A Escrita e o Pensamento MatematicoInterações e Potencialidades


Professores de matemática brasileiros e de outros pa’ses têm questionado se e como a escrita pode servir como veículo para os aprendizes explorarem suas idéias e seus raciocínios matemáticos, ampliando-os. Nesse livro, os autores discutem como diferentes tipos de tarefas escritas podem auxiliar no aprendizado matemático. Com foco na aprendizagem matemática, no ensino e no desenvolvimento profissional, Arthur Powell e Marcelo Bairral examinam algumas atividades que podem ser utilizadas em sala de aula convencional ou em processos formativos a distância pela Internet. Eles apresentam exemplos e analisam produções escritas para mostrar como professores podem utilizar diferentes tipos de atividades escritas para estimular os estudantes a refletir sobre suas experincias matemáticas. Também são indicadas demandas de pesquisa relacionadas ao uso da escrita como veículo para o aprendizado matemático.


Culturally Responsive Mathematics Education
At a time of rapid demographic change and amidst the many educational challenges facing the US, this critical new collection presents mathematics education from a culturally responsive perspective. It tackles the most crucial issues of teaching mathematics to an ethnically diverse school population, including the political dimension of mathematics education within the context of governmental efforts to improve achievement in school mathematics. Culturally Responsive Mathematics Education moves beyond a point of view that is internal to mathematics education as a discipline, and instead offers a broad perspective of mathematics as a significant, liberating intellectual force in our society. The editors of this volume bring together contributions from many of the leading teachers, teacher educators, researchers, scholars, and activists who have been working to reorient mathematics education in ways that reflect mathematics education as accomplished, first and foremost, through human interactions.

EthnomathematicsChallenging Eurocentrism in Mathematics Education

Presents the emerging field of ethnomathematics from a critical perspective, challenging particular ways in which Eurocentrism permeates mathematics education and mathematics in general.
This collection brings together classic, previously-published articles and new research to present the emerging field of ethnomathematics from a critical perspective, challenging particular ways in which Eurocentrism permeates mathematics education. The contributors identify several of the field's broad themes--reconsidering what counts as mathematical knowledge, considering interactions between culture and mathematical knowledge, and uncovering hidden and distorted histories of mathematical knowledge. The book offers a diversity of ethnomathematics perspectives that develop both theoretical and practical issues from various disciplines including mathematics, mathematics education, history, anthropology, cognitive psychology, feminist studies, and African studies written by authors from Brazil, England, Australia, Mozambique, Palestine, Belgium, and the United States.
