The rationale remains the samea€“to enable prospective and current teachers to access and use tools and strategies to effectively teach mathematics to contemporary students. Changing demographics, knowledge of how people learn, and technology all impact the way we educate our young people.

Research citations and summaries have been updated to reflect current information on teaching and learning.
