Towards gender equity in mathematics education : an ICMI study by
G Hanna(
Book
)
11 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The present volume consists of original scholarly articles that develop further issues pertaining to gender equity in mathematics education. The premise  that there is no physical or intellectual barrier to the participation of women in mathematics, science, and technology  provides the starting point for analyses and discussion. The authors explore the attitudinal and societal/structural reasons for the gender imbalance in these fields and look at foci for change, including curriculum and assessment practices, classroom and school cultures, and teacher education programs. A major part of the book comprises a series of detailed descriptive studies of education systems across the world from the perspective of mathematics and gender equity issues

Cases of assessment in mathematics education by
Mogens Niss(
Book
)
10 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is one of the first to present a variety of carefully selected cases to describe and analyze in depth and considerable detail assessment in mathematics education in various interesting places in the world. The book is based on work presented at an invited international ICMI seminar and includes contributions from first rate scholars from Europe, North America, the Caribbean, Asia and Oceania, and the Middle East. The cases presented range from thorough reviews of the state of assessment in mathematics education in selected countries, each possessing `archetypical' characteristics of assessment, to innovative or experimental small or large scale assessment initiatives. All the cases presented have been implemented in actual practice. The book will be particularly stimulating reading for mathematics educators  at all levels  who are concerned with the innovation of assessment modes in mathematics education, as well as everybody working in the field of mathematics education: in research and development, in curriculum planning, assessment institutions and agencies, mathematics specialists in ministries, teacher trainers, textbook authors, frontline teachers

Modelling and applications in mathematics education : the 14th ICMI study by
W Blum(
Book
)
8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The overall goal of Modelling and Applications in Mathematics Education is to provide a comprehensive overview of the stateoftheart in the field of modelling and applications in mathematics education. Key issues are dealt with, among which are the following: Epistemology and the relationships between mathematics and the "rest of the world"; the meaning of mathematical modelling and its process components; the respect in which the distinction between pure mathematics and applications of mathematics make sense Authenticity and Goals dealing with modelling and applications in mathematics teaching; appropriate balance between modelling activities and other mathematical activities; the role that authentic problem situations play in modelling and applications activities Modelling Competencies: characterizing how a student's modelling competency can be characterized; identifiable subcompetencies, and the ways they constitute a general modelling competency; developing competency over time Mathematical Competencies: identifying the most important mathematical competencies that students should acquire, and how modelling and applications activities can contribute toward building up these competencies; the meaning of "Mathematical Literacy" in relation to modelling Modelling Pedagogy: appropriate pedagogical principles and strategies for the development of modelling courses and their teaching; the role of technology in the teaching of modelling and applications Implementation and Practice: the role of modelling and applications in everyday mathematics teaching; major impediments and obstacles; advancing the use of modelling examples in everyday classrooms; documenting successful implementation of modelling in mathematics teaching Assessment and Evaluation: assessment modes that capture the essential components of modelling competency; modes available for modelling and applications courses and curricula; appropriate strategies to implement new assessment and evaluation modes in practice The contributing authors are eminent members of the mathematics education community. Modelling and Applications in Mathematics Education will be of special interest to mathematics educators, teacher educators, researchers, education administrators, curriculum developers and student teachers

The professional education and development of teachers of mathematics : the 15th ICMI study by
Bernard R Hodgson(
Book
)
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The premise of the 15th ICMI Study is that teachers are key to students' opportunities to learn mathematics. What teachers of mathematics know, care about, and do is a product of their experiences and socialization, together with the impact of their professional education. The Professional Education and Development of Teachers of Mathematics assembles important new international work development, research, theory and practice  concerning the professional education of teachers of mathematics. As it examines critical areas to reveal what is known and what significant questions and problems war

Challenging mathematics in and beyond the classroom : the 16th ICMI study by
Edward Barbeau(
Book
)
7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The last two decades have seen significant innovation both in classroom teaching and in the public presentation of mathematics. Much of this has centered on the use of games, puzzles and investigations designed to capture interest, challenge the intellect and encourage a more robust understanding of mathematical ideas and processes. ICMI Study 16 was commissioned to review these developments and describe experiences around the globe in different contexts, systematize the area, examine the effectiveness of the use of challenges and set the stage for future study and development. A prestigious group of international researchers, with collective experience with national and international contests, classroom and general contests and in finding a place for mathematics in the public arena, contributed to this effort. The result, Challenging Mathematics In and Beyond the Classroom, deals with challenges for both gifted as regular students, and with building public interest in appreciation of mathematics

Proof and proving in mathematics education : the 19th ICMI study by
G Hanna(
Book
)
6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the most significant tasks facing mathematics educators is to understand the role of mathematical reasoning and proving in mathematics teaching, so that its presence in instruction can be enhanced. This challenge has been given even greater importance by the assignment to proof of a more prominent place in the mathematics curriculum at all levels. Along with this renewed emphasis, there has been an upsurge in research on the teaching and learning of proof at all grade levels, leading to a reexamination of the role of proof in the curriculum and of its relation to other forms of explanation, illustration and justification. This book, resulting from the 19th ICMI Study, brings together a variety of viewpoints on issues such as: The potential role of reasoning and proof in deepening mathematical understanding in the classroom as it does in mathematical practice. The developmental nature of mathematical reasoning and proof in teaching and learning from the earliest grades. The development of suitable curriculum materials and teacher education programs to support the teaching of proof and proving. The book considers proof and proving as complex but foundational in mathematics. Through the systematic examination of recent research this volume offers new ideas aimed at enhancing the place of proof and proving in our classrooms
