Excellent teaching of mathematics at the elementary school level requires teachers to be experts in school mathematics. This textbook helps prospective teachers achieve this expertise by presenting topics from the K-6 mathematics curriculum at a greater depth than is found in most classrooms. The knowledge that comes from this approach gives prospective teachers essential insight into how topics interrelate and where the difficulties may lie.

Information is presented at a pace that makes it interesting, rewarding, and enjoyable. With the deeper mathematical preparation inherent in this book, prospective teachers will come away knowing how to explain concepts, demonstrate computational procedures, and lead students through problem-solving techniques. Both students and teachers will find this book key to learning the necessary material and knowing how to express it at the right level.

The primary focus is on the foundations of arithmetic, along with a selection of topics from geometry, and a wide range of applications. The number line is used throughout to visualize concepts and to tie them to solutions. The book emphasizes explanations: of concepts, of how to solve problems, and of how the concepts relate to the solutions of the problems.

description Excellent teaching of mathematics at the elementary school level requires that the teacher be an expert in school mathematics. This textbook for prospective teachers presents topics from the K-6 mathematics curriculum, but at a greater depth than is usually found in the classroom. The added knowledge that comes from this approach gives the teacher essential insight into how the topics interrelate and where difficulties might lie. With this deeper mathematical preparation, the teacher is better able to explain concepts, demonstrate computational procedures and lead students through problem-solving techniques. The primary focus is on the foundations of arithmetic, along with a selection of topics from geometry and a wide range of applications. The number line is used throughout to visualize concepts and to tie them to the solution of problems. The book emphasizes how to explain the concepts and how to explain problem solutions. This is a textbook for a college course in mathematics for prospective elementary school teachers. It will also be a resource for the instructors of such courses.
