  • a court doing making a decision on math textbooks and curriculum?

  • The evidence concerning one possible basis for the poor mathematical performance of United States students, was the content of the textbooks used in their classes

  • At the elementary-school level, it appears that Japanese math textbooks are poised to become an increasingly common sight in classrooms around the world. Japanese math textbooks now are being popular even in the United States and Singapore. It has been translated into English and other languages and are gaining popularity.

    Japan possesses high standards of basic math education and their textbooks that are rich in content. The textbook publishers are nevertheless pleased to see that their efforts are contributing to the improvement of instruction in arithmetic around the world.

    The main reason behind the popularity of Japanese textbooks abroad is that they explain the underlying concepts needed to solve mathematical problems, while other math textbooks only contain superficial content that often overlaps between grade levels and focuses on memorizing information and completing exercises.

    Proponents of math education reform in the US have shown strong interest in the Japanese approach. One math education expert points out that the teaching materials currently receiving acclaim outside Japan do not go beyond the level of basic arithmetic.

  • The results of a detailed analysis of Japanese and U.S. mathematics textbooks for grades 1 through 12

    The study concludes that material contained in the Japanese elementary school textbooks is somewhat more advanced than in the U.S. texts and concepts and skills are likely to appear earlier in Japanese textbooks.

    The study discusses an analysis of secondary school textbooks in the United States and Japan. The paper concludes that U.S. textbooks may form an obstacle to the learning of mathematics because they are long, wordy, and repetitive.

    Over 70% of the document contain exhaustive summaries of the contents of the Japanese and U.S. elementary and secondary mathematics textbooks chosen for the study, arranged by concept and skill.

  • Many contents of these math text books were overlapped and repeated from previous grades to upper grades.

    Topics were highly repetitive.

    Approximately 20% of the contents were new and introduced into upper grade levels. 80% of the contents were re-taught from previous grades

    It was found that the Chinese math textbooks covered fewer topics than the U.S. math textbooks for the same grade

  • Continued

    US 7th and 8th grade students were still learning basic arithmetic such as fractions, decimals, order of four operations, where Chinese students of the same grade moved on to algebra and geometry and trigonometry topics because the writer looked into Chinese mathematics textbooks from 6th grade to 8th grade

    Chinese math textbooks would be compiled on the basis of these uniform standards/curricula even if each state wanted to have her own edition of mathematics textbooks because a coherent set of national standards/curriculum would help students gain their desirable academic achievement results

  • dbook is a tool for developing digital textbooks.

    Digital textbooks can be created by importing existing textbooks as image files.

    Furthermore, interactive drawing tools can be embedded in the digital textbooks.

    The textbook data together with the drawing tools can be used interactively in classrooms

  • Using e-textbook with Interactive Board in Math classroom (Isoda et al. 2005)
