From the Back Cover:

This thoroughly revised edition of Learning Mathematics in Elementary and Middle Schools, Fifth Edition continues to illustrate how to create a leaner-centered classroom with a strengthened pedagogical thread around mathematical thinking, content understanding, and formative assessment.

 

This new edition helps teachers learn to analyze children’s mathematical thinking in spoken and written work in order to adapt instruction more effectively through:

  • opening pre-assessments of mathematics topics in the content area chapters,
  • classroom vignettes,
  • video that examines children’s mathematical reasoning including clips from the well-known IMAP: Integrating Mathematics and Pedagogy to Illustrate Children’s Reasoning project and additional classroom video
  • discussion of children's common mathematical misunderstandings, and
  • new sample lesson plans that tie back to pre-assessment topics.

In addition, the book supports high-quality mathematics teaching by emphasizing NCTM Standards and Curriculum Focal Points throughout. With its manageable length, practical strategies and activities to do in the classroom, and NCTM standards focus, this book will prove a valuable reference for readers well beyond their first years of teaching elementary mathematics.
