Second handbook of research on mathematics teaching and learning : a project of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics by
Frank K Lester(
)
30 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The audience remains much the same as for the 1992 Handbook, namely, mathematics education researchers and other scholars conducting work in mathematics education. This group includes college and university faculty, graduate students, investigators in research and development centers, and staff members at federal, state, and local agencies that conduct and use research within the discipline of mathematics. The intent of the authors of this volume is to provide useful perspectives as well as pertinent information for conducting investigations that are informed by previous work. The Handbook should also be a useful textbook for graduate research seminars. In addition to the audience mentioned above, the present Handbook contains chapters that should be relevant to four other groups: teacher educators, curriculum developers, state and national policy makers, and test developers and others involved with assessment. Taken as a whole, the chapters reflects the mathematics education research community's willingness to accept the challenge of helping the public understand what mathematics education research is all about and what the relevance of their research findings might be for those outside their immediate community"Publisher's website

Mathematical problem solving : issues in research by
Frank K Lester(
Book
)
11 editions published in 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This set of papers was originally developed for a conference on Issues and Directions in Mathematics Problem Solving Research held at Indiana University in May 1981. The purpose is to contribute to the clear formulation of the key issues in mathematical problemsolving research by presenting the ideas of actively involved researchers. An introduction provides an overview of each paper. The papers focus on the psychology of mathematical problem solving (R.E. Mayer), knowledge organization (E.A. Silver), implications from informationprocessing psychology, (D.J. Briars) building bridges between psychological and mathematics education research (F.K. Lester, Jr.), measuring problem solving outcomes (G.A. Goldin), a model for elementary teacher training in problem solving (J.F. LeBlanc), applied problem solving (R. Lesh, and M. Akerstrom), a conceptlearning perspective (R.J. Shumway), and a statement of issues (H.L. Schoen). (Mns)
