Focus in Prekindergarten–Grade 2* shows teachers
and other educators how they can incorporate NCTM’s *Curriculum Focal Points
for PreK–8*
into their current mathematics curricula. The book provides
practical ideas for bringing focus to mathematics learning and instruction in
the classroom. Intended as a professional development tool, it presents self-
and group-reflection tasks, sample student work, a sample state mathematics
curriculum organized around the Focal Points, and other tools that teacher
educators can use with the preservice teachers in their
classes.

By focusing more
intensely on fewer topics at each grade level, students gain a deeper
understanding of mathematical ideas. This volume will help teachers think about
what a focused curriculum means and how they might begin to build focus into
their existing curricula.
