This alternative textbook for courses on teaching mathematics asks teachers and prospective teachers to reflect on their relationships with mathematics and how these relationships influence their teaching and the experiences of their students. Applicable to all levels of schooling, the book covers basic topics such as planning and assessment, classroom management, and organization of classroom experiences; it also introduces some novel approaches to teaching mathematics, such as psychoanalytic perspectives and post-modern conceptions of curriculum. Traditional methods-of-teaching issues are recast in a new discourse, provoking new ideas for making mathematics education meaningful to teachers as well as their students. Co-authored by a professor and coordinator of mathematics education programs, with illustrative contributions from practicing elementary, middle, and high school mathematics teachers, this book is a unique collaboration across all pre-college grades, making it ideal for teacher discussion groups at any level.
Embracing Mathematics is intended as a method text for undergraduate and master's-level mathematics education courses and more specialized graduate courses on mathematics education, and as a resource for teacher discussion groups.
As a result of deteriorating relations with the Soviet Union, foreign policy makers in Washington became willing to enter a series of controversial agreements with fascist Spain in return for strategic military bases. Large sections of the Spanish political establishment and the left-wing opposition have criticized Franco for having bought these agreements at the cost of national sovereignty. This book is the first account to give the full story of the diplomatic bluff and counter-bluff which lay behind the ultimate compromise.
