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 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. $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. $32.95
