Confronts the growing gap between the disciplines of mathematics education and mathematics
Explores areas of agreement and disagreement between the communities of mathematics educators and mathematicians
Demonstrates the continuing relevance of the debate between the two cultures of mathematics education and mathematics
Contains contributions by Hyman Bass, Jeremy Kilpatrick, Mogens Niss, Michele Artigue, Anna Sfard, and many others
This book is the fruit of a symposium in honor of Ted Eisenberg concerning the growing divide between the mathematics community and the mathematics education community, a divide that is clearly unhealthy for both. The work confronts this disturbing gap by considering the nature of the relationship between mathematics education and mathematics, and by examining areas of commonality as well as disagreement. It seeks to provide insight into the mutual benefit both stand to gain by building bridges based on the natural bonds between them.
