“This book makes significant contributions to the field of mathematics education in many areas. Its use of oral storytelling as a means of teaching algorithms and problem solving, its presentation of a collaborative teaching model that can be generalized to all mathematics teaching, its presentation of a new perspective on problem solving, enhancing the currently popular approach, and its insights into multicultural mathematics all provide a wealth of knowledge for pre-service and in-service classroom teachers as well as mathematics education instructors.”
“It is very well written. It avoids math education jargon, but at the same time discusses deep issues in the subject. References to the literature are useful and well chosen . . . . The book flows very well. very well. I liked the way of starting with stories and the stories of the classroom lessons. This gives a good foundation for the more theoretical discussions later in the book.”
"Schiro's book proposes the use of fantasy in the teaching of mathematics. Schiro maintains that the fantasy storytelling genre permits the use of mathematical manipulatives, imagery, symbols, diagrams, and algorithms by both the storyteller and the audience, allowing the listener to envision mathematical problems...This is an intriguing book."
“Schiro’s book is a testament to the necessity of a diverse educational background.”
