Written to provide classroom teachers access to the many worthwhile findings resulting from educational, psychological, and sociological research studies done in Europe and the United States, this book is a ready and easy reference for mathematics teachers. It consists of four chapters, each presenting a collection of teaching tips. It is an important first step in bringing educational research findings to the practitioners they were intended to help.
