Albert B. Bennett, Jr. and L. Ted Nelson have presented hundreds
of workshops on how to give future teachers the conceptual
understanding and procedural fluency they will need in order to
successfully teach elementary-school mathematics. The Seventh
Edition of Mathematics for Elementary Teachers: A Conceptual
Approach continues their innovative, time-tested approach: an
emphasis on learning via specific, realistic examples and the
extensive use of visual aids, hands-on activities, problem-solving
strategies and active classroom participation. Special features in
the text ensure that prospective teachers will gain not only a
deeper understanding of the mathematical concepts, but also a
better sense of the connections between their college math courses
and their future teaching experiences, along with helpful ideas for
presenting math to their students in a way that will generate
interest and enthusiasm. The text draws heavily on NCTM Standards
and contains many pedagogical elements designed to foster
reasoning, problem-solving and communication skills. The Seventh
Edition will also incorporate in-text references to the virtual
manipulative kit and other online resources that enhance the
authors explanations and examples.
