Elementary and Middle School Mathematics, Second Canadian Edition, is intended primarily for pre-service and practicing elementary and junior high school mathematics teachers in Canada. Elementary Mathematics is usually offered as a one-semester course in Faculties of Education at universities and transfer colleges.

Elementary and Middle School Mathematics provides an unparalleled depth of ideas and discussion to help students develop a real understanding of the mathematics they will teach. John Van de Walle is one of the foremost experts on how children learn mathematics, and 80 percent of students keep his book for reference when they enter the classroom. Now in its second Canadian edition, this text continues to show the benefits of constructivist - or student centered - mathematics instruction. Most importantly, it provides a strong theoretical perspective on children's learning of mathematics - not just a casual overview.

I. FOUNDATIONS OF TEACHING MATHEMATICS.

1. Teaching Mathematics in the Context of the Reform Movement.

2. Exploring What It Means to Do Mathematics.

3. Developing Understanding in Mathematics.
