Mathematics the science of patterns written by keith devlin published by scientific america library was a refreshing read. At pages it took me about 3 weeks to read on and off although if I calculate total time it took to read this probably happened in a four or five day span/5.

This highly illustrated book draws together the wide variety of studies in the learning of mathematics undertaken by the Pattern in Mathematics Research Group at the University of Leeds.

Their purpose has been ' to provide structure and support to studies of children's perception, conception and use of pattern in learning mathematics'.5/5(2). mathematics tasks and problems that evoke significant mathematics and motivate students to discuss their mathematical thinking.

Because mathematics is so often conveyed in symbols, oral and written communication about mathematical ideas is not always recognized as an important part of mathematics education. Students do not necessarily talk about mathematics naturally; teachers need to help them learn how to do so (Cobb, Wood, and Yackel, ).
