The mathematics education of prospective secondary teachers around the world by Marilyn E Strutchens( )

19 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and German and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume shares and discusses significant new trends and developments in research and practices related to various aspects of preparing prospective secondary mathematics teachers from 2005–2015. It provides both an overview of the current state-of-the-art and outstanding recent research reports from an international perspective. The authors completed a thorough review of the literature by examining major journals in the field of mathematics education, and other journals related to teacher education and technology. The systematic review includes four major themes: field experiences; technologies, tools and resources; teachers' knowledge; and teachers' professional identities. Each of them is presented regarding theoretical perspectives, methodologies, and major findings. Then the authors discuss what is known in the field and what we still need to know related to the major topics
Mathematical problem solving and new information technologies : research in contexts of practice by João Pedro Ponte( Book )

14 editions published in 1992 in English and Spanish and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses the implications of new information technologies and cognitive psychology for mathematical problem solving research and practice. Based on a NATO Advanced Research Workshop held in Portugal in 1991, it offers both empirical research and theoretical papers. The book includes a thorough discussion on the nature and purpose of problem solving as a mathematical activity, providing a view of the importance of complementary activities such as investigations, conjecturing and problem posing. It focuses on cognitive processes, instruction, classroom processes, and the teacher's role, and contains new assessment and teacher education proposals. At a time of important reform movements, when emphasis is put on the role of new information technologies, the book provides an up-to-date view of the developmental work being done on computerized learning environments in the discipline of mathematics, as well as on the efforts to introduce them in educational practice
Theory and practice of Lesson Study in mathematics : an international perspective by Rongjin Huang( )

4 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together and builds on the current research efforts on adaptation, conceptualization, and theorization of Lesson Study (LS). It synthesizes and illustrates major perspectives for theorizing LS and enriches the conceptualization of LS by interpreting the activity as it is used in Japan and China from historical and cultural perspectives. Presenting the practices and theories of LS with practicing teachers and prospective teachers in more than 10 countries, it enables the reader to take a comparative perspective. Finally, the book presents and discusses studies on key aspects of LS such as lesson planning, post-lesson discussion, guiding theories, connection between research and practice, and upscaling. Lesson Study, which has originated in Asia as a powerful effective professional development model, has spread globally. Although the positive effects of lesson study on teacher learning, student learning, and curriculum reforms have been widely documented, conceptualization of and research on LS have just begun to emerge. This book, including 38 chapters contributed by 90 scholars from 21 countries, presents a truly international collaboration on research on and adaptation of LS, and significantly advances the development of knowledge about this process. The chapter "How Variance and Invariance Can Inform Teachers' Enactment of Mathematics Lessons" is available open access under a CC BY 4.0 license at
