 Publisher's Summary
 This Encyclopedia is a singlevolume reference work for readers and researchers investigating national and international aspects of mathematics education at the elementary, secondary and postsecondary 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.
