Product Description

By Tim Jacobbe, Gary Kader, Patricia Wilson, Rose Mary Zbiek

Celebrating a Valued Tradition of Defining Mathematics Education

  • Features nineteen chapters, each selected from a previous NCTM yearbook and recommended by a past president of NCTM
  • Includes the actual chapters as they originally appeared
  • Explores a wide range of resources and descriptions of experiences that will help mathematics educators refine and support their work


Defining Mathematics Education: Presidential Yearbook Selections, 1926-2012 includes an introduction from Francis (Skip) Fennell, a past president of NCTM, and features nineteen chapters from previous yearbooks, each recommended by a past NCTM president for its enduring quality and relevance. Like the yearbooks they are drawn from, these chapters tell the story of the critical issues, challenges, and innovations that mathematics educators have faced over the past eight decades.

This Seventy-fifth Yearbook is a celebration and reflection of the history of the NCTM yearbooks as a great resource on the key issues of mathematics education through the years. The first yearbook, A General Survey of Progress in the Last Twenty-Five Years, was published in 1926, just six years after NCTM’s founding. Since then, NCTM yearbooks have consistently focused special attention on a wide spectrum of topics of current or future interest to the professional community of mathematics educators. This book will be the last volume in an exceptional serie and is a reflection of where we have been, where we are now, and where we are going.

"Rational Number Sense" (focus 2/14 MTMS)
Fractions and other rational numbers are challenging topics to teach as well as learn. What does it take for students to make sense of rational numbers in their myriad forms, such as fractions, ratios, rates, percentages, and decimals? For instance, understanding fractions requires part-whole thinking, including partitioning, iterating (the process of making copies of a unit fraction to make a whole), and unitizing (identifying the unit and the whole). Making sense of ratios also requires part-part thinking and proportional reasoning involving multiplicative rather than additive comparisons between two quantities. As teachers, we want to focus on how to foster these kinds of complex and sophisticated ways of thinking among our students. The Editorial Panel of Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School wants to know your thoughts on what can be done to improve students’ rational number sense. $13.95
