About the Author:

Scott A. Chamberlin, Ph.D., is a professor of Elementary and Early Childhood Education at the University of Wyoming. His research interests concern how learners solve problems, their affective ratings during the activities, and creative products generated during such episodes. His main discipline interest in mathematics is statistics and probability.

Review:

Probability for Kids: Using Model-Eliciting Activities to Investigate Probability Concepts is a book that engages the teacher in the learning along with her students.

Dr. Chamberlin's approach is significantly up-to-date and aimed towards teachers, especially in grades 4 6. Educators know that it is important to teach a concept in depth, through more than one method of practice, and to have students engage in creative problem solving. This book solves that problem. --Linda Biondi, MiddleWeb

"Probability for Kids" will help teachers, parents, and other educators to employ best practices in implementing challenging math activities based on standards. Problem solvers who complete all six activities in "Probability for Kids" will understand the six basic principles of probability and be high school ready for discussions in probability. Thoroughly 'user friendly' in tone, content and presentation, "Probability for Kids" is an ideal and highly recommended addition to elementary school classroom curriculums and for use by home schooling parents. --Midwest Book Review

This book is an exciting exemplar for mathematics investigation. The suggested instructional practice using model-eliciting activities travels beyond traditional problem-solving methodology to engage students in an exploratory process that requires creative modeling of mathematical ideas and high-level instructor questioning. This book is for teachers who seek both content and methodological inspiration. --Barbara Allen-Lyall, Teaching Children Mathematics
