Technology is playing an increasingly important role in the teaching and learning of mathematics at all levels. This publication reports on overviews of research and findings on the impact of technology. It furnishes a rich context in which to observe teachers in prekindergarten through grade 12 and teacher educators using technology to help their students better understand mathematics, and gives us all a glimpse of what the future might hold in store for us. The accompanying CD includes electronic features that enhance an understanding of the articles presented in the printed yearbook.

This book looks at the purpose and pedagogy of STEM teaching and explores the ways in which STEM subjects can interact in the curriculum to enhance student understanding, achievement and motivation. By reaching outside their own classroom, teachers can collaborate across STEM subjects to enrich learning and help students relate school science, technology and maths to the wider world. Packed with ideas and practical details for teachers of STEM subjects, the new revised edition of this book: ■ considers what the STEM subjects contribute separately to the curriculum and how they relate to each other in the wider education of secondary school students; ■ describes and evaluates different curriculum models for STEM; ■ suggests ways in which a critical approach to the pedagogy of the classroom, laboratory and workshop can support and encourage all pupils to engage fully in STEM; ■ addresses the practicalities of introducing, organising and sustaining STEM-related activities in the secondary school; ■ looks to ways schools can manage and sustain STEM approaches in the long-term. This new revised edition is essential reading for trainee and practising teachers, those engaged in further professional development and all who wish to make the learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics an interesting, motivating and exciting experience for their students.

This book deals directly with the use of ICT training in teaching and tackles the U.K.'s Teacher Training Agency's national standards for ICT, both for qualified teacher status and for subject leadership. However, its emphasis is on how the use of ICT can contribute to reaching the learning objectives for each subject, not on using "gizmos" for their own sake. The book deals with the use of a range of media, including the Internet and CD-ROMs.

The revision of this book introduces the 2000 NCTM Principles and Standards and explains their use for teaching secondary school mathematics instruction. Unlike other books, it utilizes 125 enrichment units to provide the staples in preparing to teach mathematics. The authors provide step-by-step techniques on preparing lessons and tests, motivating students, designing assignments, and organizing the classroom. This valuable book also provides practical teaching methods for immediate use along with answers to typical questions readers have about teaching math. Chapter topics include the mathematics teacher today, long-range and short range planning, teaching more effective lessons, the role of problem solving in the mathematics classroom, using technology to enhance mathematics instruction, authentic assessment and grading strategies, enriching mathematics instruction, and extracurricular activities in mathematics. For mathematics teachers in secondary schools.

An update to the original 1992 publication, this two-volume set unites current research to provide new conceptualizations of research problems, and to suggest possible research programs to move the field forward. In studying the existing research, the authors found that the community has maintained its focus on problems of learning, teaching, teacher education, assessment, technology, and social and cultural aspects of mathematics education, while some new areas of interest have emerged or been expanded. This set allows educators to step back and look at each of these areas to see where mathematics education research has been and where it should be going to enable the field to answer the questions about education that practitioners, policy makers, and politicians are asking.

The flood of information technology (I.T.) products and services entering the market place often obscures the need to nurture the research enterprise. But as I.T. becomes integrated into all aspects of society, the need for research is even greater. And the range of issues that need to be addressed is broader than ever. This new book highlights the fundamental importance of research to ensure that I.T. meets society's expanding needs. Against the background of dramatic change in the I.T. landscape, the committee examines four key questions: Is the scope of I.T. research broad enough-particularly in the arena of large-scale systems-to address government, business, and social applications? Are government and industrial sponsors providing sufficient funding for I.T. research? Is the research net big both big and diverse enough to capture sufficient financial and intellectual resources to advance the field? Are structures and mechanisms for funding and conducting research suited to the new sets of research challenges?

Mathematics, Science and Technology Education (MSTE) emerged as a research discipline in the 1960s, and continues to reflect the distinctive flavour and character of its roots in Western societies, and science. In this mode, often based on positivist frameworks, research environments are characterised by idealised environments, sanitised research conditions; depoliticised neutralised data and contested analyses. The book arises from needs in the mathematics and science education research community in Southern Africa for a methodology text that is responsive to rapidly changing educational environments; and to the challenges and possibilities of research in contexts characterised by inequality, diversity, poverty, violence, the particular history within which research takes place, and the consequent ethical and socio-political considerations. The book also acknowledges and works with the practical and political realities of education and schooling in much of Southern Africa, where schools are often poorly resourced and communication with them is often difficult, and where research methodologies and ethics have to take account of the complexities of school operations and school-community relationships. The book does not aim to position itself as a counterpoint to 'conventional' research methodologies. It aims to build on the established base of mainstream MSTE and seeks to elevate and widen the debates, raise methodological issues, and offer innovative possibilities and pedagogies. To this end, the chapters present theoretical, meta-level reflections on issues in research design in the fields of mathematics, science and technology education. In this shift of focus, the book draws on a number of fairly recent research approaches. These include ethno mathematics, cultural studies in science education, place-based education, community-based education, environmental education, socially critical theory, and education for social and economic development.
