Refractions Of Mathematics Education
Author: Christer Bergsten
Publisher: IAP
Release Date: 2015-05-01
Pages: 239
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The diversity of research in mathematics education has been addressed as both, a problem and a strength. When manifested through adherence to different intellectual roots and theoretical orientations, diversions constitute ‘refractions’ of mathematics education. The collection and analysis of empirical data in a study are by necessity refracted through the specific analytical lens employed, as well as the aim of the study itself. Refractions can also refer to looking at old phenomena through new lenses. The chapters in this book are refracted through philosophical, political, mathematical and personal lenses by distinguished authors in the field, addressing issues about the elusive experience of doing mathematics, purification of texts, refractions, mathematics and ethnomathematics, political messages in textbook tasks, mathematics education policy debate, the political in mathematics education research, philosophy and mathematics, meanings and representations, identity of mathematical modeling, and dilemmas in the teaching of calculus. An ancient Sanskrit adage states that Knowledge is something that grows when shared, but shrinks when hoarded. Academics engaged in the generation of new Knowledge are blessed with both the time and the freedom to engage in pursuits that allow for intellectual pleasure. As a phenomenon of the Zeitgeist many have succumbed to the increased corporatization of academic work, engaging in activities for monetary and self advancement purposes. Are there any real intellectuals left in academia, a là Adorno, Bourdieu, Chomsky, Foucault, among others? This Festschrift is dedicated to academics that don't bother with self promotion or aggrandizement of themselves or their ideas in simplistic terms.

Midwest Refractions
Author: Jay Scott Diers
Publisher: Lulu.com
Release Date: 2006-03
Pages: 84
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Boys from Iowa and the Midwest grow tall, burly, and handsome in a way only Midwest boys can. Jay uses models (some professional, some amateur) to transport the viewer to the "Midwest" of innocence, purity, and the wholesomeness for which Middle America is known. It is the artist's desire to portray the Midwest as a unique place where one can find men doing farm chores during the day and going to a rave at night. A place that, with the Midwest stamp on it, gives you the boy next door who scores the touchdown, dates the prom queen (though is secretly in love with the tight end) and has a heart bigger than the whole state.
