All students can learn mathematics with understanding. It is through the teacher’s actions, a positive classroom environment, and by allowing students to develop their own strategies and learn from others that every student can have success and develop confi dence in their abilities. We want students to see the connections among mathematical topics and the real world, value mathematics that is all around them, and feel empowered to use it.
The text covers concepts and procedures specifi c to mathematical topics encountered in grades K—8, using real experiences and assessment techniques to address the foundations of how children learn. The previous edition’s focus on teaching through problem solving now takes a broader focus on mathematical inquiry through rich tasks and classroom discourse.
