Mathematics as a Constructive Activity: Learners G&hellip by Anne Watson
This is a powerfull book for on duty teachers but not so much for prospective ones. The authors build upon the theory of example construction which is quite rewarding for young students. I would definitely recomend it if you are a math teacher. It has a fair price, the theory is relatively accessible and the intervention of real class-but not demanding-examples makes it interesting. the authors claim that its a widespread "theory" from lower level to higher levels of math education, a point well made but a bit optimistic and slightly ambiguous. At the moment, I d limit my reccomendation to up to gcse level math teachers. The point here is that as you move on to a higher level of education… Read more
Protocol Analysis: Verbal Reports as Data (Bradfor&hellip by K Anders Ericsson

if you need to learn about protocol analysis for your research-dissertation-thesis this is the book to start with. protocol analysis appeals to a wide range of researchers so regardless your sector it's nice to know a little bit about it. the book is accessible (i won't say easily cause that's kind of subjective and depends on your background)and it has a fair price. if you go for the paperback be prepared, it a big book so just treat it with care (as any other paperback!) and it will survive! i recommend that you risk it and go for a used one which at the moment has almost half the price of the new. usually these books are bought by students or researchers that need them all the way… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, 21 Mar 2013
This is one of the best teachers' textbook. it contains a great number of problems, some of which i ve used in students' math contests lessons and problem solving sessions. what i think is a disadvantage for this book is the lack of a detailed solutions manual which makes it a bit difficult for students' self study. i do know that mason and his collegues are sceptical on this, but i think that they should revisit this one. Nevertheless i ll give five stars cause its one of my favourites. i promise i ll be more strict in the future!!
ps. if you are a researcher, interested in the theory upon which this book was created, you should search for mason's preliminary work on the 80's, there… Read more
