the particular areas of mathematics within the primary curriculum that teachers find difficult to teach and in which children struggle to achieve.. .It begins with introductory sections on how children learn mathematics and is then organised on a subject area basis, dealing with the teaching of particular maths topics. Key topics addressed include rounding and measuring, means and medians, fractions, negative numbers, commutative and associative laws in number operations, and shape and space. .Within each chapter, the authors examine the themes of representing, reasoning and communicating, drawing out both the subject knowledge and ways of teaching each topic. A reference section for studies drawn upon is provided at the end of each chapter.....

In this reader, maths teachers in the early years of their careers will find a concise yet comprehensive guide to developments in mathematics teaching in secondary schools and the controversies which currently surround it. After a brief summary of the historical context, a series of short articles provides a range of perspectives on various issues of current debate which will help new teachers in the development of their own teaching styles. These include the impact of computers and calculators in maths teaching, the various arguments about the use of published schemes and for more investigational approaches to the curriculum, and the way in which social and cultural factors can be approached through the teaching of various topics in mathematics. The final section looks at how teachers might continue their professional development through action research in their own classrooms.

The audience remains much the same as for the 1992 Handbook, namely, mathematics education researchers and other scholars conducting work in mathematics education. This group includes college and university faculty, graduate students, investigators in research and development centers, and staff members at federal, state, and local agencies that conduct and use research within the discipline of mathematics. The intent of the authors of this volume is to provide useful perspectives as well as pertinent information for conducting investigations that are informed by previous work. The Handbook should also be a useful textbook for graduate research seminars. In addition to the audience mentioned above, the present Handbook contains chapters that should be relevant to four other groups: teacher educators, curriculum developers, state and national policy makers, and test developers and others involved with assessment. Taken as a whole, the chapters reflects the mathematics education research community's willingness to accept the challenge of helping the public understand what mathematics education research is all about and what the relevance of their research fi ndings might be for those outside their immediate community.
