Developing computational skills by
Marilyn N Suydam(
Book
)
9 editions published between 1978 and 1987 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (nctm) 1978 Yearbook contains fourteen articles covering a broad spectrum of computational topics. The first article considers the role of computational skills in the world of today and tomorrow. Several articles focus attention on how to help children master the basic facts. Algorithms for operations with whole and fractional numbers are considered in a number of articles, with suggested instructional sequences and teaching strategies. Assessing instruction to plan for diagnosis and remediation is discussed from three points of view, with specific difficulties pinpointed. The vital need to include estimation and mental arithmetic skills as computational goals is highlighted by an article proposing both specific procedures and guidelines. Embedding computational practice in other mathematical settings is the focus of another article, and finally, ways of using a calculator as a tool in developing mathematical ideas are presented.

Mathematics curriculum : issues, trends, and future directions by
Barbara Reys(
Book
)
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mathematics curriculum has long been a topic of keen interest in mathematics education and remains a central issue in efforts to improve mathematics learning opportunities for students. This Yearbook continues in a long line of NCTM Yearbooks that have addressed various facets of the changing mathematics curriculum. Although some factors such as tradition can inhibit significant change, other factors such as policy (e.g., federal No Child Left Behind legislation), societal needs (mathematically literate graduates), and technological advances (computer software, calculators) foster and accelerate the need for change. In the past year alone, a major stateinitiated process for developing 'common core standards' is underway. With 48 states and several territories participating in the articulation of 'college and careerready' high school graduation expectations and common K12 standards, 2010 promises to be a landmark year of discussion and dialogue about mathematics curriculum. This Yearbook reflects some of the many issues that the field is currently discussing so it serves as both a record of current advances and a summary of challenges regarding curriculum. We hope that it will both guide and stimulate thinking about where we have been, where we are, and where we need to go."Publisher's description

One field, many paths : U.S. doctoral programs in mathematics education by
Robert E Reys(
Book
)
10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the first to focus specifically on doctoral programs in mathematics education. It reflects the proceedings of a National Conference on Doctoral Programs in Mathematics Education (Lake Ozark, MO) which was sponsored by the National Science Foundation. This conference was proceeded by a comprehensive survey of programs conducted over the preceding year. The meeting was designed to generate dialog regarding the nature of current doctoral programs in mathematics education, to discuss ways to strengthen such programs, and to detail suggestions and guidelines for faculty engaged in rest

Films in the mathematics classroom by
Barbara J Bestgen(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This document is designed to help teachers become aware of available mathematics films and use them effectively in teaching mathematics. The five main sections cover: (1) Are Mathematics Films Used in Mathematics Classes; (2) Why Use Films in a Mathematics Class; (3) How Should Films be Used; (4) What Mathematics Films Are Currently Available in the United States and Canada; and (5) Where Are Film Procedures and Distributors Located. It is noted that, in general, very few films are used in mathematics classes. The most frequently cited reason for lack of use is that teachers indicate that they do not know what exists. This work contains candid reviews and ratings from classroom teachers and explicit suggestions for planning, previewing, and integrating films into the instructional program. More than 200 mathematics films are listed alphabetically by title. An index is supplied, classifying films under key mathematical topics. (Mp)
