Teaching Mathematics through Problem Solving 6-12
Harold L. Schoen (ed.)

This book is about problem solving as a means for acquiring new mathematical knowledge, rather than as an activity to be engaged in after studying various concepts and skills.

Articles by a variety of authors are grouped into four sections: ‘Issues and Perspectives’ deals with the conceptual and historical background of teaching mathematics through problem solving; ‘Tasks and Tools for Teaching and Learning’ looks at selecting and using appropriate tasks and learning tools so that the intended mathematical understanding will result; ‘In the Classroom’ focuses on how teaching mathematics through problem solving might play out in the classroom; and a final chapter presents a research perspective.

Incorporated throughout is a collection of ‘Teacher Stories’, in which individual teachers share their own experiences of teaching mathematics through problem solving. An excellent resource which not only looks at the big questions but provides teachers with practical ideas to use in the classroom.
