Introduction

In an era of ever-emerging issues, globalization and innovations have been instrumental in educational progression. Globalization is a dynamic and multifaceted construct and therefore education, particularly mathematics education, cannot be assumed to remain the same during these emergencies. Globalization has influenced and impacted on mathematics education in curriculum development, implementation, assessment, proficiency, administration, and research. In its multifaceted form, globalization explores how culture, language, global migration, equity, equality, access, inclusion, ethical issues, technological advancements, climate change education, gender issues, collaborations and exchange programs, pedagogical policies and practices, theories and in fact process of theorizing, models, and teacher training. For example, with globalization, classrooms have become more diverse: different cultures bring varied perspectives on mathematics, which can influence teaching strategies and curriculum development. Educators now strive to incorporate culturally relevant examples and teaching methods into mathematics education to cater for diverse student populations. Globalization also affords space for comparative studies of mathematics education across the globe thereby benchmarking for best practices and learning from challenges. Reporting of issues in mathematics education through local and international media influences the report consumers on the subject. In the recent past, there have been increased innovations in mathematics education pertaining to instruction, assessment, and resources necessary in classrooms. While the innovations may help to improve students’ classroom participation and performance in mathematics, there are issues of incorporating the innovations in policies, curricula, and actual practice. The innovations may also be in conflict with some cultures and hence their identity. The publication "Impacts of Globalization and Innovation in Mathematics Education" therefore, delves into the multifaceted impacts of globalization and innovations in the field of mathematics education.

Objective

The objectives of the book "Impacts of Globalization and Innovation in Mathematics Education" are to: .Inform on global trends: With the cross cutting research expected, the book shall inform on global trends and in fact regional and local trends in mathematics education that have been influenced by globalization and innovations .Provide insights: The book will provide knowledge and insights into how globalization and innovations have impacted on mathematics education. .Provide analysis: An in-depth analysis of local, regional, and global practices in and out of the mathematics classrooms will be analysed hence providing for best practices, challenges and opportunities. .Inform future research: The cross cutting findings from the chapters shall help identify research gaps, contestations and even agreements on impacts of globabalization and innovations in mathematics education and hence prompt further research. The book will contribute to knowledge development in mathematics education in the light of globalization and innovation in the field.

Target Audience

The book is intended for mathematics and science researchers, educators, postgraduate students and teachers. Curriculum developers and investors in mathematics projects, innovators, and industry will also find the book handy.
