Product Description

By William Tate, Karen King, Celia Rousseau Anderson

Traditionally, researchers and mathematics education practitioners have been engaged in parallel play, yet they have been segregated by the norms and cultural practices of their distinct institutions and professional reward systems. Rarely do mutually dependent and informing intellectual pathways emerge. This book explores what happens when tradition is disrupted by one purposefully designed research and practice pathway.

This book offers insights into, and examples of, developing mutually interdependent research and practice processes as part of efforts to improve teacher and leadership capacity, as well as positively influence student learning and related outcomes. This book raises valuable questions for the mathematics education community.

What forms have research and practice pathways taken?
What lessons have been learned from collaborations?

These questions are examined to illustrate where strategic partnerships have linked research to both the design and implementation of practice and programmatic endeavors and to generate evidence to guide both educational decision making and routine modifications related to school mathematics.

Editor William F. Tate offers remarks about the future of research and practice collaborations in mathematics education and maintains that research and practice collaborations should be a standard regimen in movements to improve mathematics teaching and learning.

(eBook) Disrupting Tradition: Research and Practice Pathways in Mathematics Education (PDF)What happens when you form partnerships among researchers and mathematics education professionals?

This book offers insights into, and examples of, the role that research plays in supporting and improving school mathematics while raising valuable questions for the education community. What forms have research and practice activities taken? What lessons have been learned from collaborations? This volume examines both of these questions to illustrate where strategic partnerships have linked research findings to the design of practice and programmatic endeavors, and to generate evidence to guide both educational decision making and routine modifications related to school mathematics.

Achieving Fluency: Special Education and Mathematics
"Is it a learning disability or a teaching disability?"

Achieving Fluency presents the understandings that all teachers need to play a role in the education of students who struggle: those with disabilities and those who simply lack essential foundational knowledge. This book serves teachers and supervisors by sharing increasingly intensive instructional interventions for struggling students on essential topics aligned with NCTM's Curriculum Focal Points, the new Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, and the practices and processes that overlap the content. These approaches are useful for both overcoming ineffective approaches and implementing preventive approaches.
