Like preludes, prefaces are usually composed last. Putting them in the front of the book is a feeble reflection of what, in the style of mathe matics treatises and textbooks, I usually call thf didactical inversion: to be fit to print, the way to the result should be the inverse of the order in which it was found; in particular the key definitions, which were the finishing touch to the structure, are put at the front. For many years I have contrasted the didactical inversion with the thoughtexperiment. It is true that you should not communicate your mathematics to other people in the way it occurred to you, but rather as it could have occurred to you if you had known then what you know now, and as it would occur to the student if his learning process is being guided. This in fact is the gist of the lesson Socrates taught Meno's slave. The thoughtexperi ment tries to find out how a student could reinvent what he is expected to learn. I said about the preface that it is a feeble reflection of the didactical inversion. Indeed, it is not a constituent part of the book. It can even be torn out. Yet it is useful. Firstly, to the reviewer who then need not read the whole work, and secondly to the author himself, who like the composer gets an opportunity to review the Leitmotivs of the book

Revisiting mathematics education : China lectures by
Hans Freudenthal(
Book
)
30 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book represents a compilation of the views and ideas of the late Hans Freudenthal, representing his last major contribution to the field of mathematics education. Rather than a presentation of new views, Freudenthal selected and streamlined old ideas, many gathered from his lectures in China, and formed a review of questions and issues in mathematics education. The book is divided into three chapters. Chapter 1, "Mathematics Phenomenologically", explores different aspects of mathematics: What is Mathematics?; "Didactical Principles", discusses the organization of the teaching/learning processes relevant to mathematics, and is divided into four subsections: (1) Guided Reinvention; (2) Bonds with Reality; (3) Learning Processes; and (4) Longterm Learning Processes. Finally, chapter 3, "The Landscape of Mathematics Education", explores the theoretical foundations of mathematics education, and relates it to the current research and practice in the fields in three subsections: (1) Theory of Mathematics Education; (2) Research in Mathematics Education; and (3) Practice of Mathematics Education. Included is a list of the author's publications on mathematics education containing 201 entries. (Mdh)

The Legacy of Hans Freudenthal by
Leen Streefland(
Book
)
7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Legacy of Freudenthal pays homage to Freudenthal and his work on mathematics, its history and education. Almost all authors were his scholars or coworkers. They testify to what they learned from him. Freudenthal himself contributes posthumously. His didactical phenomenology of the concept of force is both provocative and revealing in its originality, compared with what is usually found in physics instruction."BOOK JACKET. "Freudenthal is portrayed as a universal human being by Josette Adda. He made considerable contributions to mathematics itself, e.g. on Homotopy Theory and Lie Groups in Geometry. The exposition of Freudenthal's mathematical life and work is on Van Est's account."BOOK JACKET. "Henk Bos discusses his historical work. The essay review of the 8th edition of Hilbert's Grundlagen der Geometrie serves as a vehicle of thought."BOOK JACKET. "The main part of the book, however, concerns Freudenthal's work on Mathematics Education. Christine Keitel reviews his final book Revisiting Mathematics Education (1991). Fred Goffree describes Freudenthal's 'Working on mathematics education' both from a historical as well as a theoretical perspective. Adrian Treffers analyses Freudenthal's influence on the development of realistic mathematics education at primary level in the Netherlands, especially his influence on the Wiskobasproject of the former IOWO. Freudenthal once predicted the disappearance of mathematics as an individual subject in education sometime around the year 2000, because it would by then have merged with integrated thematic contexts. Jan de Lange anticipates this future development and shows that Freudenthal's prediction will not come true after all. Reflective interludes unveil how he might have influenced those developments. Freudenthal contributed a wealth of ideas and conceptual tools to the development of mathematics education, e.g. on contexts, didactical phenomenology, guided reinvention, mathematisation, the constitution of mental objects, the development of reflective thinking, levels in learning processes, the development of a mathematical attitude and so on, but he did not design very much concrete material. Leen Streefland is dealing with the question of design from a theoretical point of view, while applying Freudenthal's ideas on changing perspective and shifting."BOOK JACKET. "This is a nutshell reflects the richness of the content of this volume that is of interest to teachers, researchers, mathematics educators, mathematicians, educationalists, psychologists and policy makers."BOOK JACKET

Hans Freudenthal (1905  1990) was a Dutch mathematician, born in Luckenwalde, Germany. His scientific activities were of a rich variety. Enrolling at the University of Berlin as a student in the 1920s, he followed in the footsteps of his teachers, and became a topologist, but with a lively interest in group theory. Later in life, after a long journey through the realm of mathematics, working on almost all subjects that drew his interest, he turned towards the practical and methodological issues of the didactics of mathematics
