#### Additional product details

Practical guide for developmentally appropriate, student-centered mathematics instruction from best selling mathematics methods authors John Van de Walle, Karen Karp, LouAnn Lovin, and Jennifer Bay-Williams.

Initially adapted from Van de Walle’s market-leading textbook, *Elementary and Middle School Mathematics*, the Professional Mathematics Series is specially designed for in-service teachers. Each volume of the series focuses on the content relevant to a specific grade band and provides additional information on creating an effective classroom environment, engaging families, and aligning teaching to the *Common Core State Standards*. Additional activities and expanded lessons are also included.

The series has three objectives:

1. To illustrate what it means to teach student-centered, problem-based mathematics

2. To serve as a reference for the mathematics content and research-based instructional strategies suggested for pre-kindergarten to grade two, grades three to five, and grades six to eight

3. To present a large collection of high quality tasks and activities that can engage students in the mathematics that is important for them to learn

Volume II is tailored specifically to grades 3-5, allowing teachers to quickly and easily locate information to implement in their classes. The student-centered approach will result in students who are successful in learning mathematics, making these books indispensable for 3-5 classroom teachers!
