Effective Mathematics Teaching from Teachers' Perspectives


Effective Mathematics Teaching from Teachers' Perspectives Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What is effective mathematics teaching? This book represents the first purposeful cross-cultural collection of studies to answer this question from teachers' perspectives. It focuses particularly on how teachers view effective teaching of mathematics. Teachers' voices are heard and celebrated throughout the studies reported in this volume. These studies are drawn from many parts of the world representing both Eastern and Western cultural traditions. The editors and authors have deliberately included the views of teachers and educators from different cultural backgrounds, taking into account that beliefs on effective mathematics teaching and its features are highly influenced by one's own culture. The book will provide readers and scholars with the stimulus to take the ideas presented and expand on them in ways that help improve mathematics education for children, teachers and researchers in both the East and the West.

Book News Annotation:

Researchers in mathematics education went out and found actual mathematics teachers in the field, and asked them what they thought about the effective teaching of mathematics. The field in this case spans a hefty section of the globe. The topics include mathematics teachers' individual criteria for instructional quality and attributions for instructional success, the Malaysian mathematics teachers' dilemma, examining the nature of effective teaching through master teachers' lesson evaluation in China, effective mathematics teaching in Finland through the eyes of elementary student teachers, whether the views of elementary mathematics teachers are similar to those of students and their school, and an Australian case study of the effective teaching of mathematics by teachers for teachers.
