Guide teachers to help all Pre-K-8 learners make sense of math

Written by leaders in the field, Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally helps teacher candidates develop a real understanding of the mathematics they will teach and the most effective methods of teaching Pre-K-8 math topics. This text reflects the Common Core State Standards and NCTM’s Principles to Actions, as well as current research. Emphasis is placed on teaching math conceptually, in a problem-based, developmentally appropriate manner that supports the learning needs of all students. Pause and Reflect prompts and Activities engage pre-service teachers as they bolster their own knowledge of the math. Classroom videos and examples of real student work allow teacher candidates to visualise good mathematics instruction and assessment. An important reference to consult throughout a teaching career, this book helps teachers and their students experience the excitement that happens when math makes sense.
