Developing Essential Understanding of Algebraic Thinking for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 35 
 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 

Developing Essential Understanding of Rational Numbers for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 35 
 Help your upper elementary school student develop a robust understanding of rational numbers.  $32.95 

Developing Essential Understanding of Mathematical Reasoning for Teaching Mathematics in Grades PreK8 
 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) 
 February 2014 Focus Issue: Rational Number Sense
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 partwhole 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 partpart 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.
