Text is appropriate for courses in Mathematics for the Elementary School.

Built on the foundation of the new 2000 NCTM Principles and Standards, this major new entry for K-8 math methods has impacted the market because of its point-of-use links to the standards and its emphasis on the importance of a child-centered approach-creating a learning environment that informs teachers how to support children as they build understandings of math concepts. Designed to be neither skimpy nor exhaustive, this text presents theory in an accessible manner and models a wealth of practical activities for teaching. Five videos from the Annenberg/CPB TEACHING MATH video series bring real classrooms to life for teachers and are integrated into the text as four/color, resourceful inserts.
