About this book

This book provides a fundamental reassessment of mathematics education in the digital era. It constitutes a new mindset of how information and knowledge are processed by introducing new interconnective and interactive pedagogical approaches. Math education is catching up on technology, as courses and materials use digital sources and resources more and more. The time has come to evaluate this new dynamic, which transcends all previous use of ancillary devices to supplement classroom math instruction. Interactivity and interconnectivity with the online world of math and math texts (such as television programs and internet sites) can be integrated with our traditional modes for delivery of math instruction.

This book looks at how this integration can unfold practically by applying these relevant pedagogical principles to elementary topics such as numeration, arithmetic, algebra, story problems, combinatorics, and basic probability theory. The book further exemplifies how mathematics can be connected to topics in popular culture, information technologies, and other such domains. 

Reviews

“This book is one of the very best to address what teaching and learning mathematics should be in the age of connected technology. … The book is highly recommended for an undergraduate course in methods of teaching mathematics. … Also, it is a wonderful text for a professional development course for math teachers whose education preceded the widespread use of technology tools for the classroom.” (G. Abramson, Computing Reviews, computingreviews.com, October, 2016)

“There is no question that the modern educator must use the technology that has created the global village: the students demand it. … Danesi does an excellent job in describing many aspects of the changes taking place in mathematics education. … If you are looking for ways to introduce a little edutainment into your classes, this book will get you started with both information and directions to follow.” (Charles Ashbacher, MAA Reviews, maa.org, August, 2016)
