What Does It Mean To Teach Mathematics Differently?
In the past decade, many countries called for changes that result in students knowing a "different" kind of school mathematics. This is due to a changed view of learning that requires different forms of teaching which are only beginning to be understood. In this paper, findings from research in primary maths classes with "reform-oriented" culture are presented; examples drawn from these classrooms illustrate differences in teaching that influence the mathematics children learn. Two dynamic dimensions derived from this research are presented. (Contains 14 references.) (Author/MM)
