    Mastering Basic Math Skills: Games for Third through Fifth Grade

    By Bonnie Adama Britt Fractions, decimals, integers … children in third through fifth grade encounter new types of numbers and new concepts, and need to develop new skills to meet these challenges. Can they also have fun? Absolutely! This collection of games for children in third through fifth grade proves it. Games are organized in each chapter from simplest to more advanced, and many have variations that change the rules of play or make it more challenging once the basic game is mastered. Math games keep children engaged while providing the enormous amounts of practice they need to learn new concepts and math facts. All the games are correlated to the Common Core State Standards.

    Number and Operations, Part 1: Building A System of Tens Facilitators Package

    Deborah Schifter, Virginia Bastable, and Susan Jo Russell Building a System of Tens, the first module in the seven-part Developing Mathematical Ideas Series, consists of a casebook (sold separately) and an online facilitator’s package that contains everything necessary to prepare for and lead the seminar, including access to the casebook and classroom videos. Under the guidance of the facilitator, participants explore the base-ten number structure, consider how that structure is exploited in multidigit computational procedures, and examine how basic concepts of whole numbers reappear when working with decimals.

    (eBook) Reimagining the Mathematics Classroom (PDF Downloads)

    Reimagining the Mathematics Classroom presents a comprehensive systems approach to examining mathematics teaching. It synthesizes and illustrates current research on the essential elements of mathematics teaching and learning, unpacking each component—the classroom physical space, mathematical discourse, tasks, assessments, and families and communities—and providing concrete practical strategies and tools teachers can directly apply to their work. In addition, tips on using technology to assess and enhance learning are embedded throughout the book. Supplementary online teaching resources (math problem worksheets, conversational prompts, purposeful questions, videos, and so forth) can be accessed at NCTM’s More4U website.
