Free Math Education Materials from IAE
Many of the IAE materials focus on math education, computers in math education, and brain science as it relates to math education. This IAE-pedia document lists some of the IAE math-related materials that are available for free download from the Web. 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.

Books from IAE
I (Dave Moursund) have a doctorate in mathematics. During my teaching career, I taught Mathematics, Computer & Information Science, and Teacher Education. In addition, I studied Brain Science beginning in about 1985. All of my IAE writings reflect my interests in these four areas.
My colleague Bob Albrecht has spent his entire career working in the combined fields of math and computers. My colleague Bob Sylwester has spent most of his career working in the field of brain science in education. Free IAE books by these three authors can be accessed at:
