  • Written by experts, Gives a modern approach, Comprehensive in Scope
The Elements of Creativity and Giftedness in Mathematics edited by Bharath Sriraman and KyeongHwa Lee covers recent advances in mathematics education pertaining to the development of creativity and giftedness. The book is international in scope in the “sense” that it includes numerous studies on mathematical creativity and giftedness conducted in the U.S.A, China, Korea, Turkey, Israel, Sweden, and Norway in addition to cross-national perspectives from Canada and Russia. The topics include problem -posing, problem-solving and mathematical creativity; the development of mathematical creativity with students, pre and in-service teachers; cross-cultural views of creativity and giftedness; the unpacking of notions and labels such as high achieving, inclusion, and potential; as well as the theoretical state of the art on the constructs of mathematical creativity and giftedness. The book also includes some contributions from the first joint meeting of the American Mathematical Society and the Korean Mathematical Society in Seoul, 2009. Topics covered in the book are essential reading for graduate students and researchers interested in researching issues and topics within the domain of mathematical creativity and mathematical giftedness. It is also accessible to pre-service and practicing teachers interested in developing creativity in their classrooms, in addition to professional development specialists, mathematics educators, gifted educators, and psychologists.
