Practical help for connecting what students already know about mathematics to what they need to know–and improving learning and recall.

This new guide uses an approach that emphasizes the premise that effective mathematics teaching promotes understanding–and understanding provides sound bases for skill development and better retention of material. It gives teachers of mathematics a variety lesson plans and learning activities that include: a more complete development of mathematical ideas, visuals to support mental imagery, opportunities for kinesthetic learning activities, opportunities for children to communicate their understanding of mathematics, and continual opportunities for the monitoring of student learning.

With this guide, teaching mathematics is made more effective through straightforward, easy-to-use lesson plans and learning activities that illustrate specific mathematical concepts and skills, ideas for using visuals to develop mental imagery, and ways to promote active student learning using movement and student discussion. The development of the content is user-friendly and based on a small number of easy-to-understand and easy-to-teach big ideas, and the many activities help to emphasize and reinforce the development of the mathematical content.
