Tips for the Mathematics Teacher: Research-Based Strategies To Help Students Learn.
Posamentier, Alfred S.; Hartman, Hope J.; Kaiser, Constanze
Educational research, often conducted at universities or on educational sites by university researchers, is reported in educational journals, and is most often read by other researchers. The community of classroom teachers, which could benefit from the findings of educational research, rarely learn about these endeavors. The objective of this book is to bring some of the more useful research findings to the classroom teacher. The book is intended to serve as a resource for mathematics teachers that provides them with a way to access the many worthwhile findings resulting from educational, psychological, and sociological research studies done in Europe and in the United States. Chapters include: (1) Instructional Techniques; (2) Social Aspects of the Classroom; (3) Beyond the Classroom; and (4) Developing Positive Attitudes about Mathematics. (ASK)
