- The Origin of the Logic of Symbolic Mathematics, 2011 Burt C. Hopkins presents the first in-depth study of the work of Edmund Husserl and Jacob Klein on the philosophical foundations of the logic of modern symbolic mathematics.
- Isaac Newton on Mathematical Certainty and Method, 2011 Historians of mathematics have devoted considerable attention to Isaac Newton's work on algebra, series, fluxions, quadratures, and geometry. In Isaac Newton on Mathematical Certainty and Method, NiccolĂ˛ Guicciardini examines a critical aspect of Newton's work that has not been tightly connected to Newton's actual practice: his philosophy of mathematics.
- A Mathematical Tapestry : Demonstrating the Beautiful Unity of Mathematics, 2010 This easy-to-read 2010 book demonstrates how a simple geometric idea reveals fascinating connections and results in number theory, the mathematics of polyhedra, combinatorial geometry, and group theory.

There are several titles of interest to elementary and secondary school teachers in our eBook collection. Use the direct links below to access the full text of these titles.

- Geometry as Objective Science in Elementary School Classrooms, 2011 This study examines the origins of geometry in and out of the intuitively given everyday lifeworlds of children in a second-grade mathematics class. These lifeworlds, though pre-geometric, are not without model objects that denote and come to anchor geometric idealities that they will understand at later points in their lives.
- Learning to Read the Numbers : Integrating Critical Literacy and Critical Numeracy in K-8 Classrooms, 2011 Explaining and illustrating how K-8 teachers can engage students in developing the ability to be both critical composers and critical readers of texts, Learning to Read the Numbers is designed for teacher education courses across the areas of language arts, mathematics, and curriculum studies, and for elementary teachers, administrators, and literacy and mathematics coaches.
- Learning to Teach Mathematics in the Secondary School, 2011 What is the role of mathematics in the secondary classroom? What is expected of a would-be maths teacher? How is mathematics best taught and learnt? Learning to Teach Mathematics in the Secondary School combines theory and practice to present a broad introduction to the opportunities and challenges of teaching mathematics in the modern secondary school classroom.
- The Mathematics That Every Secondary School Math Teacher Needs to Know, 2011 What knowledge of mathematics do secondary school math teachers need to facilitate understanding, competency, and interest in mathematics for all of their students? This unique text and resource bridges the gap between the mathematics learned in college and the mathematics taught in secondary schools.
- Unlocking Mathematics Teaching, 2011 Unlocking Mathematics Teaching is a comprehensive guide to teaching mathematics in the primary school. Combining theory and practice, selected experts outline the current context of mathematics education. They suggest strategies, activities and examples to help develop readers understanding and confidence in delivering the curriculum.
