Product Description

By Albert Cuoco, Frances Curcio

The focus of NCTM's 2001 Yearbook is one aspect of how students learn mathematics–in particular, how they learn to form abstractions and build mathematical representations of phenomena. It explains how students come to develop mathematical habits of mind, and even how they develop misunderstandings about mathematics. Discussions on the nature and roles of representation, the use of representation tools for gaining insights, various symbol systems used in mathematics, and the role of context in the interplay between modeling and representation make this an excellent resource for teachers who want to make smart decisions about content and pedagogy.
