This handbook for teachers will help them broaden and enrich their students' mathematical education. It avoids specifying how to teach, and focuses instead on the central principles and concepts that need to be borne in mind by all teachers.

The emergence of powerful mathematical computing environments, the growing availability of correspondingly powerful computers and the pervasive presence of the internet allow for mathematicians to proceed heuristically and quasi-inductively.

A clear need exists for improvement in mathematics proficiency in US schools. While the federal government have made significant investments toward improving mathematics education, the knowledge base supporting these efforts has generally been weak.
This book focuses on primary school mathematics for students, whether children or adults. It is assumed that no calculators are used, to encourage mental arithmetic. This course uses as much lay language as possible to also be helpful to parents.
