How do our students deal with activities involving mathematics? What procedures do they use to solve problems? What factors could have a bearing on the difficulty or ease with which they solve mathematical tasks?
These are some of the questions to which a group of specialists in the assessment and teaching of mathematics convened by the Latin American Laboratory for Assessment of the Quality of Education (LLECE) replies in Contributions to the Teaching of Mathematics.
Based on the results of the Second Regional Comparative and Explanatory Study (SERCE), conducted in sixteen countries and one Mexican state, this book analyses and synthesises the achievements and difficulties experienced by children of Latin America and the Caribbean in connection with this subject.
In harmony with the objectives of LLECE, which assists the countries of the region in their efforts to diagnose and improve the quality of education, the authors, using accessible language and presenting clear proposals, explain the theoretical and practical elements that can help teachers strengthen and improve their teaching practices to achieve good learning results in mathematics.
