Free Math Education Materials from Information Age Education
This IAE Blog entry provides an introduction to the following IAE-pedia document:
Moursund, D. (2012). Free Math Education Materials. Retrieved 10/26/2012 from http://iae-pedia.org/Free_Math_Education_Materials.
Many of the free IAE materials focus on math education, computers in math education, and brain science as it relates to math education. These are written for preservice teachers, inservice teachers, and teachers of teachers. Some are also of possible interest to parents of students who are currently in school.
The IAE-pedia document listed above provides titles and hot links to four categories of IAE math-related books and other publications available for free downloading. The following sections provide examples from each of the four categories.
