This Encyclopedia is a single-volume reference work for readers and researchers investigating national and international aspects of mathematics education at the elementary, secondary and post-secondary levels. It consists of more than 400 entries, arranged alphabetically by headings of greatest pertinence to mathematics education. The volume also gives users a starting point for in depth research and fills a gap as there is no other volume that unites major aspects (concepts, pedagogy and history) of mathematics education.
