Helping Children Learn Mathematics

Jeremy Kilpatrick, Jane Swafford

National Academies Press | 2002 | 52 páginas


Results from national and international assessments indicate that school children in the United States are not learning mathematics well enough. Many students cannot correctly apply computational algorithms to solve problems. Their understanding and use of decimals and fractions are especially weak. Indeed, helping all children succeed in mathematics is an imperative national goal. However, for our youth to succeed, we need to change how we're teaching this discipline. Helping Children Learn Mathematics provides comprehensive and reliable information that will guide efforts to improve school mathematics from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. The authors explain the five strands of mathematical proficiency and discuss the major changes that need to be made in mathematics instruction, instructional materials, assessments, teacher education, and the broader educational system and answers some of the frequently asked questions when it comes to mathematics instruction. The book concludes by providing recommended actions for parents and caregivers, teachers, administrators, and policy makers, stressing the importance that everyone work together to ensure a mathematically literate society.

This book is a collection of thought-provoking essays that frame basic issues, provide background, and suggest ways to strengthen the mathematical education of all students. The essays present ideas for making mathematical education meaningful for all students--how to meet the practical needs of students entering the work force after high school as well as the needs of those going on to postsecondary education. The essays take up issues such as: finding common ground between science and mathematics education standards and improving the articulation from school to work. High School Mathematics at Work provides thoughtful views from mathematicians, educators, and other experts, and identifies rich possibilities for teaching mathematics and preparing students for the technological challenges of the future.
