The book presents a selection of the most relevant talks given at the 21st MAVI conference, held at the Politecnico di Milano. The first section is dedicated to classroom practices and beliefs regarding those practices, taking a look at prospective or practicing teachers' views of different practices such as decision-making, the roles of explanations, problem-solving, patterning, and the use of play. Of major interest to MAVI participants is the relationship between teachers' professed beliefs and classroom practice, aspects that provide the focus of the second section. Three papers deal with teacher change, which is notoriously difficult, even when the teachers themselves are interested in changing their practice. In turn, the book's third section centers on the undercurrents of teaching and learning mathematics, which can surface in various situations, causing tensions and inconsistencies. The last section of this book takes a look at emerging themes in affect-related research, with a particular focus on attitudes towards assessment. The book offers a valuable resource for all teachers and researchers working in this area.

Domenico Brunetto is a young researcher at the Mathematics Department, Polytechnic of Milan. His research interests are: the usage of multimedia (especially MOOCs) in classroom practice, the interaction between students in small and large groups, and network analysis. His current research project analyses and models student interaction...

Editorial Reviews

"Teaching and Learning in Maths Classrooms . is an important book, as it presents a variety of emerging issues in the affective domain of mathematics education. . I recommend this book to researchers in an early stage of their career, those who need a fresh perspective towards affect-related research and those looking to learn more from various research designs and analyses." (Woong Lim, MAA Reviews, October, 2017)
