Pursuing Excellence in Mathematics Education
Chapters in this book recognize the more than forty years of sustained and distinguished lifetime achievement in mathematics education research and development of Jeremy Kilpatrick. Including contributions from a variety of skilled mathematics educators, this text honors Jeremy Kilpatrick, reflecting on his groundbreaking papers, book chapters, and books - many of which are now standard references in the literature - on mathematical problem solving, the history of mathematics education, mathematical ability and proficiency, curriculum change and its history, global perspectives on mathematics education, and mathematics assessment. Many chapters also offer substantial contributions of their own on important themes, including mathematical problem solving, mathematics curriculum, the role of theory in mathematics education, the democratization of mathematics, and international perspectives on the professional field of mathematics education. Edward A. Silver teaches and advises graduate students in mathematics education and conducts research related to the teaching and learning of mathematics. His scholarly interests include the study of mathematical thinking, especially mathematical problem solving and problem posing; the design and analysis of intellectually engaging and equitable mathematics instruction for students; innovative methods of assessing and reporting mathematics achievement; effective models for enhancing the knowledge of teachers of mathematics; and examining the interface between research and practice in education. He has published more than 160 articles, chapters, and books on these topics. Christine Keitel is a professor of mathematics education in the department of education and psychology at Freie Universitat in Berlin.
