Ralston, Anthony – Mathematics Teacher, 1985
Computer science may foreshadow some near revolutions in school mathematics, concerning new ways of teaching much of the mathematics curriculum, increased emphasis on discrete mathematics, and the impact of symbolic mathematical systems. Each is discussed, with a distinction made between computer science and computer technology. (MNS)

Wu, Hung-Hsi – Notices of the American Mathematical Society, 1999
This essay discusses inservice professional development and suggests that any improvement in mathematics education must begin with teachers already in the classroom. It includes three examples of mathematical presentations in professional development made in Californian schools relating to discrete mathematics, connections, and technology. (MM)

Cobb, Paul – Focus on Learning Problems in Mathematics, 1991
Challenged is the traditional model for the transmission of mathematics in the elementary school classroom. An inquiry approach to learning mathematics is proposed and supported with results of a year long research project that exposed second graders to mathematical learning experiences using this approach.

Maree, J. G. – B.C. Journal of Special Education, 1992
This article recommends a holistic approach to student problems in mathematics. Teachers need to be aware of all paradigms (e.g., developmental, behaviorist, psychoanalytic) explaining causes of problems in mathematics. Examples of misunderstandings resulting from insufficient knowledge, insufficient mathematical vocabulary, and overgeneralization…
