Product Description

Focus in Grade 6: Teaching with Curriculum Focal Points describes and illustrates learning paths for the mathematical concepts and skills of each grade 6 Focal Point as presented in Curriculum Focal Points for Prekindergarten through Grade 8 Mathematics. It includes representational supports for teaching and learning that can facilitate understanding, stimulate productive discussions about mathematical thinking, and provide a foundation for fluency with the core ideas. This book also discusses common student errors and misconceptions, reasons the errors may arise, and teaching methods or visual representations to address the errors.

Because learning paths cut across grades, related Focal Points for grades 5 and 7 have been included to describe and clarify prerequisite knowledge and show how the grade 6 understandings build on what went before.

Focus in Grade 6, one in a series of grade-level publications, is designed to support teachers, supervisors, and coordinators as they develop and refine the mathematics curriculum.

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
Implementing the Common Core State Standards through Mathematical Problem Solving, Grades 6-8
Connect the Process of Problem Solving with the Content of the Common Core
Mathematics educators have long worked to help students to develop problem-solving skills. More recently, they have sought to provide students with the knowledge in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This volume is the third in a series from NCTM that equips classroom teachers with targeted, highly effective problems for achieving both goals at once. For every mathematics educator, the books in this series will illuminate a crucial link between problem solving and the Common Core State Standards.

Developing Essential Understanding of Mathematical Reasoning for Teaching Mathematics in Grades Pre-K-8
This book focuses on essential knowledge for teachers about mathematical reasoning. It is organized around one big idea, supported by multiple smaller, interconnected ideas—essential understandings.Taking you beyond a simple introduction to mathematical reasoning, 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.

"Rational Number Sense" (focus 2/14 MTMS)
Fractions and other rational numbers are challenging topics to teach as well as learn. What does it take for students to make sense of rational numbers in their myriad forms, such as fractions, ratios, rates, percentages, and decimals? For instance, understanding fractions requires part-whole thinking, including partitioning, iterating (the process of making copies of a unit fraction to make a whole), and unitizing (identifying the unit and the whole). Making sense of ratios also requires part-part thinking and proportional reasoning involving multiplicative rather than additive comparisons between two quantities. As teachers, we want to focus on how to foster these kinds of complex and sophisticated ways of thinking among our students. The Editorial Panel of Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School wants to know your thoughts on what can be done to improve students’ rational number sense. $13.95
