The third edition of Reys’ Helping Children Learn Mathematics is a practical resource for undergraduate students of primary school teaching. Rich in ideas, tools and stimulation for lessons during teaching rounds or in the classroom, this edition continues to provide a clear understanding of how to navigate the Australian Curriculum, with detailed coverage on how to effectively use Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in the classroom. This is a full colour printed textbook with an interactive eBook code included. Great self-study features include: auto-graded in-situ knowledge check questions, video of teachers demonstrating how different maths topics can be taught in the classroom and animated, branched chain scenarios are in the e-text.

Results from national and international assessments indicate that school children in the United States are not learning mathematics well enough. Many students cannot correctly apply computational algorithms to solve problems. Their understanding and use of decimals and fractions are especially weak. Indeed, helping all children succeed in mathematics is an imperative national goal. However, for our youth to succeed, we need to change how weâ€™re teaching this discipline. Helping Children Learn Mathematics provides comprehensive and reliable information that will guide efforts to improve school mathematics from pre--kindergarten through eighth grade. The authors explain the five strands of mathematical proficiency and discuss the major changes that need to be made in mathematics instruction, instructional materials, assessments, teacher education, and the broader educational system and answers some of the frequently asked questions when it comes to mathematics instruction. The book concludes by providing recommended actions for parents and caregivers, teachers, administrators, and policy makers, stressing the importance that everyone work together to ensure a mathematically literate society.

Adding It Up explores how students in pre-K through 8th grade learn mathematics and recommends how teaching, curricula, and teacher education should change to improve mathematics learning during these critical years. The committee identifies five interdependent components of mathematical proficiency and describes how students develop this proficiency. With examples and illustrations, the book presents a portrait of mathematics learning: Research findings on what children know about numbers by the time they arrive in pre-K and the implications for mathematics instruction. Details on the processes by which students acquire mathematical proficiency with whole numbers, rational numbers, and integers, as well as beginning algebra, geometry, measurement, and probability and statistics. The committee discusses what is known from research about teaching for mathematics proficiency, focusing on the interactions between teachers and students around educational materials and how teachers develop proficiency in teaching mathematics.

Now in its ninth edition, this book helps equip teachers with the necessary skills, strategies, and activities that are essential for them to have when they are in their own elementary math classes. It incorporates the latest NCTM Curriculum Focal Points as well as the latest guidelines from professional organizations, such as the Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics. The In the Classroom feature now includes masters of materials, games boards, and more on the accompanying Web site. Examples of authentic artifacts from real classrooms with analysis questions are presented. A new chapter on number theory is also included for teachers, which examines topics that are now emphasized in many of the states’ standards for elementary students.

Helping Children Learn Mathematics, Sixth Edition, is written for elementary school teachers to help children learn mathematics meaningfully. This revision reflects major changes in the elementary school mathematics curriculum, assessment, and professional development of teacher education consistent with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, Standards 2000. The first part of the text provides a base for understanding the changing mathematics curriculum and how children learn in it. It offers guidelines for planning instruction with an emphasis on problem solving and assessment. The second part of the text discusses teaching strategies, techniques and learning activities related to specific mathematical topics. Emphasis is on using models and materials to understand concepts and skills.

A best-selling activity-oriented approach to methods of teaching elementary and middle school mathematics. It’s hands on, practical approach assists elementary school preservice and inservice elementary school teachers in helping children learn mathematics meaningfully. This Active Learning Edition includes material from a Teaching Elementary Mathematics: A Resource for Field Ezperiences. The resource manual material helps the reader design and reflect on classroom observations, interviews and sample teaching activities

Activities and masters to use alone or with the book, Helping Children Learn Mathematics, supplements student understanding of basic mathematical concepts.

15 million adults in England alone struggle with maths, why is this and how can teachers and parents change that with the next generation? This is a pratical explanation of what has gone wrong and a positive approach to improving how students of all abilities can learn mathematics.

Unser Gehirn ist nicht – wie lange angenommen – eine unveränderliche Hardware. Es kann sich vielmehr auf verblüffende Weise umgestalten und sogar selbst reparieren. Norman Doidge verbindet faszinierende Einblicke in die neueste Forschung mit aufsehenerregenden Beispielen aus der Praxis: etwa eine Frau, deren eine Hirnhälfte die Funktionen eines ganzen Gehirns übernahm. Oder der Mann, dessen Gehirn nach einem Schlaganfall die Hirnströme in gesunde Hirnregionen »umleitet« und seinem gelähmten Arm die Bewegungsfähigkeit zurückgibt. All dies ermöglicht unser Gehirn, das stärker und anpassungsfähiger ist, als wir je dachten.
