THE book for elementary education mathematics content courses! Designed to help prospective teachers of elementary school mathematics learn content beyond the rote level, this text stimulates readers to think beyond just getting the problem right and fosters their development into thoughtful, reflective, self-motivated, life-long learners. It stresses the what and why of elementary school mathematics content. Hints are provided about how to teach the content but this is mostly left to courses and texts that are dedicated to that purpose. The text is organized around the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics' Principles and Standards for School Mathematics. The Standards dictate the basic sections of the text. Within each section, appropriate specific topics are developed, intertwined with technology, problem solving, assessment, equity issues, planning, teaching skills, use of manipulatives, sequencing, and much more. In addition, major focal points of the Standards are emphasized throughout: effective teachers of mathematics should be able to motivate all students to learn, should understand the developmental levels of how children learn, should concentrate on what children need to become active participants in the learning environment, and should be engaged in ongoing investigations of new mathematical concepts and teaching strategies. Mathematics Content for Elementary Teachers is based on several fundamental premises: *The focus of mathematics education should be on the process, not the answer. *Elementary teachers should know the mathematics content they are teaching, know more than the content they are teaching, and teach from the overflow of knowledge. *It is important for teachers to be flexible in allowing students to use different procedures--teaching from the "overflow of knowledge" implies knowing how to do a given operation more than one way and being willing to examine many different ways. *Teachers need to learn to carefully cover the topics to be taught, to reflect upon them, and to be able to organize them. To help prospective elementary teachers concentrate on the mathematics content they will be expected to teach and begin to build the foundation for the methods they will use, this text includes only elementary mathematics content and does not address middle school concepts. Pedagogical features: *The text is organized according to NCTM Standards. *An informal writing style speaks directly to readers and is geared to pre-service teachers. *Focus is given to multiple methods of problem solving at four developmental levels. *Questions, exercises, and activities are interspersed throughout each section rather than gathered at the end of each chapter. *Complete solutions for exercises are provided.

MATHEMATICS FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS, 6E offers future teachers a comprehensive mathematics course designed to foster concept development through examples, investigations, and explorations. In this text, intended for the one- or two-semester course required of Education majors, Bassarear demonstrates that there are many paths to solving a problem, and sometimes problems have more than one solution. The author presents real-world problems—problems that require active learning in a method similar to how archaeologists explore an archaeological find: they carefully uncover the site, slowly revealing more and more of the structure. Visual icons throughout the main text allow instructors to easily connect content to the hands-on activities in the corresponding Explorations Manual. With this exposure, future teachers will be better able to assess student needs using diverse approaches.

Freitag's MATHEMATICS FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS: A PROCESS APPROACH was developed using the five Content Standards from the NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Traditionally, books for pre-service elementary teachers have focused on problem solving. However, problem solving is not the only process through which mathematics is learned. It is also learned through mathematical reasoning, communication, representation, and connections. Recent trends in mathematics education now advocate implementing all five processes as a vital part of learning and doing mathematics. Consequently, you need to have concrete experiences with these processes that you will be required to teach. The goal of this book is to treat each of the processes equitably by using an approach in which the five processes serve as the central pedagogical theme. Most of the examples, exercises, and activities are designed to either model the processes or to directly engage you in working with them. As a result, you will not only come to understand the different processes, but also appreciate them as an integral to learning and doing mathematics. If this broader view can be instilled, you are more likely to give your students a more well-rounded and holistic view of mathematics once you enter the classroom. The content of the book is directly related to the mathematics that is taught in grades K - 8. The purpose is not to reteach elementary mathematics. Rather, the intent is to look at the content from a theoretical or generalized point of view, so that you can better understand the concepts and processes behind the mathematics you will teach. In short, the book focuses on the why behind the mathematics in addition to the how. Available with InfoTrac Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers is designed to give you a profound understanding of the mathematical content that you are expected to know and be able to teach. The chapters integrate the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards and Expectations and the new Common Core State Standards, as well as research literature. The five NCTM Process Standards of problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, connections, and representation highlight ways that teachers present content, the ways that students learn content, and various ways that students can demonstrate procedural and conceptual understanding. The worked examples and homework questions provide prospective elementary school teachers with opportunities to develop mathematical knowledge, understanding, and skills that they can apply in their own classrooms effectively. The learning path begins with the Where Are We Going? Chapter Openers, worked Examples with Yellow Markers that indicate the Process Standards throughout the text, to the Concept Maps, to the Section Question Sets with their refreshers of Process Standards, to the Chapter Organizers with Learning Outcomes and a list of the corresponding Review Questions, and finally, conclude at the Chapter Tests with their overarching Learning Outcomes.

This leading K-8 math methods text has the most coverage of the NCTM Standards, the strongest coverage of middle school mathematics, and the highest student approval of any text currently available.Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally provides an unparalleled depth of ideas and discussion to help students develop a real understanding of the mathematics they will teach. This text reflects the NCTM Principles and Standards and the benefits of constructivist-or student-centered-mathematics instruction. It is structured for maximum flexibility, offering 23 brief, compartmentalized chapters that may be mixed and matched to fit any course or teaching approach. Practical and concise, it offers readers a strong theoretical perspective of how children learn mathematics and then shows them the best way to teach it.The text is organized into two sections. The first section introduces trends in mathematics education and the process of doing mathematics. It then develops the core ideas of learning, teaching, planning, and assessment. Additional perspectives on mathematics for special children and the role of technology are also discussed. Chapters 3 and 4 are the most critical as they describe the constructivist view of learning and how it is applied as well as what it means to teach through problem solving.Section II serves as the application of the core ideas in Section I. Chapters on every major area of content in the K-8 mathematics curriculum are included. Numerous problem-based activities to engage students are interwoven with a discussion of the mathematical content and how children develop their understanding of that content. The appendices at the end of the book provide additional information on the Principles and Standards of the NCTM, the Professional Standards, and Guides for Blackline Masters and suggestions for use of construction materials.Both a comprehensive textbook and a reference as students begin their teaching careers; Van de Walle's book will help teachers and students alike to find the excitement that happens when mathematics makes sense.NEW! Revises Chapter 5 on assessment--Discusses increased testing pressure and accountability, adds more information on equitable assessments, creates more explicit links between objectives and assessment, and includes assessments for students with special needs."
