School mathematics

The United States must restructure mathematics educationboth what is learned and the way it is taughtif children are to develop the mathematical knowledge and skills they will need to be personally and professionally competent in the twentyfirst century. Joining the recent reports that have opened a national dialogue on these issues, Reshaping School Mathematics focuses discussion on essential ideas that transcend details of current curricula or assessment results.

As states and local school districts implement more rigorous assessment and accountability systems, teachers often face long lists of mathematics topics or learning expectations to address at each grade level, with many topics repeating from year to year. Lacking clear, consistent priorities and focus, teachers stretch to find the time to present important mathematical topics effectively and in depth.

Society’s technological, economic, and cultural changes of the last 50 years have made many important mathematical ideas more relevant and accessible in work and in everyday life. As examples of mathematics proliferate, the mathematics education community is provided with both a responsibility and an opportunity. Educators have a responsibility to provide a highquality mathematics education for all of our students.

Learning mathematics in the middle grades is a critical component in the education of our nation’s youth. The mathematics foundation laid during these years provides students with the skills and knowledge to study higher level mathematics during high school, provides the necessary mathematical base for success in other disciplines such as science, and lays the groundwork for mathematically literate citizens. A variety of evidence suggests that the mathematics education landscape is shifting and evolving rapidly....

The mathematics students need to learn today is not the same mathematics that their parents and grandparents needed to learn. When today's students become adults, they will face new demands for mathematical proficiency that school mathematics should attempt to anticipate. Moreover, mathematics is a realm no longer restricted to a select few. All young Americans must learn to think mathematically, and they must think mathematically to learn.

Today the United States has the challenge and the opportunity to provide all students with the mathematical knowledge, skills, and confidence they will need in a highly technical world. There is considerable nationwide interest in improving students’ understanding of mathematics, combined with an emerging consensus about the essential elements of mathematics instruction; in addition, research has provided valuable insights into how children learn. Together these factors are opening the way to substantial and enduring progress in school mathematics....

Sincemany excellent treatises on the history ofmathemat ics are available, there may seem little reason for writing still another. But most current works are severely techni cal, written by mathematicians for other mathematicians or for historians of science. Despite the admirable schol arship and often clear presentation of these works, they are not especially well adapted to the undergraduate classroom. (Perhaps the most notable exception is Howard Eves’s popular account, An Introduction to the History of Mathematics.

The main objective of the doctoral research was to improve the performance in Physics and Mathematics, at Advanced Level Examinations, of two rural girls’ secondary schools in Arua (Muni and Ediofe) through application of elearning. Both schools have no functional science laboratories and libraries. They also have no qualified and committed teachers who can competently teach at that level of education. The research included participatory action research methodology and the use of interactive multimedia CDROMs for Physics and Mathematics as the main course delivery platform.

Early childhood education has risen to the top of the national policy agenda with recognition that ensuring educational success and attainment must begin in the earliest years of schooling. There is now a substantial body of research to guide efforts to support young children’s learning. Over the past 15 years, great strides have been made in supporting young children’s literacy. This report summarizes the now substantial literature on learning and teaching mathematics for young children in hopes of catalyzing a similar effort in mathematics....

Architecture and Mathematics have constantly balanced between two extremes: an experiential dimension often imbued with contemplative connotations, and the quest for operative techniques that do not necessarily present a spatial meaning. Hence the ambiguity we find ourselves in today, faced simultaneously with architecture’s estrangement from mathematics and the spectacular diffusion of computational tools.

The curriculum vitae of Alice Turner Schafer lists two specializations: abstract algebra (group theory) and women in mathematics. As early as her high school years Alice exhibited a love for mathematics and an interest in teaching as a career. As a mathematics educator she championed the full participation of women in mathematics.

Russian mathematics (later Soviet mathematics, and Russian mathematics once again) occupies a special place in twentiethcentury mathematics. In addition to its wellknown achievements, Russian mathematics established a unique style of research based on the existence of prominent mathematical schools. These schools were headed by recognized leaders, who became famous due to their talents and outstanding contributions to science.

Diane Ravitch, the noted education historian points out “At every level of formal education, from nursery school to graduate school, equal opportu nity became the overriding goal of postwar7 educational reformers. Some times those who led the battles seemed to forget why it was important to keep students in school longer; to forget that the ﬁght for higher enroll ments was part of a crusade against ignorance, and that institutions would be judged by what their students had learned as well as by how many were enrolled.

In order to engage the nonverbal areas of the brain in problem solving, extensive training seems to be needed. This is probably not unlike the processes that one uses to learn to play a musical instrument. 13 Students must practice! One of the eﬀects, and a clear demonstration that the process is working, is when students become ﬂuent with the basic operations and don’t have to think about each separate step. For school mathematics, students must practice with numbers. They must add them until basic addition is automatic. The same for subtraction and multiplication.

I’m the worst, because as I said there’s no way I can get it into my head, even though I pay attention’ (Abreu, 1993, p. 124). This was how Severina, daughter of an unschooled sugarcane farm worker, judged her performance in school mathematics. She entered school at the age of 6. At 14 she was still in year 5. She repeated year 4 three times. After school she worked on the production of manioc flour, and also helped her father in sugarcane farming during the harvest. She acknowledged that people in sugarcane farming could do sums: ‘Yes, they do, but I think they do sums in their...
