Summary

With this seventh volume, as part of the series of yearbooks by the Association of Mathematics Educators in Singapore, we aim to provide a range of learning experiences and teaching strategies that mathematics teachers can judiciously select and adapt in order to deliver effective lessons to their students at the primary to secondary level. Our ultimate goal is to develop successful problem solvers who are able to understand concepts, master fundamental skills, reason logically, apply mathematics, enjoy learning, and strategise their thinking. These qualities will prepare students for life-long learning and careers in the 21st century. 
The materials covered are derived from psychological theories, education praxis, research findings, and mathematics discourse, mediated by the author's professional experiences in mathematics education in four countries over the past four decades. They are organised into ten chapters aligned with the Singapore mathematics curriculum framework to help teachers and educators from Singapore and other countries deepen their understanding about the so-called "Singapore Maths". 
The book strikes a balance between mathematical rigour and pedagogical diversity, without rigid adherence to either. This is relevant to the current discussion about the relative roles of mathematics content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge in effective teaching. It also encourages teachers to develop their own philosophy and teaching styles so that their lessons are effective, efficient, and enjoyable to teach.Contents:Curriculum: Map the Intended, Implemented, and Attained LandscapeConcepts: Build Meanings and ConnectionsSkills: Use Rules EfficientlyProcesses: Sharpen Mathematical Reasoning and Heuristic UseApplications: View the World Through Mathematical LensesICT: Be Its Prudent MasterAttitudes: Energise Learning with Emotional PowerMetacognition: Strategic Use of Cognitive ResourcesSchool Curriculum: Prepare Thoughtful PlansProfessional Development: Become Metacognitive TeachersReadership: Graduate students, researchers, practitioners and teachers in mathematics.Key Features:First, there is currently no mathematics methodology text that provides significant insights about learning and teaching based on the Singapore mathematics curriculum, yet supported by international perspectives and literatureThis fills a gap in the market about Singapore Maths, which has attracted much attention from overseas educatorsSecond, the teaching strategies discussed in the book are based on theories, research, and professional practices, and they satisfy the needs of both practitioners and researchers, hence widening the readership of the bookFinally, the author writes from the vintage point of having taught mathematics education and conducted research in Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia and Singapore and consulted with education institutes in Chile, Hong Kong, the Philippines and the US. This diverse experience allows the author to discuss mathematics education issues from an East-meets-West perspective

    The first in the new Counterpoints series, Think Little is an evergreen, ever-urgent, and now pocket-sized argument for focused and inclusive climate change activism
    Designed and priced for point-of-sale, the Counterpoints series will feature essays, poems, and stories from Wendell Berry, Gary Snyder, Mary Robison, Betty Fussell, MFK Fisher, and many more
    Berry argues that environmental activism and policy change cannot only be a public, large-scale, corporate- and organization-led; instead, changes must happen at the person, individual, and community levels in order for our attempts to slow climate change to be successful. Just as the Civil Rights movement had to become personal, had to be adopted in homes and communities across the country in order to gain momentum and critical mass, so too does environmental activism
    Berry also reminds us that the forces that would exploit people based on their race, gender, and socioeconomic status are the same forces that are content to exploit the earth for its natural resources

    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 
    "If you’ve ever wondered how you have the capacity to wonder, some fascinating insights await you in these pages.” --Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals 
    As concise and enlightening as Seven Brief Lessons on Physics and Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, this mind-expanding dive into the mystery of consciousness is an illuminating meditation on the self, free will, and felt experience. 
    What is consciousness? How does it arise? And why does it exist? We take our experience of being in the world for granted. But the very existence of consciousness raises profound questions: Why would any collection of matter in the universe be conscious? How are we able to think about this? And why should we? 
    In this wonderfully accessible book, Annaka Harris guides us through the evolving definitions, philosophies, and scientific findings that probe our limited understanding of consciousness. Where does it reside, and what gives rise to it? Could it be an illusion, or a universal property of all matter? As we try to understand consciousness, we must grapple with how to define it and, in the age of artificial intelligence, who or what might possess it.  
    Conscious offers lively and challenging arguments that alter our ideas about consciousness—allowing us to think freely about it for ourselves, if indeed we can.
