Dear list members,

may I draw your attention to a recently published report

* Literature on Special Educational Needs in Mathematics *

by Olof Magne.

This report (2nd edition) presents the findings of a survey of about 5 000
documents on low achievement in mathematics that have been published in one
form or another during a long time (since 1886 up to now). This is probably
the most extensive bibliograhy on special educational needs in mathematics.
It contains references not only in English, German, French, Swedish and
other Scaninavian languages, but also from Hungarian, Slovakian and other

Professor Magne is a former president of EASE (European Association for
Special Education) and retired since the middle of the 1980s.
