The four sections in this Third International Handbook are concerned with: (a) social, political and cultural dimensions in mathematics education; (b) mathematics education as a field of study; (c) technology in the mathematics curriculum; and (d) international perspectives on mathematics education. These themes are taken up by 84 internationally-recognized scholars, based in 26 different nations. Each of section is structured on the basis of past, present and future aspects. The first chapter in a section provides historical perspectives (aHow did we get to where we are now?a); the middle chapters in a section analyze present-day key issues and themes (aWhere are we now, and what recent events have been especially significant?a); and the final chapter in a section reflects on policy matters (aWhere are we going, and what should we do?a).
