Applicable to all levels of schooling, the book covers basic topics such as planning and assessment, classroom management, and organization of classroom experiences- it also introduces some novel approaches to teaching mathematics, such as psychoanalytic perspectives and post-modern conceptions of curriculum. Traditional methods-of-teaching issues are recast in a new discourse, provoking new ideas for making mathematics education meaningful to teachers as well as their students. Co-authored by a professor and coordinator of mathematics education programs, with several practicing elementary, middle and high school mathematics, a unique aspect of this book is that it is a collaboration of teachers across all pre-college grade levels, making it ideal for discussion groups that include teachers at any level.Embracing Mathematics integrates pedagogy and content exploration in ways that are unique in mathematics education.

It features textboxes with reflection questions and suggested explorations that can be easily utilized as homework for a course or as discussion opportunities for teacher reading groups. It offers examples of teachers action research projects that grew out of their interactions with the main chapters in the book is not narrowly limited to mathematics education but incorporates curriculum studies - an invaluable asset that allows instructors to find more ways to engage students in self-reflexive acts of teaching.
