Mathematical Thinking – How to Develop it in the Classroom
Developing mathematical thinking is one of major aims of mathematics education. In mathematics education research, there are a number of researches which describe what it is and how we can observe in experimental research. However, teachers have difficulties to develope it in the classrooms.
This book is the result of lesson studies over the past 50 years. It describes three perspectives of mathematical thinking: Mathematical Attitude (Minds set), Mathematical Methods in General and Mathematical Ideas with Content and explains how to develop them in the classroom with illuminating examples.
Readership: Mathematics educators of teacher training colleges, mathematics teachers, prospective teachers (elementary and secondary school) and undergraduate students in mathematics.
