Fox Co-Authors Chapters in Mathematics Education Textbook

Ryan FoxAssistant Professor of Mathematics and Education Dr. Ryan Fox recently co-authored 10 chapters in a new textbook titled, Mathematical Understanding for Secondary Teaching. The textbook publisher said, “The work described in this volume takes a sometimes-neglected approach, focusing on the dynamic nature of mathematical understanding rather than on a stable description of mathematical knowledge, and on mathematics for secondary teaching rather than mathematics for teaching at the elementary level. The work reported in Mathematical Understanding for Secondary Teaching: A Framework and Classroom-Based Situations is a practice-based response to the question of what mathematical understandings secondary teachers could productively use in their teaching.”
