### Abstract:

Developing mathematical thinking is one of major aims of mathematics education. This book describes three perspectives of mathematical thinking: Mathematical Attitude (Mind's set), Mathematical Methods in General and Mathematical Ideas with Content and explains how to develop them in the classroom with illuminating examples.
