Teachers and teacher educators have shown a willingness to find better ways to teach elementary mathematics, but learning new ways is sometimes difficult. This book invites readers to observe the interactions between and among children and teachers. The second edition of this book presents the essentials of pertinent research, valued classroom methodology, and current practice in teaching elementary math. One of the book's goals is to show the reader the integration of the NCTM Standards throughout the book. Topics covered include: general procedures and concerns, organizational plans, planning for groups, number concepts, algorithms, fractions and decimals, ratio and proportion, percent and probability, measurement and geometry, and more.
