This developmentally sound, research-based, practical text speaks
directly to preservice elementary mathematics students about the
multitude of ways they can help their future students learn to see
the power, beauty, necessity, and usefulness of mathematics in the
world.Part 1 deals with guiding principles that permeate the text,
while Parts 2-11 deal with the specific NCTM Standards for grades
K-6. Teaching K-6 Mathematics: *is aligned with the current NCTM
Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics;
*integrates content and methodology; *emphasizes use of technology
as a teaching/learning tool; *stresses problem solving; *provides
basic information on current research in mathematics education;
*focuses on identification of error patterns and analysis; *uses a
down-to-earth, friendly writing style that engages the student
rather than prescribing what to do; and *includes many activities
and exercises, including games, tricks, and amusements that can be
used in the classroom to increase student interest in mathematics.
Features: *Technology is integral throughout the text. Students are
expected to perform Internet searches, investigate new sites
appropriate for elementary students, sample new software that could
be used in the classroom, and develop ways to blend calculators
into the curriculum. *Manipulatives are considered essential for
students to learn elementary mathematics concepts. Cuisenaire rods,
base 10- blocks, chips, number lines, and geoboards are all part of
the manipulative landscape that is created in this text. *Careful
attention is given to blending rote work, developmental activities,
fun, application, technology, manipulatives, assessment, and
planning, so that prospective teachers become accustomed to using
varied approaches and decision making as a curriculum is
determined. *Tricks, Activities, and Games (TAG) provide a wealth
of ideas to attract students to learning mathematics.
