New monography on the history of mathematics and mathematics education

Professor Bharath Sriraman has edited a new and interesting monograph called "Crossroads in the History of Mathematics and Mathematics Education". The monograph, which is going to receive the number 12 in the "Monograph series in mathematics education", will be published in December or January, but I have been lucky enough to receive a taster to share with the readers of my blog.

If you are interested in the history of mathematics and/or its relation to mathematics education, this book will probably be of high interest to you! The contents feature a section with different topics in the history and didactics of calculus and analysis, and a similar section on the history and didactics of geometry and number. A third section includes four chapters on the history of mathematics in mathematics education. The authors are among the most prominent researchers in these areas, and the table of contents (see below) looks interesting.

June issue of The Mathematics Enthusiast

June 2012 seems to be far away, but I have nonetheless been given the privilege to share with you the table of contents of the June issue of The Mathematics Enthusiast. As usual, the issue will appear on the journal's web site, and the articles will then be freely available as downloadable pdf files. As you can see in the table of contents (below), the issue includes quite a few articles from Nordic researchers, and this is partly due to the inclusion of a section from the North Calotte Conference in Mathematics Education (Tromsø, 2010). So, although June is still quite a few months ahead, this is something to look forward to :-)

Thanks a lot to the editor, Professor Bharath Sriraman, for allowing me once again to provide you with this preview here on my blog!

New issue of The Mathematics Enthusiast is approaching

A new issue of The Mathematics Enthusiast (formerly known as The Montana Mathematics Enthusiast) is approaching, and this one is going to be a double issue. I am happy to announce the table of contents for this new issue, and thanks to the editor (Professor Bharath Sriraman), I am able to do this before it is even announced on the journal's web site! Here it is:
