The Routledge International Handbook of Dyscalculia and Mathematical Learning Difficulties Synopsis

Mathematics plays an important part in every person's life, so why isn't everyone good at it? The Routledge International Handbook of Dyscalculia and Mathematical Learning Difficulties brings together commissioned pieces by a range of hand-picked influential, international authors from a variety of disciplines, all of whom share a high public profile. More than fifty experts write about mathematics learning difficulties and disabilities from a range of perspectives and answer questions such as: What are mathematics learning difficulties and disabilities? What are the key skills and concepts for learning mathematics? How will IT help, now and in the future? What is the role of language and vocabulary? How should we teach mathematics? By posing notoriously difficult questions such as these and studying the answers The Routledge International Handbook of Dyscalculia and Mathematical Learning Difficulties is the authoritative volume and is essential reading for academics in the field of mathematics. It is an incredibly important contribution to the study of dyscalculia and mathematical difficulties in children and young adults.

The Routledge International Handbook of Dyscalculia and Mathematical Learning Difficulties Press Reviews

I am convinced that most chapters of The Routledge International Handbook of Dyscalculia and Mathematical Learning Difficulties will serve as far more than a didactic summary of current knowledge in the field. Each chapter is sure to fascinate readers with its wide range of perspectives and leave behind important ideas applicable to the myriad issues in the learning and teaching of mathematics. - Woong Lim, University of New Mexico, Mathematical Association of America
