    This third edition of the Handbook of International Research in Mathematics Education provides a comprehensive overview of the most recent theoretical and practical developments in the field of mathematics education. Authored by an array of internationally recognized scholars and edited by Lyn English and David Kirshner, this collection brings together overviews and advances in mathematics education research spanning established and emerging topics, diverse workplace and school environments, and globally representative research priorities.

    New perspectives are presented on a range of critical topics including embodied learning, the theory-practice divide, new developments in the early years, educating future mathematics education professors, problem solving in a 21st century curriculum, culture and mathematics learning, complex systems, critical analysis of design-based research, multimodal technologies, and e-textbooks. Comprised of 12 revised and 17 new chapters, this edition extends the Handbook’s original themes for international research in mathematics education and remains in the process a definitive resource for the field.

    Lyn D. English is a professor of STEM in education within the Faculty of Education at Queensland University of Technology, Australia. She is a fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia and the founding editor of the international journal Mathematical Thinking and Learning.

    David Kirshner is a professor in the School of Education at Louisiana State University, USA, and co-director of the Gordon A. Cain Center for Scientific, Mathematical, Engineering, and Technological Literacy at that institution.

    "This state of the art handbook reflects a truly international authorship, with comparable scope in topic coverage - with a focus on democratic access, learning contexts, research methods, and the changing technological world. If you want up-to-date scholarship in these areas, this is the source." --Alan Schoenfeld, University of California, Berkeley

    "This handbook provides a comprehensive and topical map of research in mathematics education. It is not only an indispensable resource for those interested in a broad overview of the priorities of the research field, but also provides penetrating analyses of the major developments within those priority issues. The volume brilliantly reflects the dynamics of research topics in mathematics education; change, advance, and transformation constitute the organising principles of the book. Without doubt, the third edition of this handbook is essential reading and a cutting edge reference in the field." --Uwe Gellert, Professor of Mathematics Education, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany
