For more than a decade, researchers from around the world have been studying the impact of technology on the teaching and learning of mathematics. However, much of this research has not yet been taken into account in teaching, in research, and in the development of new curricula. In these two volumes a distinguished group of national and international mathematics education researchers provide insights into the impact of technology on the teaching and learning of mathematics. The first volume presents syntheses of technology-related research related to various areas of mathematics, mathematics teaching, and equity. The second volume presents case studies of the role of research in the development of technology-intensive curricula and tools. The second volume concludes with perspectives from other authors who address cross-cutting themes in the two volumes.

(Published in Cooperation with the National Council of Teacher of Mathematics) According to NCTM's Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, "Technology is essential in teaching and learning of mathematics; it influences the mathematics that is taught and it enhances students' learning." How does research inform this clarion call for technology in mathematics teaching and learning? In response to the need to craft appropriate roles for technology in school mathematics new technological approaches have been applied to the teaching and learning of mathematics, and these approaches have been examined by researchers worldwide. The second volume has a dual focus: cases and perspectives. It features descriptive cases that provide accounts of the development of technologyintensive curriculum and tools. In these cases the writers describe and analyze various roles that research played in their development work and ways in which research, curriculum development, and tool development can inform each other. These thoughtful descriptions and analyses provide documentation of how this process can and does occur. The remaining chapters in the second volume address research related issues and perspectives on the use of technology in the teaching and learning of mathematics. The lessons learned from the research presented in these volumes are lessons about teaching and learning that can be applied more broadly than solely in technological settings.

Common Core education standards establish a clear set of specific ideas and skills that all students should be able comprehend at each grade level. In an effort to meet these standards, educators are turning to technology for improved learning outcomes. Cases on Technology and Common Core Mathematics provides a compilation of cases and vignettes about the application of technology in the classroom in order to enhance student understanding of math concepts. This book is a timely reference source for mathematics educators, educational technologists, and school district leaders employed in the mathematics education or educational technology fields.

This book is a result of collaboration between NTLS and SITTE. Framing Research is targeted at individuals or small teams of educational researchers who are interested in conducting high quality research addressing the effects of technologyenhanced instruction on student learning. The book summarizes and unpacks the methodologies of a variety of research studies, each situated in the context of school subject areas, such as science, mathematics, social studies, and English/language arts, as well as in the contexts of reading education, special education, and early childhood learning. Taken together, the analyses provide guidance on the design of future technology research grounded in student learning of K12 curriculum. The conclusions also serve as a tool for teacher educators seeking to prepare teachers to integrate technology effectively in their instruction and to motivate reluctant teachers to overcome perceived inconveniences connected with technology use.

Contemporary Perspectives In Data Mining

The series, Contemporary Perspectives on Data Mining, is composed of blind refereed scholarly research methods and applications of data mining. This series will be targeted both at the academic community, as well as the business practitioner. Data mining seeks to discover knowledge from vast amounts of data with the use of statistical and mathematical techniques. The knowledge is extracted from this data by examining the patterns of the data, whether they be associations of groups or things, predictions, sequential relationships between time order events or natural groups. Data mining applications are in finance (banking, brokerage, and insurance), marketing (customer relationships, retailing, logistics, and travel), as well as in manufacturing, health care, fraud detection, homeland security, and law enforcement.

Key Ideas In Teaching Mathematics

Big ideas in the mathematics curriculum for older school students, especially those that are hard to learn and hard to teach, are covered in this book. It will be a first port of call for research about teaching big ideas for students from 9-19 and also has implications for a wider range of students. These are the ideas that really matter, that students get stuck on, and that can be obstacles to future learning. It shows how students learn, why they sometimes get things wrong, and the strengths and pitfalls of various teaching approaches. Contemporary high-profile topics like modelling are included. The authors are experienced teachers, researchers and mathematics educators, and many teachers and researchers have been involved in the thinking behind this book, funded by the Nuffield Foundation. An associated website, hosted by the Nuffield Foundation, summarises the key messages in the book and connects them to examples of classroom tasks that address important learning issues about particular mathematical ideas.
