summary

This book presents the results of extensive research conducted at the Faculty of Education of Charles University by an interdisciplinary team of mathematics instructors, linguists and psychologists. Mathematical word problems are newly viewed here as a form of text, which has its own specific characteristics. The rich sources of research data available allowed the identification of the main critical points of pupils' solutions in terms of linguistics and mathematics, but also in terms of their mutual synergistic interaction. The scholars provide a number of new answers to the questions teachers ask themselves when confronted by pupils' concerns about word problems and their failures to solve them. The book is intended not only for scholars in the didactics of mathematics, but also for teachers of mathematics and their educators. The results of the presented research will also be useful for designers of mathematical tests and textbook authors.
