This volume, a comprehensive survey and critical analysis of today’s issues in mathematics education, distills research to build knowledge and capacity in the field.
The compendium is a valuable new resource that provides the most comprehensive evidence about what is known about research in mathematics education.
The 38 chapters present five sections that address research about (1) foundations, (2) methods, (3) mathematical processes and content, (4) students, teachers, and learning environments, and (5) futuristic issues. Each chapter offers a synthesis of research with an eye to the historical development of a research topic and, in particular, historical milestones of the research about the topic.
