For the Teaching of Mathematics Volume 1


For the Teaching of Mathematics Volume 1


For the Teaching of Mathematics is a collection of articles written by Caleb Gattegno and published in various journals between 1947 and 1963.  The articles cover a range of topics related to the teaching of mathematics, including general pedagogical ideas, psychological contributions, and the teaching of elementary school mathematics. This series is indispensable for those wanting to understand the genesis of Gattegno’s break-through proposition that a Science of Education is possible, and that awareness should be its object of study.

Volume One discusses generating a child-centered point of view in the classroom, better incorporating how a child learns, and using mistakes as learning aids. Gattegno presents concrete arithmetic examples, while emphasizing the need for play. The second part of this volume focuses on pedagogical discussion, including reformation in mathematics education, and social influences and factors.
