Abstract

The following text reviews the book Teaching Mathematics Online: Emergent Technologies and Methodologies, recently published by IGI Global. This book brings together experiences and best practices related to the use of Web-based and computer-based methodologies to teach and learn mathematics courses in higher education. Although there is a plethora of books on e-learning and also a considerable amount of books on mathematics learning in secondary education, this is — as far as we know — the first book combining e-learning and mathematical education at the university level. Thus, it constitutes a basic reference for academics and practitioners of this constantly emerging field.

Resumen

El siguiente texto es una reseña del libro Teaching Mathematics Online: Emergent Technologies and Methodologies, publicado recientemente por IGI Global. En él se han reunido una serie de experiencias y mejores prácticas relacionadas con el uso de metodologías basadas en internet y en sistemas informáticos que tienen por objeto la enseñanza y el aprendizaje de las matemáticas en el ciclo educativo superior. Pese a la gran cantidad de libros existentes sobre e-learning y la abundancia de obras referidas a la enseñanza de las matemáticas en el ciclo educativo secundario, este es -que sepamos- el primer libro que combina e-learning y enseñanza de las matemáticas a un nivel universitario. Así pues, nos hallamos ante una referencia básica para entornos tanto académicos como profesionales de esta disciplina en constante evolución.
