Description

For Mathematics Methods in Elementary School courses.

The first methods textbook to show readers how NCTM Principles and Standards drive mathematics instruction is now the first to take you right into the math classroom to examine children’s reasoning and see its implications for teaching.  This thoroughly revised edition illustrates how to create a learner-centered classroom that allows the reader to nurture a child’s ability to communicate mathematical thinking and link that knowledge to developmentally appropriate teaching practices. A strong focus on NCTM Standards, developing tools for teaching, and its manageable length ensures readers will use this book as a reference well into their first years of teaching.
