About the Author

Mike Askew is Professor of Mathematics Education at Wits University, Johannesburg, South Africa, having also been a Professor at King's College London University, UK, and Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.


"Askew's book provides a fresh take on a difficult topic; namely, teaching elementary school mathematics. This well-researched book uses multiple theoretical lenses and copious references to relevant research to guide the reader to an approach that makes elementary school mathematics "something [children] want to pursue beyond what they are required to do ... Askew employs numerous examples from his own experience to elucidate the underpinnings of his arguments. Recommended for upper-division elementary education students, as well as any faculty member with an interest in mathematics education."

- R. M. Fischer, Montana State University
