Forms of Mathematical Knowledge: Learning and Teaching with Understanding



This volume has its origin in the presentations and discussions that occurred in the working group on ‘Forms of Mathematical Knowledge’ of the Eight International Conference on Mathematical Education (ICME8) held in Seville, Spain, in July 1996. The working group was mainly devoted to defining, discussing and contrasting psychological and philosophical issues related to various types of knowledge involved in mathematics learning and teaching (e.g., knowing that, knowing how, knowing why and knowing to; intuitive and analytical; explicit and tacit; elementary and advanced). After the conference the participants felt that issues raised in the working group were significant for the mathematics education community and decided to submit a proposal for a special issue on forms of mathematical knowledge to Educational Studies in Mathematics.
