Summary: ''This book provides general descriptions of children's learning and is intended to help show how children approach mathematics differently than adults. By connecting children's thinking to your own learning, we hope that this book will improve your understanding of both mathematics and children's thinking, thereby enhancing your teaching of mathematics to children. The more you understand mathematics and how children think about mathematics, the better teacher you will be!'' ''Many ...show moreof the descriptions of how children learn are based on research, but some are based on the authors' personal experiences with helping children learn mathematics. As appropriate, the authors also include information on the ''why'' behind certain mathematical topics, how to incorporate manipulatives into the classroom, and some activities to try. The material is presented by topic, following the standard topics covered in a traditional mathematics for future elementary or middle school teacher's course.''--BOOK JACKET. ...show lessEdition/Copyright: 09
