By Jacqueline Dewar, Pao-sheng Hsu, Harriet Pollatsek

Many within the arithmetic group within the U.S. are taken with arithmetic schooling in quite a few capacities. This publication highlights the breadth of the paintings in K-16 arithmetic schooling performed by way of individuals people departments of mathematical sciences. It includes contributions through mathematicians and arithmetic educators who do paintings in components reminiscent of instructor schooling, quantitative literacy, casual schooling, writing and communique, social justice, outreach and mentoring, tactile studying, paintings and arithmetic, ethnomathematics, scholarship of educating and studying, and arithmetic schooling examine. participants describe their paintings, its influence, and the way it really is perceived and valued. furthermore, there's a bankruptcy, co-authored through mathematicians who've turn into directors, at the demanding situations of aiding, comparing, and lucrative paintings in arithmetic schooling in departments of mathematical sciences.

This publication is meant to notify the readership of the breadth of the paintings and to motivate dialogue of its price within the mathematical neighborhood. The writing is expository, now not technical, and will be available and informative to a various viewers. the first readership contains all these in departments of mathematical sciences in or 4 yr schools and universities, and their directors, in addition to graduate scholars. Researchers in schooling can also locate issues of curiosity. different capability readers contain these doing paintings in arithmetic schooling in faculties of schooling, and academics of secondary or center institution arithmetic in addition to these thinking about their specialist development.

In their chapter in this volume, Lopez et al. discussed how three faculty in the department used research literature and the experiences of other institutions to design a quantitative reasoning course that would “strengthen the quantitative and financial literacy of the students” (Chap. 17, p. 249). This group not only focused on the student learning outcomes in designing the course, but thought carefully about the pedagogy and the learning environment. Catepillán’s chapter in this volume outlined a different challenge: how to use her background in ethnomathematics to develop a mathematics course that also met the student learning outcomes to qualify as a diversity course (Chap.

This chapter is a good resource for departments looking for a framework for assessing a wide variety of education-related work. Its authors describe methods for evaluating these contributions. They also reflect on the challenges: Unfortunately, many faculty in departments of mathematical sciences are unaware of the complexity of the problems, the dire need for mathematical experts to be involved, and the difficulty of such experts to find meaningful ways to make contributions to these problems.
