Feat
ures
  • Connections to standards-based middle school curricula - Provides future middle grade mathematics teachers with a strong mathematical foundation, connecting the mathematics they are learning with the mathematics they will be teaching.
  • Visual or geometric approach to formulas and procedures - Gives enhanced meaning to formulas often presented as simply definitions to be memorized.
  • Numerous illustrations and problems drawn from middle school mathematics curricula - Assist students in making explicit connections between a typical college elementary statistics course and the statistical concepts taught by middle school teachers.
  • Exploration problems at the start of each chapter - Lay the foundation for developing key concepts and ideas throughout the chapter and provide a more active way to engage students.
  • ''Focus on Understanding'' activities - Provide opportunities for students, working either in groups or individually, to apply and extend chapter concepts under discussion.
  • Integrated technology throughout - In keeping with the NCTM principles, explicit directions for using the TI-83 Plus calculator is integrated throughout the text, as well as additional computer software projects in the appendices.
