I would highly recommend this book to all teachers.

This book explains how to teach math so that students build on existing knowledge, rather than learn sets of algorithms without understanding their meaning.

Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics is a great classroom resource.

A professor recommended Van de Walle's books to me so I bought this one. This book explains how to teach math so that students build on existing knowledge, rather than learn sets of algorithms without understanding their meaning. It offers a range of specific lessons for all math topics for grades 5 - 8, it explains how to teach the same topics to diverse learners, how to teach to the standards. It comes with amazing templates that are downloadable. It shows you how to take advantage of your existing math textbook, supplementing it to make it more student-focused.

Van de Walle breaks down problem based classrooms in an understandable format. This book really helps teachers hone their skills in hands on/problem based teaching for mathematics. There are lots of activities to help you teach your students. This book is a must have for 5-8 Mathematics teachers.

This book provided great math activities for age group of 3rd to 5th grade. The activities incorporated standards but did not require a lot of materials or time to plan or teach.

Format: Paperback
This is required text for my teaching degree this year. It's an excellent book, which covers all curriculum areas in mathematics. It explains how children learn and understand, covers the stages of children's learning, provides practical activities to do, assists in finding relationships/connections to past learning and includes lesson planning and assessment. It is very comprehensive yet written in a way which makes it easy for anyone to read and understand. I highly recommend it for parents and teachers alike.

Very worthwhile purchase for anyone who teaches math to intermediate students. The suggested activities are not found in any other math books I have seen and should help create math learners who are not "formula" driven.

I would highly recommend this book to all teachers. The activities are really practical and the differentiation ideas have worked really with my class including the gifted students. So far I have been accessing the ideas around developing fraction concepts (in my opinion usually rushed to get to calculating with fractions). The ideas are not new but really well structured and the thinking behind them thoughtfully explained. I have been teaching for many years and have a passion for math education but I have to say I don't think I've ever taught fractions as well before.
