About this book

This open access book, inspired by the ICME 13 Thematic Afternoon on “European Didactic Traditions”, takes readers on a journey with mathematics education researchers, developers and educators in eighteen countries, who reflect on their experiences with Realistic Mathematics Education (RME), the domain-specific instruction theory for mathematics education developed in the Netherlands since the late 1960s. Authors from outside the Netherlands discuss what aspects of RME appeal to them, their criticisms of RME and their past and current RME-based projects. 

It is clear that a particular approach to mathematics education cannot simply be transplanted to another country. As such, in eighteen chapters the authors describe how they have adapted RME to their individual circumstances and view on mathematics education, and tell their personal stories about how RME has influenced their thinking on mathematics education.

Reviews

“The inclusion throughout both volumes of thought-provoking examples of RME authentic context tasks offers opportunities for the reader to engage in moments of guided reinvention, serving as models of particular mathematics content, as well as creating models for reflection on the meaning and potential offered by Realistic Mathematics Education. There is a little bit of something for everyone in these books, and they represent an important contribution to the growing body of literature in the field of mathematics education.” (Anne R. Teppo, Educational Studies in Mathematics, Issue 104, 2020)

“The book is written for those familiar with the RME tradition. I judge that is the audience who will find this volume of most interest. … What this volume contributes more uniquely is the personal histories and comparative experiences of scholars working to build on the tradition.” (Paul Christian Dawkins, MAA Reviews, December 14, 2019)
