Mathematics for Elementary Teachers : Volume I : Numbers and Operations : Preliminary Edition / With Activities Manual (New) - 03 edition

Mathematics for Elementary Teachers : Volume I : Numbers and Operations : Preliminary Edition / With Activities Manual (New) (ISBN10: 0321129806; ISBN13: 9780321129802)
ISBN13: 978-0321129802
ISBN10: 0321129806

Summary: Also available as a two-volume set, this text is intended to give students depth and perspective in their knowledge of the mathematics taught in elementary school. The author believes that some key elements in achieving this depth and perspective are for students to write clear, logical explanations, for students to enhance their intuition by working with examples and by looking for patterns and connections, and for students to use mathematics in a variety of applica
tions. The book is centered around "class activities," which are designed for students to work on in class in small groups. The class activities foster engagement, exploration and discussion of the material, rather than passive absorption. Many exercises and problems are included at the end of each chapter. Working on these exercises and problems and justifying their solutions carefully and clearly is crucial to achieving depth of understanding of the material. Both students and instructors should find this material fun, interesting, and rewarding.
