Putting Essential Understanding of Multiplication and Division into Practice in Grades 3-5
Do your students believe that division "doesn't make sense" if the divisor is greater than the dividend?
Explore rich, researched-based strategies and tasks that show how students are reasoning about and making sense of mulitplication and division.
Achieving Fluency: Special Education and Mathematics
"Is it a learning disability or a teaching disability?"
Achieving Fluency presents the understandings that all teachers need to play a role in the education of students who struggle: those with disabilities and those who simply lack essential foundational knowledge. This book serves teachers and supervisors by sharing increasingly intensive instructional interventions for struggling students on essential topics aligned with NCTM's Curriculum Focal Points, the new Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, and the practices and processes that overlap the content. These approaches are useful for both overcoming ineffective approaches and implementing preventive approaches.

Putting Essential Understanding of Fractions into Practice in Grades 3-5
What tasks can you offerwhat questions can you askto determine what your students know or don’t knowand move them forward in their thinking?
This book focuses on the specialized pedagogical content knowledge that you need to teach fractions effectively in grades 3–5. The authors demonstrate how to use this multifaceted knowledge to address the big ideas and essential understandings that students must develop for success with fractionsnot only in their current work, but also in higher-level mathematics and a myriad of real-world contexts.
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
