    Math City

    by Ahmad Amani

    Not Just Different, But Totally Unique

    “Math City is perhaps one of the most creative reads I have ever seen. this book makes use of the intellect of the reader and forces you to stop and think about what you have read.

    At first, I have to say, I was a little intimidated by this. I wasn’t sure what to think. As the book progressed, I found myself smiling and really enjoying myself. There is no one simple way to say what this book is about. Obviously it makes use of numbers and math to tell the story it presents, but it is so much more than that. The author manages to tell his story by making connections through equations.

    Where a lot of books are character driven, this book makes use of the intellect of the reader and forces you to stop and think about what you have read. I had a really good time with this and was continually surprised by how intelligent and crafty the author is. The idea of having a book that requires participation from the reader was not new to me, but this book was completely unique. I haven’t ever read anything quite like it.

    If you love math, or even if you don’t but you love to tease your brain with an interesting read, this is definitely a book for you. I would recommend this to anyone. Don’t let the simplicity of the cover fool you, this book has a lot more depth than it first appears.” By Ionia Froment

    “This is a fable that uses anthropomorphic characters – numbers – to tell the tale of a struggle, rise to power, loosing that power, and anything in between. The tale is constructed of smaller allegories that fit into a larger one.

    So, what is the “Math City” really about? Since it’s an allegory, it’s best for every reader to find her/his own meaning. A few things seem to be “apparent” at a first glance – Thin vs. Fat numbers, Minus vs. Plus, the Monster number vs. the legion of Ones. Yet I am not so certain that my first impression is the correct answer. Then again, I am pretty bad at allegories – after the initial “I know what that is!”, a multitude of other possible answers present themselves.

    The author gives us a few hints that should prevent us from stuffing this story into a well-defined, reasonable borders of our own experience – “… Math City, of course, not your land; certainly, your land is not like Math City… Anyway, I hope your city is not like my City.” By Oleg Medvedko

    “For an adult, “Math City” is a fascinating fantasy interpretation of modern society’s often confused and mixed propensities for War. Being an international expression, allowances must be fully given to the non-fluid nature of Armani’s narrative, and in spite of lacking precise clarity of language, his story and sub-text are clearly understood. “Number-anity” is presented in full array; no romantic lines of good and bad, no dogmatic right or wrong, just numbers being numbers with opposing desires, opinions, hates and fears, numbers going to war in a muddled, confused, real way when just the right Lying Line is there to lead.

    “Math City” has potential as a supplementary Grade 6 to 9 homeschooling text, allowing the child to experience in an accessible way the art and expression of political allegory applied to real world situations. Within Math City’s problems, basic political conflicts are presented plainly and fairly, violent aspects are depicted in concrete yet not disturbing detail, political proselytizing limited to only “fundamental freedom” vs “propaganda freedom”, touching briefly on Mandela and Lincoln. Math City’s conclusion is not classic closure, as reality never concludes, but does leave a definite sense of a viciously repeating pattern, begging the question at the end, “How do we break this sad cycle of societies?”- an excellent starting point for guided parental discussions and compare/contrast to civilizations past and present.” By TinfootTOP 50 REVIEWER



    Early Algebra: Research into its Nature, its Learning, its Teaching (ICME-13 Topical Surveys)

    by Carolyn Kieran

    This survey of the state of the art on research in early algebra traces the evolution of a relatively new field of research and teaching practice. With its focus on the younger student, aged from about 6 years up to 12 years, this volume reveals the nature of the research that has been carried out in early algebra and how it has shaped the growth of the field. The survey, in presenting examples drawn from the steadily growing research base, highlights both the nature of algebraic thinking and the ways in which this thinking is being developed in the primary and early middle school student. Mathematical relations, patterns, and arithmetical structures lie at the heart of early algebraic activity, with processes such as noticing, conjecturing, generalizing, representing, justifying, and communicating being central to students’ engagement.



    Teacher Quality, Instructional Quality and Student Outcomes: Relationships Across Countries, Cohorts and Time (IEA Research for Education Book 2)

    This volume offers insights from modeling relations between teacher quality, instructional quality and student outcomes in mathematics across countries. The relations explored take the educational context, such as school climate, into account. The International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement’s Trends in Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) is the only international large-scale study possessing a design framework that enables investigation of relations between teachers, their teaching, and student outcomes in mathematics. TIMSS provides both student achievement data and contextual background data from schools, teachers, students and parents, for over 60 countries.

    This book makes a major contribution to the field of educational effectiveness, especially teaching effectiveness, where cross-cultural comparisons are scarce. For readers interested in teacher quality, instructional quality, and student achievement and motivation in mathematics, the comparisons across cultures, grades, and time are insightful and thought-provoking. For readers interested in methodology, the advanced analytical methods, combined with application of methods new to educational research, illustrate interesting novel directions in methodology and the secondary analysis of international large-scale assessment (ILSA).  



    Instructional Scaffolding in STEM Education: Strategies and Efficacy Evidence

    by Brian R. Belland

    This book uses meta-analysis to synthesize research on scaffolding and scaffolding-related interventions in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education. Specifically, the volume examines the extent to which study quality, assessment type, and scaffolding characteristics (strategy, intended outcome, fading schedule, scaffolding intervention, and paired intervention) influence cognitive student outcomes. It includes detailed descriptions of the theoretical foundations of scaffolding, scaffolding strategies that have been proposed to meet different intended learning outcomes in STEM, and associated efficacy information. Furthermore, the book describes assessment strategies and study designs which can be used to evaluate the influence of scaffolding, and suggests new fields in which scaffolding strategies that have proven efficacious may be used.



    Early Geometrical Thinking in the Environment of Patterns, Mosaics and Isometries (ICME-13 Topical Surveys)

    by Ewa Swoboda

    This book discusses the learning and teaching of geometry, with a special focus on kindergarten and primary education. It examines important new trends and developments in research and practice, and emphasizes theoretical, empirical and developmental issues. Further, it discusses various topics, including curriculum studies and implementation, spatial abilities and geometric reasoning, as well as the psychological roots of geometrical thinking and teacher preparation in geometry education. It considers these issues from historical, epistemological, cognitive semiotic and educational points of view in the context of students’ difficulties and the design of teaching and curricula.

    Early Childhood Policies and Systems in Eight Countries: Findings from IEA’s Early Childhood Education Study

    by Tony Bertram

    This report provides an overview of policy strategies on early childhood education settings (from birth to primary schooling) in eight countries. Data were collected using a policy questionnaire addressed to and completed by the National Research Coordinator(s) (NRC) of Chile, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Italy, Poland, the Russian Federation and the United States. The countries that participated provide interesting illustrations of early childhood education policy in action in a range of diverse contexts. Analysis of the systemic and structural results of ECE policy at national and, where necessary, subnational levels, enables transnational comparisons in policy and systems. Key policy changes, both underway and planned, are documented. These data reveal key findings in each of the five policy areas as covered in the questionnaire and this report: public policy; delivery models and providers; participation and enrollment; quality assurance systems; and expectations for child outcomes. In particular, the study aims to provide meaningful information for countries, states and jurisdictions across the world in relation to early childhood education, mapping the systems, structures and user pathways in place, along with the perceptions of stakeholders about the system, its functioning and impact. This comprehensive assessment of the wider policy contexts and settings for early childhood education includes teacher/practitioner qualifications, pedagogy approaches, and opportunities for professional development. Such information will enable countries to review their early childhood education systems in an international context.



    Politics of Quality in Education: A Comparative Study of Brazil, China, and Russia (Routledge Research in International and Comparative Education)

    The question of quality has become one of the most important framing factors in education and has been of growing interest to international organisations and national policymakers for decades. Politics of Quality in Education focuses on Brazil, China, and Russia, part of the so-called emerging nations’ BRICS block, and draws on a four-year project to develop a new theoretical and methodological approach.



    The book builds a comparative, sociohistorical, and transnational understanding of political relations in education, with a particular focus on the policies and practices of Quality Assurance and Evaluation (QAE). Tracking QAE processes from international organisations to individual schools, contributors analyse how QAE changes the dynamics in the roles of state, expertise, and governance. The book demonstrates how national and sub-national actors play a central role in the adaptation, modification or rejection of transnational policies.



    Politics of Quality in Education will be of great interest to academics, researchers and postgraduate students engaged in the study of comparative and international education, as well as educational policy and politics. It should also be essential reading for practitioners and policymakers.

    Uses of Technology in Lower Secondary Mathematics Education: A Concise Topical Survey (ICME-13 Topical Surveys)

    by Paul Drijvers

    This topical survey provides an overview of the current state of the art in technology use in mathematics education, including both practice-oriented experiences and research-based evidence, as seen from an international perspective. Three core themes are discussed: Evidence of effectiveness; Digital assessment; and Communication and collaboration.

    The survey’s final section offers suggestions for future trends in technology-rich mathematics education and provides a research agenda reflecting those trends. Predicting what lower secondary mathematics education might look like in 2025 with respect to the role of digital tools in curricula, teaching and learning, it examines the question of how teachers can integrate physical and virtual experiences to promote a deeper understanding of mathematics.

    The issues and findings presented here provide an overview of current research and offer a glimpse into a potential future characterized by the effective integration of technology to support mathematics teaching and learning at the lower secondary level.



    Education and Skills for Inclusive Growth, Green Jobs and the Greening of Economies in Asia : Case Study Summaries of India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Viet … Issues, Concerns and Prospects Book 27)

    by Rupert Maclean

    This book presents an overview of the main research findings and case studies concerning education and skills for inclusive growth, green jobs and the greening of economies. Focusing on India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Viet Nam, it discusses government and business sector responses to these issues and how Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) systems and institutions are addressing both the renewal of curricula in the context of green growth dynamics, and patterns of training and skills development to meet demands. In addition, the book examines cross-country issues, concerns and prospects regarding education and skills for inclusive growth and green jobs for the four countries. These include critical themes and issues in the selected industry sectors triggering a demand for green jobs in the region; how industry is responding to those demands; areas impeding the transition from traditional to green practices; the importance of skills development; the role of TVET in addressing industry needs; and reasons for the slow response of TVET to green skills.While other studies conducted in Asia – and internationally – on the same topic have largely relied on secondary sources, this study conducted by the Asian Development Bank and the Education University of Hong Kong (ADB-EdUHK) is unique in that the findings, conclusions and recommendations reported on are based on primary data. As part of the study, TVET providers, business enterprises, policy makers and practitioners were surveyed using questionnaires and face-to-face interviews. In addition, workshops were held in each of the four countries to ascertain the views of key stakeholders in government, nongovernment organisations, members of the international development community, TVET providers and members of the business sector.The book also provides summaries of the case studies undertaken for India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Viet Nam.

    Bridging Educational Leadership, Curriculum Theory and Didaktik: Non-affirmative Theory of Education (Educational Governance Research Book 5)

    by Michael Uljens

    This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. This volume argues for the need of a common ground that bridges leadership studies, curriculum theory, and Didaktik. It proposes a non-affirmative education theory and its core concepts along with discursive institutionalism as an analytical tool to bridge these fields. It concludes with implications of its coherent theoretical framing for future empirical research.Recent neoliberal policies and transnational governance practices point toward new tensions in nation state education. These challenges affect governance, leadership and curriculum, involving changes in aims and values that demand coherence. Yet, the traditionally disparate fields of educational leadership, curriculum theory and Didaktik have developed separately, both in terms of approaches to theory and theorizing in USA, Europe and Asia, and in the ways in which these theoretical traditions have informed empirical studies over time. An additional aspect is that modern education theory was developed in relation to nation state education, which, in the meantime, has become more complicated due to issues of â??globopolitanism’. This volume examines the current state of affairs and addresses the issues involved. In doing so, it opens up a space for a renewed and thoughtful dialogue to rethink and re-theorize these traditions with non-affirmative education theory moving beyond social reproduction and social transformation perspectives.



    Subject Learning in the Primary Curriculum: Issues in English, Science and Maths

    The emphasis on subject knowledge in primary curricula is a world-wide phenomenon and has become increasingly the focus of attention in England, with the introduction of the National Curriculum and the appointment of subject co-ordinators in schools. Yet what exactly constitutes a subject and its practice remains controversial.
    The book is organised into five parts. Part one examines the general aims of primary education, in order to give a background for a more detailed exploration of UK curriculum development. Parts two, three and four examine the core subjects of English, science and mathematics, whilst constantly bearing in mind the full range of views about the purpose of education and the nature of knowledge. Part five introduces key debates about approaches to knowledge, and raises issues about the future organisation of the curriculum. Subject Learning in the Primary Curriculum is the OU reader for Module 832, Teaching and Learning in the Primary Core Curriculum in the MA in Education.



    Spaces for Intecultural Learning: an interactive ebook

    by Carolina Carotta

    This ebook is the product of an Erasmus Plus project, “Spaces for Intercultural Learning”. The partnership be-tween six partners was born thanks to the new on-line platforms, mainly EPALE – Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe. After a first contact through mail,
    the six partners – representing six European countries – were ready to start designing the project and exchanging their ideas and work methods through steady online meet-ings (GoToMeeting).
    With the good news of the project acceptance by the Eu-ropean Commission, the partnership officially started with the kick off meeting in Craiova, Romania. This meeting was followed by other workshops and meetings in Belfast in May 2017, Turin in September 2017 and Poland in 2018.
    The aim of the project was to promote intercultural learn-ing by developing new arts-based and action-oriented methods for intercultural teaching and learning. The goal of the e-book is to deepen teachers and educators’ under-standing of intercultural learning and show how intercul-tural competences can be effectively taught and learnt. Additionally, it is a complement to the guidebook Spaces for Intercultural Learning: Methods for teaching Intercul-tural Competences through Art and Action.



    Uses of Technology in Upper Secondary Mathematics Education (ICME-13 Topical Surveys)

    by Stephen Hegedus

    This survey addresses the use of technology in upper secondary mathematics education from four points of view: theoretical analysis of epistemological and cognitive aspects of activity in new technology mediated learning environments, the changes brought by technology in the interactions between environment, students and teachers, the interrelations between mathematical activities and technology, skills and competencies that must be developed in teacher education. Research shows that the use of some technologies may deeply change the solving processes and contribute to impact the learning processes. The questions are which technologies to choose for which purposes, and how to integrate them, so as to maximize all students’ agency.  In particular the role of the teacher in classrooms and the content of teacher education programs are critical for taking full advantage of technology in teaching practice.
