Inspiring, empowering, and preparing preservice teachers for today''s classroom, ELEMENTARY MATHEMATICS IS ANYTHING BUT ELEMENTARY: CONTENT AND METHODS FROM A DEVELOPMENTAL PERSPECTIVE is a comprehensive program that delivers both a content and a methods text. Serving as a professional development guide for both pre-service and in-service teachers, this text''s integrated coverage helps dissolve the line between content and methods--and consequently bolsters teachers'' confidence in their delivery of math instruction. A strong emphasis on the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics five core standards provides key information common to most state curricula relative to NCTM standards for pre-K through sixth grade. In addition, text content is based on thorough elementary mathematical scope and sequences that have been shown to be an effective means for guiding the delivery of curriculum and instruction.

"This text has everything that every good mathematics methods course needs to help develop good practitioners of Mathematics in Elementary School."
"This book is distinctive because of its deliberative integration of mathematics content and pedagogy. ... Because I wish for elementary teachers to have strong mathematical content knowledge as well as wide repertories of mathematics teaching methods, I would consider adopting the proposed text."
"This textbook gives clearer examples of the inquiry technique and not only discusses Behaviorism, Direct Instruction and Constructivism, but compares them. The author does a great job of modeling ways to question and engage students in activities."
