    The social status of mathematical study was improving by the seventeenth century, with the University of Aberdeen creating a Mathematics Chair in , followed by the Chair in Geometry being set up in University of Oxford in and the Lucasian Chair of Mathematics being established by the University of Cambridge in Recent Book.

      Many findings from research as well as reports from teachers describe students’ problem solving strategies as manipulation of formulas by rote. The resulting dissatisfaction with quantitative physical textbook problems seems to influence the attitude towards the role of mathematics in physics education in general. Mathematics is often seen as a tool for calculation which hinders a conceptual Cited by: Following the small-group discussions on the preworkshop assignment from Liping Ma's book Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics (), a panel set the stage for thinking about the two overarching questions that were the focus of the workshop. What is the mathematical knowledge teachers need to know to teach well?

One should expect a writer of a book on methods of teaching mathematics to have these two qualities himself before seeking to instruct future teachers on the second matter (the pedagogical problem), even if he leaves the first (the mathematical theory of irrationality) to professors of mathematics itself.

Creativity in the mathematics classroom is not just about what pupils do but also what we do as teachers. If we are thinking creatively about the mathematical experiences we offer our pupils we can open up opportunities for them to be creative. Jennifer Piggott shares some of her thoughts on creative teaching, and how it can encourage creative learners.
