I have already written about The First Sourcebook on Nordic Research in Mathematics Education, which has now been published (by Information Age Publishing) and is available for purchase. My friend (and the general editor of the book) Professor Bharath Sriraman has recently been on a trip to Norway, and in that connection, a presentation of the book has been published on the website of the University of Agder. The researchers at the University of Agder have made significant contributions to this book, and Professor Simon Goodchild of University of Agder was editor for the Norwegian portion of the book.
The Sourcebook is also in the TMME Monograph series, so be sure to check out the TMME website for more information!
Yesterday, I mentioned John Dewey in my post about the latest issue of Journal of Curriculum Studies. This gave me an idea, and as a result I figured out that it would have been nice to add a work by Dewey in my gem-series. I know, it is not a famous book of mathematics or mathematics education, but Dewey’s theories have had great influence in educational research in general, and also in research in mathematics education. Therefore, I am happy to present today’s gem: “Democracy and Education”, by John Dewey. As usual, you can read it below, or download the pdf. Happy reading!

John Napier (1550-1617) was a Scottish mathematician. He is most famous for having invented logarithms, and today’s featured book is precisely about that. Napier’s book is entitled “The construction of the wonderful canon of logarithms”, and it is an English translation of the original Latin book. The book is available as Flip Book, or you could download the PDF. You could also start reading it below, without leaving this blog 🙂
