Description : This thorough and practical guide to teaching kindergarten through sixth grade level mathematics is a perfect combination of a math methods text and resource book for the pre-service and in-service elementary school teacher. The text's organization uses the NCTM standards as its overarching framework; a rich variety of chapter activities reinforces the standards, and includes many examples of cooperative learning strategies. Content chapters first develop a math topic, and then extend the same topic, thus providing foundational material for primary grades and even more appropriate material for upper elementary and intermediate grades. Other useful features highlight misconceptions often held about math operations and concepts, ways to be inclusive of various cultural backgrounds, findings from key research in mathematics, and key technology resources.

Description : It can be difficult to recognize that in spite of the precision and power of mathematics, both the verbal and symbolic language it uses have the same qualities of ambiguity as every other human language. In The Role of Language in Teaching Children Math, Dr. Kastner reveals strategies to overcome the fact that traditional and current mathematics curricula, beginning in the early grades, fail to provide students with the conceptual understanding required to advance to levels where the delight of geometry and calculus become accessible. Kastner's clear prose and organic organization assists teachers, parents, and students to untangle abstract meanings required for mastery in the field of mathematics. ""As teachers of mathematics, it is critical that we continually foster meaningful mathematical conversations with children in order for them to develop a deep understanding of the math. Bernice's extraordinary, thought-provoking book is a primer on how the language we use to teach and talk about mathematics can either obscure or illuminate the profound beauty of mathematics. The Role of Language in Teaching Children Math should be read by any serious teacher of mathematics."" --Debby Halperin, Recipient of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching 2014
Description : Teaching Young Children Mathematics provides a comprehensive overview of mathematics instruction in the early childhood classroom. Taking into account family differences, language barriers, and the presence of special needs students in many classrooms throughout the U.S., this textbook situates best practices for mathematics instruction within the larger frameworks of federal and state standards as well as contemporary understandings of child development. Key topics covered include: developmental information of conceptual understanding in mathematics from birth through 3rd grade, use of national and state standards in math, including the new Common Core State Standards, information for adapting ideas to meet special needs and English Language Learners, literacy connections in each chapter, ‘real-world’ connections to the content, and information for family connections to the content.
Description : Drawing on their many years' experience of teaching children 3 to 8 years, the authors explain the development and range of young children's mathematical marks and representations.
Description : This work uses data from the authors' own research on children's performance, errors and misconceptions across the mathematics curriculum. It develops concepts for teachers to use in organising their understanding and knowledge of children's mathematics, and concludes with theoretical accounts of learning and teaching.
