A practical, comprehensive, student-centered approach to effective mathematical instruction for grades Pre-K-2. Helping students make connections between mathematics and their worlds–and helping them feel empowered to use math in their lives–is the focus of this widely popular guide. Designed for classroom teachers, the book focuses on specific grade bands and includes information on creating an effective classroom environment, aligning teaching to various standards and practices, such as the Common Core State Standards and NCTM’s teaching practices, and engaging families. The first portion of the book addresses how to build a student-centered environment in which children can become mathematically proficient, while the second portion focuses on practical ways to teach important concepts in a student-centered fashion. The new edition features a corresponding Enhanced Pearson eText version with links to embedded videos, blackline masters, downloadable teacher resource and activity pages, lesson plans, activities correlated to the CCSS, and tables of common errors and misconceptions. This book is part of the Student-Centered Mathematics Series, which is designed with three objectives: to illustrate what it means to teach student-centered, problem-based mathematics, to serve as a reference for the mathematics content and research-based instructional strategies suggested for the specific grade levels, and to present a large collection of high quality tasks and activities that can engage students in the mathematics that is important for them to learn.

Impactful Practices for Early Childhood Teacher Educators

Impactful Practices for Early Childhood Teacher Educators

This book intends to provide the reader with multiple examples of effective and innovative practices when teaching preservice or inservice teachers. Chapters will describe in-class activities and program level initiatives on a variety of important topics. The chapters are written by experts who have successfully implemented these practices.

The Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership

The Power of a Networked Improvement Community to Transform Secondary Mathematics Teacher Preparation

The Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership

This book provides an overview of a body of work conducted over the past seven years related to the preparation of secondary mathematics teachers by the Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership (MTE-Partnership), a national consortium of more than 90 universities and 100 school systems. The MTE-Partnership is organized as a Networked Improvement Community (NIC), which combines the disciplined inquiry of improvement science with the power of networking to accelerate improvement by engaging a broad set of participants. The MTE-Partnership is addressing key challenges in secondary mathematics teacher preparation, including: • Supporting the development of content knowledge relevant to teaching secondary mathematics; • Providing effective clinical experiences to teacher candidates; • Recruiting secondary mathematics teacher candidates, ensuring program completion and their subsequent retention in the field as early career teachers; • Supporting overall transformation of secondary mathematics teacher preparation in alignment with these challenges; • Ensuring a focus on equity and social justice in secondary mathematics teacher recruitment, preparation, and induction. This book outlines existing knowledge related to each of these key challenges, as well as the work of Research Action Clusters (RACs) formed to address the challenges. Each RAC includes participants from multiple institutions who work collaboratively to iteratively develop, test, and refine processes and products that can help programs more effectively prepare secondary mathematics teacher candidates. The book describes promising approaches to improving aspects of secondary mathematics teacher preparation developed by the RACs, including specific products that have been developed, which will inform the work of others involved in secondary mathematics teacher preparation. In addition, reflections on the use of the NIC model provides insights for others considering this research design. Particular references to the Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics (Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators, 2017) are included throughout the book.

Elementary and Middle School Mathematics

Teaching Developmentally

Elementary and Middle School Mathematics

Note: This is the loose-leaf version of Elementary and Middle School Mathematics and does not include access to the Enhanced Pearson eText. To order the Enhanced Pearson eText packaged with the loose-leaf version, use ISBN 0134046951. Help all Pre-K-8 learners make sense of math Written by leaders in the field, Elementary and Middle School Mathematics:Teaching Developmentally helps teacher candidates develop a real understanding of the mathematics they will teach and the most effective methods of teaching Pre-K-8 math topics. This text reflects the Common Core State Standards and NCTM’s Principles to Actions, as well as current research. Emphasis is placed on teaching math conceptually, in a problem-based, developmentally appropriate manner that supports the learning needs of all students. Pause and Reflect prompts and Activities engage pre-service teachers as they bolster their own knowledge of the math. Classroom videos and examples of real student work allow teacher candidates to visualize good mathematics instruction and assessment. An important reference to consult throughout a teaching career, this book helps teachers and their students experience the excitement that happens when math makes sense. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video, assessments, and clickable Activity Sheets and Blackline Masters.
