The professional education and development of teachers of mathematics : the 15th ICMI study by
Bernard R Hodgson(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 94 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 warrant collective attention, the volume also contributes to the strengthening of the international community of mathematics educators. Preparing and maintaining a highquality, professional teaching force that can teach mathematics effectively and prepare youth for a future of social responsibility is a worldwide challenge. As such, systems of teacher education, both initial and continuing, are essential to the success of mathematics educators and their students. More international exchange of knowledge and information about the professional development would certainly benefit both groups, and this volume seeks to address the need. The Professional Education and Development of Teachers of Mathematics offers a crosscultural conversation about mathematics teacher education in mathematics around the world with attention given to research, theory, practice and policy

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 83 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
)
5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 54 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
