Description

For courses in teaching mathematics in education or special education at the elementary or middle school level. This is the only supplemental text of its kind that instructs teachers how to identify typical error patterns, to receive feedback on their diagnosis, and to gain insight regarding why a child may have adopted an incorrect mathematics procedure. Revised to link content to the new NCTM Standards, this new edition emphasizes the meaning of operations and an appropriate method of computation. As in previous editions, it retains its focus on placing paper and pencil instructional activities within the context of problem solving.
