Book Description

People who learn to solve problems 'on the job' often use different methods from people who learn in theory. Using a case study of Brazilian street children, this book examines the differences between the street mathematics they use in markets and mathematics they learn in school. The authors also discuss ways of trying to put theory and practice together in mathematics teaching.
