Book Display: Teach Mathematics?

So, what's a good topic for a book display to follow "pirates"?

Maths, obviously.

Here at the Eddie Koiki Mabo Library we've put together a small display on Mathematics in Education (teaching maths at a primary, middle and high school level). We've got a few of our print journals on display, as well as some of our prettier books.

Yes, we chose the items based on how pretty they were, but you can find plenty of good information and useful tips, tools and exercises in the not-so-pretty books and journals that are still on the shelves.

You'll find them at 372.7 and 510.7 (keep following the numbers, they start at .7 and keep going to .8).

We'd also like to direct your attention towards some of our eJournals on the topic, like:

Educational Studies in Mathematics,

Mathematics Teacher Education and Development (MTED),

and

Numeracy: Advancing Education in Quantitative Literacy

We've got more. You should head over to our catalogue and look for Mathematics -- Study and teaching -- Periodicals

While you're at it, you could try dropping the "periodicals" part of that search to find books as well, or switching it for "australia" to find works specific to maths teaching in the Australian context.

Oh, and there are also some resources for use in the classroom over in the Curriculum Collection.

Happy hunting.
