Mathematical reflections : in a room with many mirrors by
Peter Hilton(
Book
)
20 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and Italian and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this book is to show what mathematics is about, how it is done, and what it is good for. The relaxed and informal presentation conveys the joy of mathematical discovery and insight and makes it clear that mathematics can be an exciting and engrossing activity. Frequent questions lead the reader to see mathematics as an accessible world of thought, where understanding can turn opaque formulae into beautiful and meaningful ideas. Presenting many recent discoveries that lead to interesting open questions, the book can serve as the main text in courses dealing with contemporary mathematical topics (for mathematics students or for prospective or inservice mathematics teachers) or as enrichment for other courses. It can also be read with pleasure on its own by anyone interested in the intellectually intriguing aspects of mathematics

Mathematical vistas : from a room with many windows by
Peter Hilton(
Book
)
14 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The goal of Mathematical Vistas is to stimulate the interest of bright people in mathematics. The book consists of nine related mathematical essays which will intrigue and inform the curious reader. In order to offer a broad spectrum of exciting developments in mathematics, topics are treated at different levels of depth and thoroughness. Some chapters can be understood completely with little background, others can be thought of as appetizers for further study. A number of BREAKS are included in each chapter. These are problems designed to test the reader's understanding of the material thus far in the chapter. This book is a sequel to the authors's popular book "Mathematical Reflections" and can be read independently

The teaching and learning of mathematics at university level : an ICMI study by
Derek Allan Holton(
Book
)
24 editions published between 1899 and 2010 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book arose from the ICMI Study into the teaching and learning of mathematics at university level that began with a conference in Singapore in 1998. The book looks at tertiary mathematics and its teaching from a number of aspects including practice, research, mathematics and other disciplines, technology, assessment, and teacher education. Over 50 authors, all international experts in their field, combined to produce a text that contains the latest in thinking and the best in practice. It therefore provides in one book a stateoftheart statement on tertiary teaching from a multiperspective standpoint. No previous book has attempted to take such a wide view of the topic

Lighting mathematical fires 2 by
Derek Allan Holton(
Book
)
8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The aims of this book is to provide stimulating material for students in years 2 to 8 in the form of a series of problems. Some of these problems are really investigations or explorations as they develop through a number of stages involving extensions of the original problems. These extensions allow problems to be tackled by students of differing ages and abilities as well as giving students the chance to understand the way research mathematicians think. This also means that problems do not have to be completed in a single session; teachers may choose to come back later in the year as students' knowledge develops
