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...

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...
