DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This leading K-8 math methods text has the most coverage of the NCTM Standards, the strongest coverage of middle school mathematics, and the highest student approval of any text currently available.Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally provides an unparalleled depth of ideas and discussion to help students develop a real understanding of the mathematics they will teach. This text reflects the NCTM Principles and Standards and the benefits of constructivist-or student-centered-mathematics instruction. It is structured for maximum flexibility, offering 23 brief, compartmentalized chapters that may be mixed and matched to fit any course or teaching approach. Practical and concise, it offers readers a strong theoretical perspective of how children learn mathematics and then shows them the best way to teach it.The text is organized into two sections. The first section introduces trends in mathematics education and the process of doing mathematics. It then develops the core ideas of learning, teaching, planning, and assessment. Additional perspectives on mathematics for special children and the role of technology are also discussed. Chapters 3 and 4 are the most critical as they describe the constructivist view of learning and how it is applied as well as what it means to teach through problem solving.Section II serves as the application of the core ideas in Section I. Chapters on every major area of content in the K-8 mathematics curriculum are included. Numerous problem-based activities to engage students are interwoven with a discussion of the mathematical content and how children develop their understanding of that content. The appendices at the end of the book provide additional information on the Principles and Standards of the NCTM, the Professional Standards, and Guides for Blackline Masters and suggestions for use of construction materials.Both a comprehensive textbook and a reference as students begin their teaching careers; Van de Walle's book will help teachers and students alike to find the excitement that happens when mathematics makes sense.NEW! Revises Chapter 5 on assessment--Discusses increased testing pressure and accountability, adds more information on equitable assessments, creates more explicit links between objectives and assessment, and includes assessments for students with special needs."

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Note: This title is only available as a loose-leaf version with Pearson eText, or an electronic book. Elementary and Middle School Mathematics guides both new and experienced teachers through a basic understanding of mathematics and problem solving, and encourages them to think about their own perceptions and misconceptions about mathematics. As well, it addresses potential pitfalls, and demonstrates how teachers can foster a favourable learning environment for their students. The text covers concepts and procedures specific to mathematical topics encountered in grades K-8, using real experiences and assessment techniques to address the foundations of how children learn. The previous edition's focus on teaching through problem solving now takes a broader focus on mathematical inquiry through rich tasks and classroom discourse.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

A short primer on each of the major math content areas that preservice and inservice elementary and middle school teachers are required to know. This book is an invaluable resource for the classroom teacher who needs both an overview for planning and help in answering student questions. Based broadly on the national standards, it gives the teacher general scientific information to cover most state's standards and to help prepare them for teacher certification exams. It also provides a strong overview of mathematical knowledge to allow the teacher to find information on important concepts, to see where significant moments in mathematical history fit chronologically, and to improve the teacher's understanding of mathematical ideas and concepts. Moreover, it saves professors from having to re-teach mathematics content so they can remain focused on the methods.

Editor: Wiley Global Education

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The goal of Visualizing Elementary and Middle School Mathematics Methods is to teach mathematics in a way that excites and motivates readers, with an accessible format that serves as an introduction to the teaching of mathematics. This text, in partnership with National Geographic, is designed to present mathematics content and pedagogy in a fresh new way. This unique approach, while maintaining necessary rigor, provides the opportunity to set aside previous beliefs about mathematics and to learn concepts and pedagogy from a new perspective. The structure of Visualizing Elementary and Middle School Mathematics Methods is similar to the format of other methods texts, however, it has many unique features that are designed to be engaging and make the text relevant for readers. It begins with a brief summary of the history of mathematics. Diversity is integrated into the content of every chapter, through Multicultural Perspectives in Mathematics. Several chapters include Virtual Classroom Observation Videos.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Ability grouping. Leveling systems. Streaming. This is the modern way of talking about tracking -- the traditional practice of sorting and selecting students based on test scores and other criteria, and then steering these groups into "the most appropriate" course of study. In 1987, New York's suburban Rockville Centre School District faced the fact that its longstanding tracking system was resulting in unequal educational opportunities and allowing racial and socioeconomic stratification of its student population. School leaders embarked on an ambitious program of reform: reexamining beliefs about intelligence, ability, and instruction, and offering all students the opportunity to study a rigorous curriculum in heterogeneous classrooms. In this book, authors Carol Corbett Burris and Delia T. Garrity, veterans of the Rockville Centre School District, offer an experience-based and research-supported argument that detracking--implemented with planning, patience, and persistence--can do in every school district what it did in theirs: raise achievement across the board and dramatically narrow the achievement gap. Their main goal is a practical one: to provide educational leaders with proven strategies for launching, sustaining, and monitoring a successful detracking reform. Here, you'll read * Why detracking is necessary, the benefits it brings, and how to build support among teachers and parents * How to revise curriculum to "level-up" instruction * How to establish a multiyear, personalized professional development program to help teachers address new instructional needs * How to best support effective teaching and learning in a heterogeneous classroom Detracking for Excellence and Equity outlines a comprehensive approach built on self-reflection, direct action, vigilant supervision, and a set of very clear beliefs: that schools and opportunity matter; that acceleration and enrichment will improve all students' achievement; and that all students deserve access to the best curriculum.
