About this book

This book provides an in-depth analysis of the use of a set of mathematical competencies to develop mathematics education. A previous analysis carried out for a Danish audience (Niss & Jensen, 2002) provides a central case study for analysis and discussion. Additional chapters describe the past, present and future of the competency approach to the development of mathematics education globally.
