Quantitative Reasoning in Mathematics and Science Education

Gülseren Karagöz Akar

This book focuses on quantitative reasoning as an orienting framework to analyse learning, teaching and curriculum in mathematics and science education. Quantitative reasoning plays a vital role in learning concepts foundational to arithmetic, algebra, calculus, geometry, trigonometry and other ideas in STEM. The book draws upon the importance of quantitative reasoning and its crucial role in education. It particularly delves into quantitative reasoning related to the learning and teaching diverse mathematics and science concepts, conceptual analysis of mathematical and scientific ideas and analysis of school mathematics (K-16) curricula in different contexts. We believe that it can be considered as a reference book to be used by researchers, teacher educators, curriculum developers and pre- and in-service teachers.
