Present Research on Mathematics Textbooks and Teachers’ Resources in ICME-13: Conclusion and Perspectives

Part of the ICME-13 Monographs book series (ICME13Mo)

Abstract

This chapter summarizes and discusses the state of the art of research on mathematics textbooks and other resources and their use as depicted in this volume. The discussion focuses on three questions: First, what are the theoretical and methodological tools used in order to conceptualize and investigate textbook and resource use? Second, what can we learn about the use of textbooks and resources by teachers from the chapters in this volume? Third, what do we learn from comparing teachers-resources interactions across different countries? Based on the discussion, conclusions are drawn regarding perspectives of future research on mathematics textbooks and resources and their use.
