The Elements of Creativity and Giftedness in Mathematics


Volume Editors: and
The Elements of Creativity and Giftedness in Mathematics, edited by Bharath Sriraman and KyeongHwa Lee, covers recent advances in mathematics education pertaining to the development of creativity and giftedness.
The book is international in scope in the “sense” that it includes numerous studies on mathematical creativity and giftedness conducted in the U. S. A, China, Korea, Turkey, Israel, Sweden, and Norway in addition to cross-national perspectives from Canada and Russia. The topics include problem -posing, problem-solving and mathematical creativity; the development of mathematical creativity with students, pre and in-service teachers; cross-cultural views of creativity and giftedness; the unpacking of notions and labels such as high achieving, inclusion, and potential; as well as the theoretical state of the art on the constructs of mathematical creativity and giftedness. The book also includes some contributions from the first joint meeting of the American Mathematical Society and the Korean Mathematical Society in Seoul, 2009. Topics covered in the book are essential reading for graduate students and researchers interested in researching issues and topics within the domain of mathematical creativity and mathematical giftedness. It is also accessible to pre-service and practicing teachers interested in developing creativity in their classrooms, in addition to professional development specialists, mathematics educators, gifted educators, and psychologists.

“Makes an important contribution to the body of literature on giftedness and creativity in mathematics. The most notable virtue of this book is that conclusions were based on empirical studies and deeply ensconced in literature …. The terminology used in the book is not technical, and one need not be an expert in gifted education or creativity research to use and interpret the data and findings. A particularly strong component of the book is the quality of the literature reviews presented in many chapters … Most consumers of this book will have a penchant for and interest in mathematics, giftedness, and/or creativity, but this book is equally interesting for novice and expert scholars in the field of creativity and giftedness in mathematics. The editors have taken painstaking effort to address many of the holes in the research outlined in previous books and thereby allowed additional questions to surface. The end product is a work that is an informative and useful resource for those seeking to understand current research on creativity and giftedness in mathematics.” - in: Journal for Research in Mathematics Education (NCTM) 44.5 (November 2013)
