Extension Mathematics for Higher achieving students is for students who need and enjoy the challenge of working with material which encourages the application of higher order thinking. The problems and tasks are based on the topic and concept areas studied in the upper middle curriculum with extra task to allow challenge, application and extension of ideas. Solving the problems requires each student to seek information beyond the classroom, modifying their thinking and being prepared to use and think of new approaches in unfamiliar situations. The tasks can be used as an addition to the teaching program where more able students can be directed to pursue challenges which require the application of a range of problem solving techniques centred on the topic being studied.

The audience remains much the same as for the 1992 Handbook, namely, mathematics education researchers and other scholars conducting work in mathematics education. This group includes college and university faculty, graduate students, investigators in research and development centers, and staff members at federal, state, and local agencies that conduct and use research within the discipline of mathematics. The intent of the authors of this volume is to provide useful perspectives as well as pertinent information for conducting investigations that are informed by previous work. The Handbook should also be a useful textbook for graduate research seminars. In addition to the audience mentioned above, the present Handbook contains chapters that should be relevant to four other groups: teacher educators, curriculum developers, state and national policy makers, and test developers and others involved with assessment. Taken as a whole, the chapters reflects the mathematics education research community's willingness to accept the challenge of helping the public understand what mathematics education research is all about and what the relevance of their research fi ndings might be for those outside their immediate community.

​​This volume gathers together twenty major chapters that tackle a variety of issues associated with equity in mathematics education along the dimensions of gender, culture, curriculum diversity, and matters of a biological nature. The pursuit of equity in mathematics education is an important concern in the history of the present. Since there is no doubt about the significant role of mathematics in almost every aspect of life, it means that all individuals regardless of sex, in any age range, and in whatever context need to be provided with an opportunity to become mathematically able. The publication of this Springer volume on equity in mathematics education is situated at a time when there is strong and sustained research evidence indicating the persistence of an equity gap in mathematics, which has now enabled the mathematics education community to engage in a discourse of access for all. The research studies that are reported and discussed in the volume have been drawn from an international group of distinguished scholars whose impressive, forward-looking, and thought-provoking perspectives on relevant issues incite, broaden, and expand complicated conversations on how we might effectively achieve equity in mathematics education at the local, institutional, and systemic levels. Further, the up-to-date research knowledge in the field that is reflected in this volume provides conceptual and practical outlines for mechanisms of change, including models, examples, and usable theories that can inform the development of powerful equitable practices and the mobilization of meaningful equity interventions in different contexts of mathematics education.​

The third in the series of yearbooks by the Association of Mathematics Educators in Singapore, Assessment in the Mathematics Classroom is unique as it addresses a focused theme on mathematics education. The objective is to encourage teachers and researchers to include assessment of non-cognitive attributes and to use techniques in addition to paper-and-pencil tests that focus on typical problems. Several renowned international researchers in the field have published their work in the book. The thirteen chapters of the book illustrate evidence-based practices that school teachers and researchers can experiment in their lessons to bring about meaningful learning outcomes. A recurring theme in most chapters is the widely circulated notions of formative assessment and assessment for learning. The book makes a significant contribution towards assessment in mathematics. It is a good resource for research students and a must-read mathematics educators. Contents:Introduction: Assessment Matters (Khoom Yoong Wong & Berinderjeet Kaur)Using a Multi-Dimensional Approach to Understanding to Assess Students' Mathematical Knowledge (Denisse R Thompson & Berinderjeet Kaur)Assessing Problem Solving in the Mathematics Curriculum: A New Approach (Tin Lam Toh, Khiok Seng Quek, Yew Hoong Leong, Jaguthsing Dindyal & Eng Guan Tay)Assessing Conceptual Understanding in Mathematics with Concept Mapping (Haiyue Jin & Khoon Yoong Wong)Using Journal Writing to Empower Learning (Berinderjeet Kaur & Chun Ming Eric Chan)Implementing Alternative Assessment in the Lower Primary Mathematics Classroom (Kai Kow Joseph Yeo)Open-Ended Tasks and Assessment: The Nettle or the Rose (David J Clarke)Using ICT to Improve Assessment (Marja van den Heuvel-Panhuizen, Angeliki Kolovou & Marjolijn Peltenburg)The Assessment for, of and as Learning in Mathematics: The Application of SLOA (Mo Ching Magdalena Mok)Building Bridges Between Large-Scale External Assessment and Mathematics Classrooms: A Japanese Perspective (Yoshinori Shimizu)Errors in Mathematics Assessment Items Written by Pre-Service Teachers (Jaguthsing Dindyal)Affective Assessment in the Mathematics Classroom: A Quick Start (Eng Guan Tay, Khiok Seng Quek & Tin Lam Toh)Implementing Self-Assessment to Develop Reflective Teaching and Learning in Mathematics (Lianghuo Fan) Readership: Mathematics educators, research students and mathematics teachers.

Engaging Young Children in Mathematics: Standards for Early Childhood Mathematics Education brings together the combined wisdom of a diverse group of experts involved with early childhood mathematics. The book originates from the landmark 2000 Conference on Standards for Pre-kindergarten and Kindergarten Mathematics Education, attended by representatives from almost every state developing standards for young children's mathematics; federal government officials; mathematicians; mathematics educators; researchers from mathematics education, early childhood education, and psychology; curriculum developers; teachers; policymakers; and professionals from organizations such as the National Conference of Teachers of Mathematics and the National Association for the Education of Young Children. The main goal of the Conference was to work collectively to help those responsible for framing and implementing early childhood mathematics standards. Although it has its roots in the Conference, the expanded scope of the standards and recommendations covered in this book includes the full range of kindergarten to grade 2. The volume is organized into two main parts and an online appendix (http://www.gse.buffalo.edu/org/conference/). Part One, Major Themes and Recommendations, offers a framework for thinking about pre-kindergarten - grade 2 mathematics education and specific recommendations. Part Two, Elaboration of Major Themes and Recommendations, provides substantive detail regarding young students' understandings of mathematical ideas. Each Part includes five parallel subsections: "Standards in Early Childhood Education"; "Math Standards and Guidelines"; "Curriculum, Learning, Teaching, and Assessment"; "Professional Development"; and "Toward the Future: Implementation and Policy." As a whole the book: * presents comprehensive summaries of research that provide specific guidelines for standards, curriculum, and teaching; * takes the recent reports and recommendations for early childhood mathematics education to the next level; * integrates practical details and research throughout; and * provides a succinct, but thorough review of research on the topics, sequences, and learning trajectories that children can and should learn at each of their first years of life, with specific developmental guidelines that suggest appropriate content for each topic for each year from 2-year-olds to 7-year-olds. This is an indispensable volume for mathematics educators, researchers, curriculum developers, teachers and policymakers, including those who create standards, scope and sequences, and curricula for young children and professional teacher development materials, and students in mathematics education, early childhood trainers, teacher educators, and faculty in mathematics education.
