Product Description

By Elizabeth Phillips, Judith Zawojewski

This book is a collection of the best of NCTM's Addenda series, grades 5-8 and includes problems and examples that represent critical content for today’s middle school curriculum. The problems focus on the four key practices:

• Roles of representation
• Generalization
• Problem solving
• Connections in mathematics learning and teaching

First introduced by NCTM, these four key practices are part of the set of Mathematical Practices described by the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. The book is organized into four chapters: Number and Operations, Measurement and Geometry, Data and Chance, and Algebra. The chapters show each problem with a goal statement, a list of needed materials, possible solutions, teacher’s notes and ideas for extensions. Teacher’s notes include the problem’s mathematical goals, key information for implementing the problem, elaboration on students’ possible strategies, and sample questions and answers. The editors identify throughout the book where a problem incorporates one of the CCSSM Mathematical Practices. An appendix includes reproducible blackline masters, which can also be found online and downloaded from NCTM’s MORE4U website page.

This book has More4U, which includes additional resources online. Download activities, classroom materials, and blackline masters. Look inside book for access code.

Developing Essential Understanding of Algebraic Thinking for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 3-5
Like algebra at any level, early algebra is a way to explore, analyze, represent, and generalize mathematical ideas and relationships. This book shows that children can and do engage in generalizing about numbers and operations as their mathematical experiences expand. The authors identify and examine five big ideas and associated essential understandings for developing algebraic thinking in grades 3–5.$32.95
Developing Essential Understanding of Multiplication and Division for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 3-5
Move beyond the mathematics you expect your students to learn.

"Unpacking" the ideas related to multiplication and division is a critical step in developing a deeper understanding. To those without specialized training, may of these ideas might appear to be easy to teach. But those who teach in grades 3-5 are aware of their subtleties and complexities.
