Book Description

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.
Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

Editorial Reviews


"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."

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful and Informative September 3, 2012

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was required for class but it is very useful. They have three sections in each chapter and each section provides some different insight. Though we know many of the basics of Elementary Mathematics as adults, we must understand that for young children it is not simple, just as it was not all that simple for us when we were children. This book provides great ways of understanding this and how we can help children learn mathematics through investigation rather than simply lecturing them.
