Description : This must-have resource provides the theoretical groundwork for teaching number sense. Authored by Chris Shore, this e-book empowers teachers with the pedagogy, lessons, and detailed instructions to help them implement Clothesline Math in K-12 classrooms. Detailed, useful tips for facilitating the ensuing mathematical discourse are also included. At the elementary level, the hands-on lessons cover important math topics including whole numbers, place value, fractions, order of operations, algebraic reasoning, variables, and more. Implement Clothesline Math at the secondary level and provide students with hands-on learning and activities that teach advanced math topics including geometry, algebra, statistics, trigonometry, and pre-calculus. Aligned to state and national standards, this helpful resource will get students excited about learning math as they engage in meaningful discourse.
Description : This volume emerges from a partnership between the American Federation of Teachers and the Learning Research and Development Center at the University of Pittsburgh. The partnership brought together researchers and expert teachers for intensive dialogue sessions focusing on what each community knows about effective mathematical learning and instruction. The chapters deal with the research on, and conceptual analysis of, specific arithmetic topics (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, decimals, and fractions) or with overarching themes that pervade the early curriculum and constitute the links with the more advanced topics of mathematics (intuition, number sense, and estimation). Serving as a link between the communities of cognitive researchers and mathematics educators, the book capitalizes on the recent research successes of cognitive science and reviews the literature of the math education community as well.

Each lesson has materials lists activity descriptions questioning techniques problem-solving examples activity centre and extension ideas assessment suggestions activity sheets and visuals
Description : 'Every chapter reeks of intellectual integrity, a strong knowledge of pertinent research literatures, and the wisdom of practice.' - Professor Ken Clements, co-founder of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia 'This is an outstanding book: it should be high on the list of any primary school teacher's set of references and a required text for pre-service teachers.' - Kath Truran in Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom Teaching Mathematics in Primary Schools moves beyond traditional lock-step approaches to teaching mathematics to emphasise how students can learn to think mathematically in the new times of globalisation and a technology-rich society. Based on current international research, the book focuses on learning outcomes and the general principles that underlie educational practices rather than any specific curriculum. Current approaches to mathematics education are explained and critiqued, and insights into why some students have difficulties with mathematics are provided. Teachers are shown how to encourage their students to develop deep learning in mathematics, and to relate mathematics to the rest of the curriculum. The authors firstly examine the philosophy behind mathematics and its impact on curriculum design, the history of learning outcomes, and theories on how students learn mathematics. They then present the key areas of mathematics teaching in detail: number, chance and data, measurement, space, and algebra. In each area, the emphasis is on problem-solving. Finally, they discuss practical classroom issues such as the trend towards developing students' capacity to think mathematically, broad approaches to teaching mathematics, planning for a whole school approach to mathematics, diversity and access, and assessment, reporting and evaluation. New material on numeracy, early numbers and fractions has been added to this second edition. It also includes new material on teaching mathematics in the middle years of schooling. With practical activities that can be implemented in the classroom, this book is an invaluable resource for students and teachers.
Description : There is an increasing need for numeracy skills in all aspects of life. This book explores the issues that are emerging regarding the teaching of these skills, beginning with preschool and the early years of primary school through to adults with poor numeracy skills. It draws on research and relevant literature from several different countries to provide a comprehensive overview of the subject and contains many links to other sources of information and additional resources.
