New directions for equity in mathematics education by
Walter G Secada(
Book
)
8 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The issue of how to provide equitable schooling for ethnic and linguistic minorities has come to the forefront of education. Walter Secada has brought together researchers to examine equity from the standpoint of mathematics education, an appropriate forum for the topic, since the results are quantifiable and the disparity in performance is stark. This text first addresses broad cultural issues, such as how social class and our notion of merit enter into education. The second section of the book analyzes gender issues in maths learning, and the third and final section looks at language and mathematics

Mathematics classrooms that promote understanding by
Elizabeth Fennema(
Book
)
11 editions published in 1999 in English and Spanish and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This research was organized around content domains and/or continuing issues of education, such as equity and assessment of learning, and was guided by two common goals  defining mathematics content of the K12 curriculum in light of the changing mathematical needs of citizens for the 21st century, and identifying common components of classrooms that enable students to learn the redefined mathematics with understanding. To accomplish these goals, classrooms in which instruction facilitated the growth of understanding were established or studied. This volume reports and discusses the findings that grew out of this research, and subsequent papers and discussions among the scholars engaged in the endeavor."

Rational numbers : an integration of research by
Thomas P Carpenter(
Book
)
14 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Until recently there had been relatively little integration of programs of research on teaching, learning, curriculum, and assessment. However, in the last few years it has become increasingly apparent that a more unified program of research is needed to acquire an understanding of teaching and learning in schools that will inform curriculum development and assessment. The chapters in this volume represent a first step toward an integration of research paradigms in one clearly specified mathematical domain. Integrating a number of different research perspectives is a complex task, and ways mus

11 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book addresses the need of professional development leaders and policymakers for scholarly knowledge about influencing teachers to modify mathematical instruction to bring it more in alignment with the recommendations of the current reform movement initiated by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. The book presents: * theoretical perspectives for studying, analyzing, and understanding teacher change; * descriptions of contextual variables to be considered as one studies and attempts to understand teacher change; and * descriptions of professional development pro

Women and mathematics : research perspectives for change by
Lynn H Fox(
Book
)
6 editions published between 1977 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The results of three investigations into major influences affecting women's participation and achievement in mathematics and their preferences for mathematicsrelated careers are reported. The major cognitive, affective and educational influences are studied. Major social influences, including sex role stereotyping mathematics as a male domain, and perceived usefulness of mathematics for later life roles, are also discussed. Evidence related to hypotheses of biological sources as major influences of differences in mathematical achievement are investigated. The underlying theme of all three papers is the finding that sex differences in mathematics achievement, which are usually evident for the first time around grade 8 or 9, are largely a function of differential course taking rather than any inability on the part of women to learn mathematics. Mathematics tests that do show sex differences usually do not control for the number of courses taken. Also, differences do not appear to have a biological basis. (Author/MP)

Integrating research on the graphical representation of functions by
Thomas A Romberg(
Book

11 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume focuses on the important mathematical idea of functions that, with the technology of computers and calculators, can be dynamically represented in ways that have not been possible previously. The book's editors contend that as result of recent technological developments combined with the integrated knowledge available from research on teaching, instruction, students' thinking, and assessment, curriculum developers, researchers, and teacher educators are faced with an unprecedented opportunity for making dramatic changes

Children's mathematics : cognitively guided instruction by
Thomas P Carpenter(
Book
)
9 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book, with accompanying CDROMs, was written to help readers understand children's intuitive mathematical thinking and use that knowledge to help children learn mathematics with understanding. Based on more than twenty years of research, this book portrays the development of children's understanding of basic number concepts. Detailed explanations and numerous examples of the problemsolving and computational processes that virtually all children use as their numerical thinking develops are included. There is also a description of how classrooms can be organized to foster that development. The accompanying CDROMs provide a look at students and teachers in real classrooms implementing the teaching and learning strategies described in the text. (Mm)

Equidad y enseñanza de las matemáticas : nuevas tendencias(
Book
)
7 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in Spanish and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La cuestión de cómo proporcionar una escolarización equitativa a las mujeres y a las minorías lingüísticas ha vuelto al centro de la investigación, la política educativa y los debates con ella relacionados. Este volumen reúne un conjunto de importantes investigaciones para examinar el problema de la justicia y la igualdad de oportunidades desde la educación matemática, situándose más allá de los antiguos paradigmas y formas de ver la cuestión. La primera parte, dedicada a problemas culturales más generales, analiza propuestas de enseñanza de las matemáticas dirigidas a estudiantes de culturas, necesidades e intereses diferentes. La segunda parte estudia las cuestiones de género en matemáticas desde diversas perspectivas, incluida la feminista. La última parte se dedica al lenguaje y las matemáticas, prestando una gran atención a las situaciones de bilingüismo y de minorías lingüísticas. A lo largo del texto se plantean asimismo los problemas de la potenciación profesional de los docent

Professor Elizabeth Fennema of the University of Wisconsin has been conducting research into mathematics education since the early 1970's. She discusses with Professor Nerida Ellerton of Edith Cowan University the reasons why girls appear not to do as well in mathematics as boys, and suggests some possible solutions. Accompanying booklet offers some points for discussion
