"Technology is essential in teaching and learning of mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taught and it enhances students’ learning.” How does research inform this clarion call for technology in mathematics teaching and learning? In response to the need to craft appropriate roles for technology in school mathematics new technological approaches have been applied to the teaching and learning of mathematics, and these approaches have been examined by researchers world-wide. _x000D_
The first volume provides insight into what research suggests about the nature of mathematics learning in technological environments. Included in this volume are syntheses of research on technology in the learning of rational number, algebra, elementary and secondary geometry, mathematical modeling, and calculus. Additional chapters synthesize research on technology in the practice of teaching and on equity issues in the use of technology in mathematics instruction. Instead of simply reporting achievement scores of students who use technology in their learning, authors provide thoughtful analyses of bodies of research with the goal of understanding the ways in which technology affects what and how students learn. Each of the chapters in this volume is written by a team of experts whose own research has provided important guidance to the field.
Founded in 1999 by George F. Johnson, IAP is a social science publisher of academic and scholarly book series, monographs, handbooks, encyclopedia and journals. IAP's goal is to develop a comprehensive collection of materials that break down and define specific niches that lack high-level research material in the fields of Education, Psychology, Management, Leadership, Educational Technology, Mathematics and Black studies. Our products are offered in both print and electronic formats where possible. We market and promote our materials to librarians, professors and professionals throughout the world. We look forward to having you become a part of our continuously growing program.
