Revolutions in Mathematics
ISBN: 9780198514862 / Angielski / Miękka / 368 str. Social revolutionscritical periods of decisive, qualitative changeare a commonly acknowledged historical fact. The publication of Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions in 1962 led to an exciting discussion of revolutions in the natural sciences; an offshoot of this was a debate in the United States in the mid1970's as to whether the concept of revolution could be applied to mathematics as well as science. This book is the first comprehensive examination of the question. It reprints the original papers of leading supporters and opponents, together with additional chapters giving...

The Didactical Challenge of Symbolic Calculators: Turning a Computational Device Into a Mathematical Instrument
ISBN: 9780387231587 / Angielski / Twarda / 308 str. A significant driver of recent growth in the use of mathematics in the professions has been the support brought by new technologies. Not only has this facilitated the application of established methods of mathematical and statistical analysis but it has stimulated the development of innovative approaches. These changes have produced a marked evolution in the professional practice of mathematics, an evolution which has not yet provoked a corresponding adaptation in mathematical education, particularly at school level. In particular, although calculators  first arithmetic and scientific, then...

Symbols and Meanings in School Mathematics
ISBN: 9780415113854 / Angielski / Miękka / 234 str. Symbols and Meanings in School Mathematics explores the various uses and aspects of symbols in school mathematics and also examines the notion of mathematical meaning. It is concerned with the power of language which enables us to do mathematics, giving us the ability to name and rename, to transform names and to use names and descriptions to conjure, communicate and control our images. It is in the interplay between language, image and object that mathematics is created and can be communicated to others.
The book also addresses a set of questions of particular relevance to... Symbols and Meanings in School Mathematics explores the various uses and aspects of symbols in school mathematics and also examines the notio...

Reasoning and Applied Mathematics for the Early Years: A Handbook for Teachers
ISBN: 9780595407842 / Angielski / Miękka / 135 str. Is it possible that the desire to learn mathematics is being destroyed for most students because of conditioning based on rote learning with the focus on pure mathematics and geometry through computerdriven instruction? Author Robert L. Hammond believes this to be the case and discusses solutions to this problem in "Reasoning and Applied Mathematics for the Early Years: A Handbook for Teachers." Hammond provides lessons on how we can learn to love mathematics by approaching it as a "free creation of thought" as he: Examines the current math programs for reasoning for seventh and...
