This monograph marks a major step in the growth of the Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) as the leading organization for mathematics teacher educators. It is an effort by AMTE to provide further support for the work of mathematics teacher educators throughout the United States. It is hoped that readers will find this monograph to be useful in their day-to-day work with mathematics teachers. Learning to be a mathematics teacher is a life-long process, but so is learning to be a mathematics teacher educator. Just as mathematics teachers need opportunities for professional growth, so do mathematics teacher educators. Publications such as this monograph can serve an important role in the professional development of mathematics teacher educators.

Presents a clear bridge between mathematics and the liberal arts Mathematics for the Liberal Arts provides a comprehensible and precise introduction to modern mathematics intertwined with the history of mathematical discoveries. The book discusses mathematical ideas in the context of the unfolding story of human thought and highlights the application of mathematics in everyday life. Divided into two parts, Mathematics for the Liberal Arts first traces the history of mathematics from the ancient world to the Middle Ages, then moves on to the Renaissance and finishes with the development of modern mathematics. In the second part, the book explores major topics of calculus and number theory, including problem-solving techniques and real-world applications. This book emphasizes learning through doing, presents a practical approach, and features: A detailed explanation of why mathematical principles are true and how the mathematical processes work Numerous figures and diagrams as well as hundreds of worked examples and exercises, aiding readers to further visualize the presented concepts Various real-world practical applications of mathematics, including error-correcting codes and the space shuttle program Vignette biographies of renowned mathematicians Appendices with solutions to selected exercises and suggestions for further reading Mathematics for the Liberal Arts is an excellent introduction to the history and concepts of mathematics for undergraduate liberal arts students and readers in non-scientific fields wishing to gain a better understanding of mathematics and mathematical problem-solving skills.

A Volume in The Montana Mathematics Enthusiast:Monograph Series in Mathematics EducationSeries Editor Bharath Sriraman, The University of MontanaThe word "critical" in the title of this collection has three meanings, all of which are relevant. One meaning, as applied toa situation or problem, is "at a point of crisis". A second meaning is "expressing adverse or disapproving comments orjudgments". A third is related to the verb "to critique", meaning "to analyze the merits and faults of". The authorscontributing to this book pose challenging questions, from multiple perspectives, about the roles of mathematics insociety and the implications for education. Traditional reasons for teaching mathematics include: preparing a newgeneration of mathematics researchers and a cadre of technically competent users of mathematics; training students tothink logically; and because mathematics is as much part of cultural heritage as literature or music. These reasons remainvalid, though open to critique, but a deeper analysis is required that recognizes the roles of mathematics in framing manyaspects of contemporary society, that will connect mathematics education to the lived experiences of students, theircommunities, and society in general, and that acknowledges the global ethical responsibilities of mathematicians andmathematics educators.The book is organized in four sections (1) Mathematics education: For what and why?(2) Globalization and cultural...

A volume in Cognition, Equity, & Society: International PerspectivesSeries Editors: Bharath Sriraman, University of Montanaand Lyn English, Queensland University of TechnologyMathematics is traditionally seen as the most neutral of disciplines, the furthest removed from the argumentsand controversy of politics and social life. However, critical mathematics challenges these assumptions andactively attacks the idea that mathematics is pure, objective, and value‐neutral. It argues that history, society,and politics have shaped mathematics-not only through its applications and uses but also through molding its concepts, methods, and evenmathematical truth and proof, the very means of establishing truth. Critical mathematics education also attacks the neutrality of the teaching andlearning of mathematics, showing how these are value‐laden activities indissolubly linked to social and political life. Instead, it argues that the valuesof openness, dialogicality, criticality towards received opinion, empowerment of the learner, and social/political engagement and citizenship arenecessary dimensions of the teaching and learning of mathematics, if it is to contribute towards democracy and social justice.This book draws together critical theoretic contributions on mathematics and mathematics education from leading researchers in the field.Recurring themes include: The natures of mathematics and critical mathematics education, issues of epistemology and ethics; Ideology, thehegemony o...

Engage students in mathematics using growth mindset techniques The most challenging parts of teaching mathematics are engaging students and helping them understand the connections between mathematics concepts. In this volume, you'll find a collection of low floor, high ceiling tasks that will help you do just that, by looking at the big ideas at the third-grade level through visualization, play, and investigation. During their work with tens of thousands of teachers, authors Jo Boaler, Jen Munson, and Cathy Williams heard the same message—that they want to incorporate more brain science into their math instruction, but they need guidance in the techniques that work best to get across the concepts they needed to teach. So the authors designed Mindset Mathematics around the principle of active student engagement, with tasks that reflect the latest brain science on learning. Open, creative, and visual math tasks have been shown to improve student test scores, and more importantly change their relationship with mathematics and start believing in their own potential. The tasks in Mindset Mathematics reflect the lessons from brain science that: There is no such thing as a math person – anyone can learn mathematics to high levels. Mistakes, struggle and challenge are the most important times for brain growth. Speed is unimportant in mathematics. Mathematics is a visual and beautiful subject, and our brains want to think visually about mathematics. With engaging questions, open-ended tasks, and four-color visuals that will help kids get excited about mathematics, Mindset Mathematics is organized around nine big ideas which emphasize the connections within the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and can be used with any current curriculum.
