Mobile Learning and Mathematics provides an overview of current research on how mobile devices are supporting mathematics educators in classrooms across the globe.
Through nine case studies, chapter authors investigate the use of mobile technologies over a range of grade levels and mathematical topics, while connecting chapters provide a strong foundational background in mobile learning theories, instructional design, and learner support.
For current educators, Mobile Learning and Mathematics provides concrete ideas and strategies for integrating mobile learning into their mathematics instruction—for example, by sharing resources that will help implement Common Core State Standards, or by streamlining the process of selecting from the competing and often confusing technology options currently available. A cutting edge research volume, this collection also provides a springboard for educational researchers to conduct further study.

John Traxler & Helen Crompton
Helen Crompton is Assistant Professor of Instructional Technology at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, USA.
John Traxler is Professor of Mobile Learning at the University of Wolverhampton, UK, where he also directs the Learning Lab.
"The data is clear: students want to use their mobile devices for learning in school. Crompton and Traxler show you how. Teachers will find this book absolutely accessible—there are "take-aways" that can be used in the classroom tomorrow. Principals: buy this book for your K-12 math teachers. They will thank you."
Cathie Norris, high school math teacher and Regents Professor, Department of Learning Technologies, University of North Texas, USA
"Crompton and Traxler have set a very high bar with the first substantive book on the use of mobile devices in mathematics instruction! This is the book with which mobile math researchers must start and to which educators will come for ideas. Its eighteen diverse chapters are chock-full of the latest ideas in mobile mathematics learning."
Elliot Soloway, Arthur F. Thurnau Professor, CSE Department, University of Michigan, USA
"Mobile technologies are ubiquitous and will transform math learning. These authors act as inspiring and thoughtful guides, setting down a strong foundation."
Jere Confrey, Joseph D. Moore Distinguished University Professor, North Carolina State University, USA
