About the Author

Rick Billstein is a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Montana. He has worked in mathematics teacher education at this university for over 40 years and his current research is in the areas of curriculum development and mathematics teacher education. He teaches courses for future teachers in the Mathematics Department. He served as the site director for the Show-Me Project, an NSF-funded project supporting the dissemination and implementation of standards-based middle grades mathematics curricula. He worked on the NSF grant Tinker Plots to develop new data analysis software and he serves on the Advisory Boards for several other national projects. From 1992-1997, he directed the NSF-funded Six Through Eight Mathematics (STEM) middle school mathematics curriculum project and is now directing the Middle Grades MATHThematics Phase II Project. Dr. Billstein has published articles in over 20 different journals, and has co-authored over 40 books, including ten editions of A Problem Solving Approach to Mathematics for Elementary Teachers. He typically does about 25 regional and national presentations per year and has worked in mathematics education at the international level. He presently serves on the Editorial Board of NCTM’s Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School. Dr. Billstein was recently awarded the George M. Dennison Presidential Faculty Award for Distinguished Accomplishment at the University of Montana.

 

Shlomo Libeskind is a professor in the mathematics department at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon, and has been responsible there for the mathematics teaching major since 1986.  In addition to teaching and advising pre-service and in-service teachers, Dr. Libeskind has extensive writing experience (books, articles, and workshop materials) as well as in directing mathematics education projects. In teaching and in writing, Dr. Libeskind uses a heuristic approach to problem solving and proof; in this approach the reasonableness of each step in a solution or proof is emphasized along with a discussion on why one direction might be more promising than another. As part of his focus on the improvement of the teaching of mathematics, Dr. Libeskind is also involved at many levels locally, nationally, and worldwide in the evaluation of mathematics teacher preparation programs. In his home state, he is actively involved in schools and councils, as well as in reviewing materials for the state standards for college admission. Most recently (spring 2008) he visited teacher colleges in Israel as a Fulbright Fellow.  During this visit he conducted observations and critiques of the preparation of mathematics teachers at several colleges in Northern Israel. Dr. Libeskind received his Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Mathematics at the Technion (Israel Institute of Technology) and his PhD in Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

I am in college and bought this book for a class.

The textbook (paper or online) rambles too much and does not explain concepts clearly.

Mathematica for Elementary School Teachers is a good book.

This book arrived on time, was a very cheap purchase, and in Excellent condition. It was a great help in my Math Class, and I was even even to sell it afterwards to someone else who needed it for the next semester.

I am taking classes online so most of our materials are available online as well. I liked the fact that I am able to actually read and highlight with this book. I knew it was used when I got it, but it is in excellent condition. No one has written in it or highlighted in it either. Very happy with this purchase :)

This good was a good book because you could check your answers in the back. I used this when I first took one of my math classes. It was way better than the new book I got for the class the second time.

I purchased this book as a hard copy while I was in college. It was not necessary to do so since I received the text book online however, my instructor suggested to get a hard copy because it would be easier to use. It is just like the one online but it was more convenient to use since it had a index which my online copy did not. One can use it when they began teaching and can use it as a reference. Very helpful.

Mathematica for Elementary School Teachers is a good book. It explains a lot within each chapter in how to solve math problems. I reckoned this book because it helps so much for later on in the future as a teacher.

Some examples were had to follow but overall the book is like most math textbooks and provides problems some answers to guide students.
