Author:Richard Dahlke
Description: A study and reference book based on the notion that "learning is best achieved when student and instructor roles are mutually supportive and based on sound learning principles." Drawing on educational psychology, pedagogical research, learning technologies, measurement and evaluation, reading and writing in content areas, and models of learning, thinking, and problem solving, the first page of the book introduces "Two Fundamental Student Deficiencies that Affect Student Performance" and goes on to include sections such as "College Board Advanced Placement Program in Mathematics," "Judicious Use of Study Time," "Evolution of Mathematics," "Changing Beliefs, Attitudes, and Study Methods," "Reading Proofs of Theorems," "Common Errors Using Symbolic Notation," "Awarding Partial Credit to Solutions of Problems," "Solving Problems at Various Cognitive Levels of Thought," "Participating in a Mathematics Study Group," "Remembering Mathematics," and "Making the Decision to Enroll in an Online Course." Read reviews; see the table of contents, index, and selected exercises from the accompanying assignment manual; and more. Having taught math in high school and at the University of Michigan - Dearborn and State University of New York - Buffalo, Dahlke has also chaired the Michigan Council of Teachers of Mathematics (MCTM).
