Ma, an independent scholar who has worked at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and was a former elementary teacher in China, outlines the nature and development of the knowledge that elementary teachers in the US need to become effective math teachers and why such knowledge seems more common in China, despite their less formal education. She interviewed groups of American and Chinese teachers about four math topics and compare their responses here, arguing that Chinese teachers start with a better understanding of fundamental math. This edition has a new preface and series editor's introduction, a journal article examining the impact of the book, and a response by the author, who originally based the book on her doctoral dissertation.
