  • About this book

  • Presents a practical, multidisciplinary real world problem solving theory
  • Examines current research on how students relate math to the real world
  • Includes narratives of the author's experiences in the classroom
This book examines empirical and theoretical research on the interplay between school mathematics and the real world in order to construct a new, multidimensional instructional problem solving theory. The author considers this new instructional theory in a variety of contexts, including socio-cultural, STEM and virtual world education. The book discusses the implications of teaching real world problem solving in school mathematics. Throughout, the author includes narrative of his own experiences in the classroom.
