# ON SOME MEASURE THEORY TEXTBOOKS AND THEIR USE BY SOME PROFESSORS IN GRADUATE-LEVEL COURSES

@inproceedings{Sidokhine2013ONSM, title={ON SOME MEASURE THEORY TEXTBOOKS AND THEIR USE BY SOME PROFESSORS IN GRADUATE-LEVEL COURSES}, author={Felix Sidokhine}, year={2013} }

Previous research has reported on students' uses of mathematics textbooks at pre-university and undergraduate levels. Also, some research has been done on textbooks as standalone objects, looking at their format and didactic and mathematical discourses. However, very few researchers have investigated instructors' uses of textbooks. In this thesis we do so at the graduate level; in particular, we investigate one instructor's account of his use of a textbook and two mathematics professors' views…

The modelling of the type and frequency of `Facts’ in Abstract Algebra techniques appears to be novel; whereas `Explanation’ has been considered in previous literature at least in the particular instance of proof.
