This review is from: Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally (8th Edition) (Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics Series) (Paperback)
I can't say that I loved it, because who really loves a college textbook? However, as far as textbooks go, this one is really well laid out. The best part is all of the examples, and the direct quotations of interactions between students and teachers. There is SO much content in here that it is hard to absorb it all. It helped me get a good understanding of how students think in the math classroom, and how important it is to give them a foundational understanding of mathematics rather than have them memorize facts and formulas. I would like a few more pictures, resources, and activities (maybe in a back index?), because the activities that are there are embedded in the text. It would be nice if they could all be seen together in one place.
