A Message from the Author
Research in mathematics education has consistently found that understanding and skills are best developed when students are allowed to wrestle with new ideas, to create and defend solutions to problems, and to participate in a mathematical community of learners. This student-centered, problem-based approach to learning is a central theme of this book. Learning how best to help children believe that mathematics makes sense and that they themselves can make sense of mathematics is an exciting endeavor and a lifelong process. It requires the knowledge gained from research, the wisdom shared by professional colleagues, and the insightful ideas that come from your own daily experiences with students. I hope that this book will assist you on this fantastic journey.
Praise for Elementary and Middle School Mathematics
This is absolutely the best book on the market. No other book comes close.
I particularly like the emphasis on doing math more than one way (invented math) and the emphasis on problem solving. There is a wealth of resources and children’s books for students to use in their development of concepts.
This text is not only a valuable tool in making sense of and encouraging the use of mathematics by preservice teachers, but also for those educators already in the field.

It covers everything from number concept development to algebra and more. I use this as a constant reference in my teaching.
Through its techniques, I have been able to help many children play their way to math understanding that transfers!
The techniques have been tried in real classrooms before they were put into this book. It comes with numerous black-line masters.
This book has helped my own math weaknesses turn into strengths! I just thought I was bad at math, but this book showed me I just hadn't developed certain math concepts because I was only taught to follow algorithms.
This book clearly explains the material using visual supports like graphs and diagrams in bright colors. Internet sights for lesson suggestions, assessment and lesson reinforcing games. A great tool and a good resource that I plan to keep on hand.
