This book investigates problem solving approaches to mathematical problems that youngsters use in the wake of the growing availability of digital technologies, and how these approaches can be effective and productive for their unique needs. The empirical research, conducted in the Problem@Web project, delves into the many ways in which students can achieve the solution to a mathematical problem and communicate it with the technological tools they have at their disposal, either in their home environment or in their mathematics classroom. The researchers then address the implications for the future study of a broadened perspective on mathematical problem solving with technology. In addition to exploring how technology has changed mathematical problem solving, the book also provides:
Youngsters Solving Mathematical Problems with Technology is an extremely valuable resource for any researcher or educator interested in mat
hematics education, technology in education, or the intersection of both.>“I enjoyed reading the book and I enjoyed my time solving the problems also by putting myself in young students’ shoes. I can see the benefit of using these problems as well as the suggested solutions in secondary mathematics problem-solving activities. I am planning to use some of these problems (and suggested solutions) with undergraduate, graduate and teacher students as a trigger for a discussion on problem-solving also with digital environments.” (Irene Biza, Research in Mathematics Education, Vol. 19 (3), 2018)
“This book is an extensive summary/report of a three year project where schoolchildren were given problems to solve outside the usual classroom problems. … this study is invaluable in giving modern mathematical educators insights into adapting modern pedagogical techniques to reflect how young people solve problems. … all will find something that they can use to improve the effectiveness of their teaching.” (Charles Ashbacher, MAA Reviews, maa.org, May, 2016)
