Guide teachers to help all PreK-8 learners make sense of mathematics.
Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally illustrates how children learn mathematics, and then shows pre-service teachers the most effective methods of teaching PreK-8 math through hands-on, problem-based activities.
As teacher candidates engage with the activities, they boost their own knowledge of the math and learn concrete, developmentally appropriate ways to incorporate problem-based tasks in their classrooms. Examples of real student work and new common challenges and misconception tables allow readers to visualize good mathematics instruction and assessment that supports and challenges all learners. An important reference to consult throughout a teaching career, this book reflects the Common Core State Standards and NCTM’s Principles to Actions, as well as current research and coverage of the latest teaching technology.
