Product Description

By Gwendolyn Lloyd, Vanessa Pitts Bannister

"This book is a "must-have" for mathematics teacher educators who prepare future teachers…”—Margaret (Peg) Smith, Professor of Mathematics Education, University of Pittsburgh

“[W]ith this book, Lloyd and Bannister offer a concise and rich summary of how teacher educators can use these materials to stimulate and develop the current and next generation of classroom teachers.”—Barbara Reys, Lois Knowles Distinguished Professor, University of Missouri

This book gives teacher educators a collection of strategies and activities for using Standards-based curriculum materials in mathematics teacher education. In addition, the book offers personal accounts from mathematics teacher educators about how and why they use Standards-based curriculum materials in their teacher education work, as well as reflections about how their PTs learned through engagement with curriculum materials.

An invaluable resource for all mathematics teacher educators, this book compiles the different ways the mathematics teacher educators at various universities have used Standards-based curriculum materials. The chapters show how both elementary and secondary prospective teachers can enhance their disposition toward, and understanding of, NCTM's Principles and Standards for School Mathematics from both their university coursework and their intern field experiences as they analyze and enact Standards-based curriculum materials.

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 Expressions, Equations, and Functions for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 6-8
This book focuses on essential knowledge for teachers about expressions, equations, and functions. It is organized around five big ideas, supported by multiple smaller, interconnected ideas—essential understandings.Taking you beyond a simple introduction to expressions, equations, and functions, the book will broaden and deepen your mathematical understanding of one of the most challenging topics for students—and teachers. It will help you engage your students, anticipate their perplexities, avoid pitfalls, and dispel misconceptions. You will also learn to develop appropriate tasks, techniques, and tools for assessing students' understanding of the topic.

Smarter Together! Collaboration and Equity in the Elementary Math Classroom
CI is a set of ideas and strategies that address the problems that confound group work, but that create powerful learning for children. This book offers guidance to readers on how to use these strategies and ideas. The authors describe the lessons they learned using group work, explain how complex instruction helps unsuccessful students, and analyze how to design assignments that support group learning—using group-worthy tasks—giving readers examples of good tasks and help in adapting math problems from their own curricula.$38.95
Reasoning and Sense-Making Problems and Activities for Grades 5-8

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.
