It can be used as a resource for teachers working with older students but I really don't know how it would benefit someone who teaches young children.

A colleague has used this book for years, but I always felt it was too confusing. It gives lots of math problems to work through. It gives lots of examples. It also relates the work to Principals and Standards. But it focuses on 4th grade math, and very little on pre-K math learning. It is a book written by a mathematician first, and a teacher second.

As a veteran educator and multiple degree recipient I was stunned by the material in this book! This book is quite the eye-opener for educators who have become comfortable in the field. My graduate school peers and coworkers all concurred that this book is exceptional in teaching one to humble themselves and consider that which we may have forgotten; students think differently and work differently than adults! I will admit that the text was basically a review of early education years, but the problem sets themselves were at times quite challenging which was much appreciated and useful in fulfilling the goal of the author-to have the reader truly understand how our students' minds receive and interpret what we consider to be "simple" mathematical concepts.

This book is the worst text book I have ever used in my entire life. I scored a 760 on Math for my GRE and I am struggling to understand anything in this text book. A text book is supposed to teach concepts in an understandable manner. When I have to search the internet to try to figure out what the book is trying to convey, the book has not done its job. The book refers to problems that are not are not there and asks questions that have not been explained.
