Published by World Scientific , Singapore London Seller Rating:. Joanna Messing: "We looked at the American mathematics program and American scores, and it was underwhelming to say the least. Dominic Nicholas: "[Our son] had some natural proclivity for math, and we wanted to have him reach his maximal potential. And it didn't feel like that was necessarily going to happen in public school. Rafael Irizarry: "Our biggest fear was that she would think math was boring and not interesting and not like it, and Russian math has saved us from that.
They were "not just sets of problems but also deep explanations," Gerovitch says, helpful references if students couldn't understand classroom work.
Itina, at the Studio of Engaging Math, helped write some of those Russian textbooks, and now enlivens and adapts that material for children in Brighton. She says math inevitably involves some work — just as playing an instrument requires practice — but the key to teaching math to kids is to understand that they can work well only if they're emotionally invested.

So a typical math problem at the studio might involve the geometry of a princess' castle, says Itina's daughter, Anya, who teaches there. Here's the irony: To Americans, she teaches "Russian math," but as the product of real Russian schools, she can see how dramatically "Russian" teaching in this country differs from back in the USSR. For example, in contrast to big Russian classes at regimented desks, the studio teaches only in small groups of a half-dozen children around a table.
And it divides the groups by ability levels, so it might have five or six different leveled groups for children who are all in the same grade at school. At a recent Studio of Engaging Math class for kindergartners, the students solve some basic addition and subtraction problems on paper, but also a harder puzzle that teacher Elina Starobinets presents on the chalkboard:. The kids figure out right away that the triangles have to be 8 and so the circle has to be 4, but Starobinets pushes them a little further:. Right, Starobinets affirms.
Sonia has just derived the principle that it's best to solve equations with only one unknown.
At age 6. The rise of Russian math classes can pose challenges for American schools. Some teachers find Russian math may also make some kids overconfident about how well they understand a math topic, says Steven Rattendi, the chair of the math department at Newton South High School. But Russian math also seems to be helping to expand the pool of American kids who are comfortable with math. This anthology, consisting of two volumes, is intended to equip background researchers, practitioners and students of international mathematics education with intimate knowledge of mathematics education in Russia.
Volume I, entitled Russian Mathematics Education: History and World Significance, consists of several chapters written by distinguished authorities from Russia, the United States and other nations.
- The Dictionary of Strum and Picking Patterns?
- Scapegoat: Targeted for Blame.
- Intention, Plans, and Practical Reason.
It examines the history of mathematics education in Russia and its relevance to mathematics education throughout the world. The second volume, entitled Russian Mathematics Education: Programs and Practices will examine specific Russian programs in mathematics, their impact and methodological innovations. Although Russian mathematics education is highly respected for its achievements and was once very influential internationally, it has never been explored in depth.
