#### Teaching Mathematics in Multilingual Classrooms

Springer 2001; US$ 120.00Identifies three inter-related dilemmas at the heart of the multi-lingual classroom - code-switching, mediation, and transparency. The author's arguments arise from exploring the realities of actual classrooms, and are shaped by a perspective of teaching as a social practice. more...

#### Transitions Between Contexts of Mathematical Practices

Springer 2001; US$ 145.00This text focuses attention on mathematics learners in transition and on their practices in different contexts; on the institutional and socio-cultural framing of the transition processes involved; and on the communication and negotiation of mathematical meanings during transition. more...

#### Beliefs: A Hidden Variable in Mathematics Education?

Springer 2003; US$ 152.00The 20 chapters in this book all focus on aspects of mathematical beliefs, from a variety of different perspectives. Thus, contemporary knowledge of the field is synthesized and existing boundaries are extended. more...

#### Dialogue and Learning in Mathematics Education. Intention, Reflection, Critique

Springer 2003; US$ 114.00This title is concerned with communication in mathematics class-rooms. In a series of empirical studies of project work, it follows students' inquiry co-operation as well as students' obstructions to inquiry co-operation. more...

#### Didactics of Mathematics as a Scientific Discipline

Springer 1993; US$ 299.00This text describes the state-of-the-art in this branch of science. Starting from a general perspective on the didactics of mathematics, the 30 original contributions to the book go on to identify certain subdisciplines and suggest an overall structure or 'topology' for the field. more...
