About this book

The book presents a selection of the most relevant talks given at the 21st MAVI conference, held at the Politecnico di Milano. The first section is dedicated to classroom practices and beliefs regarding those practices, taking a look at prospective or practicing teachers’ views of different practices such as decision-making, the roles of explanations, problem-solving, patterning, and the use of play. Of major interest to MAVI participants is the relationship between teachers’ professed beliefs and classroom practice, aspects that provide the focus of the second section. Three papers deal with teacher change, which is notoriously difficult, even when the teachers themselves are interested in changing their practice. In turn, the book’s third section centers on the undercurrents of teaching and learning mathematics, which can surface in various situations, causing tensions and inconsistencies.  The last section of this book takes a look at emerging themes in affect-related research, with a particular focus on attitudes towards assessment. The book offers a valuable resource for all teachers and researchers working in this area.

About the authors

Domenico Brunetto is a young researcher at the Mathematics Department, Polytechnic of Milan. His research interests are: the usage of multimedia (especially MOOCs) in classroom practice, the interaction between students in small and large groups, and network analysis. His current research project analyses and models student interactions, both online and in the classroom, using opinion dynamics models adapted to the teaching-learning context.

Chiara Andrà is a post-doctoral fellow at the Mathematics Department, Polytechnic of Milan. Her research interests include: intuitions in probability, social interactions in small group activities in the math classroom, the transition from secondary to tertiary education, and mathematics teacher education.

Esther Levenson is a researcher and instructor at the Department of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education at Tel-Aviv University, and at the Kibbuztim College of Education. In her PhD study she investigated mathematically and practically based explanations in the elementary school, especially individual preferences and socio-mathematical norms. Her current research interests include: fostering mathematical creativity among students and teachers, developing mathematical thinking among preschool children and their teachers, and the role that examples play in eliciting explanations. She serves on the editorial board of Educational Studies in Mathematics, and the Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education.

Peter Liljedahl is an Associate Professor of Mathematics Education at the Faculty of Education, an associate member of the Department of Mathematics, and co-director of the David Wheeler Institute for Research in Mathematics Education at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, CA. He is also the president of the IGPME. He is a former high school mathematics teacher who has kept his research interests close to the classroom. These include: creativity, insight, and discovery in mathematics teaching and learning; the role of the affective domain on the teaching and learning of mathematics; the professional growth of mathematics teachers; mathematical problem solving; and numeracy.

Reviews

“Teaching and Learning in Maths Classrooms … is an important book, as it presents a variety of emerging issues in the affective domain of mathematics education. … I recommend this book to researchers in an early stage of their career, those who need a fresh perspective towards affect-related research and those looking to learn more from various research designs and analyses.” (Woong Lim, MAA Reviews, October, 2017)
