Overview

This practical guide to teaching mathematics for grades K–6 combines math methods and learning resources for pre-service and in-service elementary school teachers. The organization uses the Common Core State Standards as its overarching framework. Over 275 lesson activities reinforce the standards and include examples of cooperative learning strategies, take-home activities, and activities using technology. Content chapters "develop" a math topic and then "extend" the topic, providing foundational material that can be used throughout the elementary grades. Features highlight misconceptions about math operations and concepts, and ways to be inclusive of various cultural backgrounds. Also available: MindTap®, a customizable online learning experience.

Art Johnson, Boston University

Dr. Art Johnson has a wide range of experience in mathematics education. He taught middle and high school mathematics for over 30 years before moving to Boston University, where he taught undergraduate and graduate courses in mathematics education. At present he is retired as a full time professor but still teaches as an adjunct faculty member. Dr. Johnson has written over 50 books and 25 journal articles that span many topics in mathematics education, from mathematics history and geometry to manipulatives and English language learners.

Steve Tipps, University of South Carolina Upstate

Dr. Steve Tipps earned his doctorate at Ohio State University in early and middle childhood education and has been on the faculty of the University of Virginia, Midwestern State University, the University of North Texas, and the University of South Carolina Upstate. He is currently working as a mathematics consultant for elementary schools in North and South Carolina.

MindTap® is the digital learning solution that powers students from memorization to mastery. It gives you complete control of your course—to provide engaging content, to challenge every individual, and to build their confidence. Empower students to accelerate their progress with MindTap.

  • Over 275 classroom-ready lesson activities -- including cooperative learning strategies, take-home activities, and activities using technology such as apps -- are linked to Common Core Content Standards and Mathematical Practices.
  • "Misconception" features throughout the content chapters highlight common misunderstandings children have about specific math operations and concepts. These features also help pre-teachers clarify and correct their own misconceptions.
  • The chapter organization reinforces the structure of the Common Core. Within each content chapter, math topics are first "developed" and then "extended," beginning with foundational material that can be used throughout the elementary grades.
  • Each content chapter includes "CLD Alerts," providing tips to help classroom teachers support culturally and linguistically diverse students.
