First Sourcebook on Nordic Research in Mathematics Education

The First Sourcebook on Nordic Research in Mathematics Education is going to be released in July this year, and I have been given the opportunity by the main editor, Professor Bharath Sriraman, to publish the cover photo and the table of contents first, here on this blog!

Being the first one to provide this news is of course great, and I guess that I am also enthusiastic about the book because I am one of the authors. The main reason why I am really enthusiastic about this book, however, is that it is going to be a monumental documentation of Nordic research and contributions to the field of mathematics education research. Putting together a book like this is a feature in itself, and I tip my hat to Bharath and the co-editors for this effort! I am happy that I have been able to be a part of it, and I am looking forward to digging into it! And I am quite certain that the hopes, which are expressed by the main editor in the foreword, are going to become true when it comes to this book. It will be "of use to many generations of mathematics education researchers inside and outside the Nordic world" (p. xii).

So, keep an eye on the publisher's website at http://www.infoagepub.com/products/First-Sourcebook-Nordic-Research-Mathematics-Education to make sure you don't miss the release date! And, in the meantime you can build your expectations by reading the table of contents as well as the foreword below:



New issue of Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education

A new issue of Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education has been published (See SpringerLink - Journal Issue). The issue contains five interesting articles, all of them with a strong focus on inquiry:

Theories of Mathematics Education - Recommendations from Reuben Hersh

"Theories of Mathematics Education: Seeking new frontiers" is the first book in the series: Advances in Mathematics Education. The book was published a while ago, and it has already received good reviews and recommendations. The last in line to recommend the book is Reuben Hersh, and he has some very positive things to say about it:

A very impressive new book, "Theories of Mathematics Education" (Springer) edited by Sriraman and English is meant to inaugurate a new series, "Advances in Mathematics Education" . This first book in the series is a massive and ambitious undertaking, a very wide-ranging survey written in a dialogic format. (See this link for more!)
