Description

This title is only available as a loose-leaf version with Pearson eText, or an electronic book.

 

 

This popular text promotes a learner-centered approach to teaching elementary and middle school mathematics. It provides valuable research-based instructional strategies, resources, and activities to help teachers evaluate how children think mathematically and how to link that knowledge to developmentally appropriate teaching practice. With its strong focus on Common Core Standards and analyzing children’s work to meet the individual needs of students, the book helps ensure that all students and teachers can be successful with math. The new edition features integration of the Common Core State Standards throughout, new examples of children’s work, updated internet links, expanded videos of children and classrooms, expanded “In Practice” features, and updated research on mathematics teaching and learning. It is available as an e-book.
