"All the articles taken together add up to a strong argument in favor of making symbolizing and communicating prominent features in mathematics classrooms. Arguments are well illustrated....A good resource for teacher educators and graduate students who are interested in the interrelationship between semiotic theories and mathematical understanding."
-CHOICE"...offers literacy educators another way to view mathematics....ways to think about literacy in mathematics classrooms....[and] provides literacy researchers insights into the kind of questions that are important to mathematics education researchers, which can be helpful as literacy educators work to consider problems and questions that cross educational domains....This book ultimately offers to literacy educators an insight into terms like symbolizing, modeling, mathematizing, and representation as used by mathematics educators. By understanding these terms and considering the implications for instructional design, literacy educators can begin building bridges between themselves and mathematics educators."
-Journal of Literacy Research
