The fifth edition ofMathematical Reasoning for Elementary Teachers,with new co-author Richard Millman, focuses on mathematical knowledge needed for teaching--constantly showing future teachers why they are learning math content and when they will use this information in the classroom. To decide whether the methods or ideas of elementary students are right or wrong and be able to explainwhyto them is one of the most important aspects of teaching, and is the emphasis of this fantastic text for future teachers.
