Synopsis: This volume focuses on two related questions that are central to both the psychology of mathematical thinking and learning and to the improvement of mathematics education:
What is the nature of arithmetic expertise?
How can instruction best promote it?

Contributors from a variety of specialities, including cognitive, developmental, educational, and neurological psychology; mathematics education; and special education offer theoretical perspectives and much needed empirical evidence about these issues.

As reported in this volume, both theory and research indicate that the nature of arithmetic expertise and how to best promote it are far more complex than conventional wisdom and many scholars, past and present, have suggested. The results of psychological, educational, and clinical studies using a wide range of arithmetic tasks and populations (including "normally" and atypically developing children, non-injured and brain-injured adults, and savants) all point to the same conclusion: The heart of arithmetic fluency, in general, and the flexible and creative use of strategies, in particular, is what is termed "adaptive expertise" (meaningful or conceptually based knowledge). The construction of adaptive expertise in mathematics is, for the first time, examined across various arithmetic topics and age groups.

This book will be an invaluable resource for researchers and graduate students interested in mathematical cognition and learning (including mathematics educators, developmental and educational psychologists, and neuropsychologists), educators (including teachers, curriculum supervisors, and school administrators), and others interested in improving arithmetic instruction (including officials in national and local education departments, the media, and parents).

Review:

This is a valuable and important collection....Highly recommended

CHOICE

The Development of Arithmetic Concepts and Skills: Constructing Adaptive Expertise is a very informative book about the important construct of adaptive expertise in education and the everyday life: The ability to use knowledge flexibly. This book will be of much appeal to people who are interested in theoretical, methodological, and applied educational issues related to the development of flexible arithmetic reasoning and beyond.

Contemporary Psychology

The editors A.J. Baroody and A. Dowker have made a great job organising the materials. This will become a classical book on arithmetic concepts and skills.
