Currently there is substantial exchange and communication between academic communities around the world as researchers endeavour to discover why so many children 'fail' at a subject that society deems crucial for future economic survival. This book charts current thinking and trends in teacher education around the world, and looks critically at the inservice education of maths teachers. The contributors explore the processes , practices and issues in teacher education projects in ten countries and these are then discussed and related to current philosophies of teacher education. The book provides an insight into the successes and shortcomings of many different approaches to maths education.

Dieses Buch ist Konrad Krainer gewidmet. Zahlreiche aktuelle Entwicklungen im österreichischen Bildungswesen verdanken seinen Beiträgen entscheidende Anstöße: der Aufbau der Fachdidaktik in Österreich, neue Initiativen im Bereich der Lehrerbildung, die Vernetzung von Schulpraxis, Pädagogischen Hochschulen und Universitäten. Er hat vor bald zwanzig Jahren das IMST-Projekt initiiert, eine der wichtigsten schulischen Innovationen, vor allem im Bereich der Mathematik und der Naturwissenschaften. Er ist bis heute zentraler Impulsgeber und hat früh erkannt, dass für wirksame Reformen ganzheitlich vorgegangen werden muss: die direkte Ansprache der Schulpraktikerinnen und -praktiker ist ebenso wichtig wie organisatorische Rahmenbedingungen zur Unterstützung innovativen Unterrichts und förderliche Strukturen auf der Systemebene. Dieses Buch spiegelt diese Strategie und beschreibt Lernprozesse auf allen drei Ebenen: der Ebene engagierter Personen in Schulpraxis und Bildungsverwaltung, der organisatorischen Ebene, etwa bei der Gestaltung von Netzwerken, und der Ebene regionaler, nationaler und internationaler Systeme.

International Perspectives and Research on Social Justice in Mathematics Education is the highly acclaimed inaugural monograph of The Montana Mathematics Enthusiast now available through IAP. The book covers prescient social, political and ethical issues for the domain of education in general and mathematics education in particular from the perspectives of critical theory, feminist theory and social justice research. The major themes in the book are (1) relevant mathematics, teaching and learning practices for minority and marginalized students in Australia, Brazil, South Africa, Israel, Palestine, and the United States., (2) closing the achievement gap in the U.K, U.S and Iceland across classes, ethnicities and gender, and (3) the political dimensions of mathematics. The fourteen chapters are written by leading researchers in the international community interested and active in research issues of equity and social justice.

Why a book on gender issues in mathematics in the 21st century? Several factors have influenced the undertaking of this project by the editors. First, an international volume focusing on gender and mathematics has not appeared since publication of papers emerging from the 1996 International Congress on Mathematical Education (Keitel, 1998). Surely it was time for an updated look at this critical area of mathematics education. Second, we have had lively discussion and working groups on gender issues at conferences of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education [PME] for the past four years, sessions at which stimulating and groundbreaking research has been discussed by participants from many different countries. Some publication seemed essential to share this new knowledge emerging from a wider variety of countries and from different cultural perspectives. Third, some western countries such as Australia and the USA have experienced in recent years a focus on the “boy problem,” with an underlying assumption that issues of females and mathematics have been solved and are no longer worthy of interest. Thus it seemed timely to look more closely at the issue of gender and mathematics internationally. When the idea for this volume first emerged, invitations were issued to those regularly attending the working and discussion groups at PME. Potential authors were charged to focus on gender issues in mathematics and were given wide scope to hone in on the issues that were central to their own research efforts, or were in receipt or in need of close attention in their own national or regional contexts.

Currently there is a great deal of interest in philosophical issues in the teaching and learning of both mathematics and science education. In this book Ernest has collected together papers from the foremost researchers and practitioners in the philosophy of mathematics education and related areas, together with a selection of papers from the International Congress of Mathematics Education held in Quebec in 1992. Throughout, the outstanding feature of the collection is its multidisciplinary approach to the field of study. This book is the second in Paul Ernest's "Studies in Mathematics Education" series.

This book provides a panorama of complimentary and forward looking perspectives on the learning of mathematics and epistemology from some of the leading contributors to the field. It explores constructivist and social theories of learning, and discusses the role of the computer in the light of these theories. It brings analyses from psychoanalysis, Hermeneutics and other perspectives to bear on the issues of mathematics and learning. It enquires into the nature of enquiry itself, and an important emergent theme is the role of language. Finally it relates the history of mathematics to its teaching and learning. The book both surveys current research and indicates orientations for fruitful work in the future.
