About this book

This book contributes to both mathematical problem solving and the communication of mathematics by students, and the role of personal and home technologies in learning beyond school. It does this by reporting on major results and implications of the Problem@Web project that investigated youngsters’ mathematical problem solving and, in particular, their use of digital technologies in tackling, and communicating the results of their problem solving, in environments beyond school. The book has two focuses: Mathematical problem solving skills and strategies, forms of representing and expressing mathematical thinking, technological-based solutions; and students´ and teachers´ perspectives on mathematics learning, especially school compared to beyond-school mathematics.

Reviews

“I enjoyed reading the book and I enjoyed my time solving the problems also by putting myself in young students’ shoes. I can see the benefit of using these problems as well as the suggested solutions in secondary mathematics problem-solving activities. I am planning to use some of these problems (and suggested solutions) with undergraduate, graduate and teacher students as a trigger for a discussion on problem-solving also with digital environments.” (Irene Biza, Research in Mathematics Education, Vol. 19 (3), 2018)


“This book is an extensive summary/report of a three year project where schoolchildren were given problems to solve outside the usual classroom problems. … this study is invaluable in giving modern mathematical educators insights into adapting modern pedagogical techniques to reflect how young people solve problems. … all will find something that they can use to improve the effectiveness of their teaching.” (Charles Ashbacher, MAA Reviews, maa.org, May, 2016)
