    (eBook) Putting Essential Understanding into Practice: Number and Numeration PK-2 (PDF Downloads)

    What tasks can you offer—what questions can you ask—to determine what your students know or don’t know—and move them forward in their thinking?   This book focuses on the specialized pedagogical content knowledge that you need to teach number and numeration effectively in prekindergarten–grade 2. The authors demonstrate how to use this knowledge to address the big ideas and essential understandings that students must develop for success with these concepts—not only in their current work, but also in higher-level mathematics and a myriad of real-world contexts. Use the opportunities that these and similar tasks provide to build on their understanding while identifying and correcting misunderstandings that may be keeping them from taking the next steps in learning.

    Putting Essential Understanding of Expressions and Equations Into Practice in Grades 6-8

    This book, the eleventh in the Putting Essential Understanding into Practice Series, focuses on misconceptions about variables, expressions, equations, and functions that students often bring to grades 6–8. The authors present tasks given to middle-grades students and examine sample responses to them to show how teachers can bring misconceptions to the surface, where they and their students can inspect them, recognize errors and limitations, and replace faulty thinking with robust ideas.
