About this title


MATHEMATICS FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS, International Edition is designed to give prospective elementary school teachers a profound understanding of the mathematical content they are expected to know and be able to teach. Chapters integrate and are built around the NCTM Standards and Expectations, the new Common Core Standards and highlights from research literature. As a result students follow a precise learning path that begins with the "Where Are We Going?" Chapter Openers to the Yellow Markers showing the process standards throughout the context, to the Concept Maps, to the Section Problem Sets with their "refreshers" of process standards as directions, to the Chapter Organizer with Learning Outcomes, and finally, conclude at the Chapter Test with their overarching Learning Outcomes. The author steadfastly guides the student through the course and the many concepts from the content standards using the process standards and Learning Outcomes to teach students to become better students and hence better prospective teachers.

About the Author:

Ricardo Fierro received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from the University of California, Davis, and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He was awarded the President's Dissertation Year Fellowship while completing his Ph.D. at UCSD, and the President's Postdoctoral Fellowship at University of California, Los Angeles, where he continued his research. He has been a faculty member in the Department of Mathematics at California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) since 1992. In addition to teaching mathematics for prospective elementary school teachers, he has taught such courses as numerical analysis and computing, optimization, modern geometry, probability and statistics, linear algebra, college algebra, modern algebra, discrete mathematics, and business calculus. To enrich his understanding of teaching at the grade school level, he spent a sabbatical leave teaching fourth, fifth, and sixth graders at an elementary school, and regularly volunteers as a mathematics teacher at local elementary schools. Professor Fierro is a member of the American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. He is married with two children.
