## A History of School Mathematics, Volume 1"Written by those who played leading roles in school mathematics, trained historians, and mathematics educators, this two-volume historical record of mathematics education in the United States and Canada serves not only as a partial guide to present actions but as a tool to better understand who we are. The first volume, organized in a roughly chronological manner, takes readers from the mathematics of the nineteenth century through the late-twentieth century. Themes discussed in the second volume include instructional materials, students and teachers, assessment, and the role of the government in mathematics education. Additional chapters bring an international perspective to the history." |
