This leading K-8 math methods text has the most coverage of the NCTM Standards, the strongest coverage of middle school mathematics, and the highest student approval of any text currently available.Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally provides an unparalleled depth of ideas and discussion to help students develop a real understanding of the mathematics they will teach. This text reflects the NCTM Principles and Standards and the benefits of constructivist-or student-centered-mathematics instruction. It is structured for maximum flexibility, offering 23 brief, compartmentalized chapters that may be mixed and matched to fit any course or teaching approach. Practical and concise, it offers readers a strong theoretical perspective of how children learn mathematics and then shows them the best way to teach it.The text is organized into two sections. The first section introduces trends in mathematics education and the process of doing mathematics. It then develops the core ideas of learning, teaching, planning, and assessment. Additional perspectives on mathematics for special children and the role of technology are also discussed. Chapters 3 and 4 are the most critical as they describe the constructivist view of learning and how it is applied as well as what it means to teach through problem solving.Section II serves as the application of the core ideas in Section I. Chapters on every major area of content in the K-8 mathematics curriculum are included. Numerous problem-based activities to engage students are interwoven with a discussion of the mathematical content and how children develop their understanding of that content. The appendices at the end of the book provide additional information on the Principles and Standards of the NCTM, the Professional Standards, and Guides for Blackline Masters and suggestions for use of construction materials.Both a comprehensive textbook and a reference as students begin their teaching careers; Van de Walle's book will help teachers and students alike to find the excitement that happens when mathematics makes sense.NEW! Revises Chapter 5 on assessment--Discusses increased testing pressure and accountability, adds more information on equitable assessments, creates more explicit links between objectives and assessment, and includes assessments for students with special needs."

Genre: Mathematics

Elementary School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally, Second Edition, provides detailed, comprehensive coverage of the teaching of mathematics in grades K-8. Firmly grounded in the NCTM Standards, the text develops a constructivist/developmental approach to learning mathematics that focuses on the nature of mathematical concepts and the manner in which children construct mathematical ideas. It aims to help teachers reconceptualize mathematics as a problem-solving endeavor not as a mastery of rules and procedures. An accessible synthesis of viewpoints and current research, this highly praised text includes topics ranging from the development of basic fact mastery to the important development of "number sense"--All the while encouraging teachers to consider the construction of mathematics from the child's perspective. In-depth treatment of curriculum content teaching, combined with hundreds of teaching activities aimed at conceptual development, makes Elementary School Mathematics a practical teacher's resource as well as a college text. Elementary School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally, Second Edition, features: greater emphasis on the NCTM Curriculum Standards and the Professional Teaching Standards as the leading forces in mathematics education; a new chapter on mathematics as a "science of pattern and order"; a completely rewritten chapter on alternative assessment; expanded and improved problem-solving examples; enhanced coverage of grades 7 and 8; even more black-line masters with directions for making other useful materials; and an Instructor's Manual with instructional suggestions, activities for group homework, practicum ideas, and essay questions.
