    (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.

    Number and Operations, Part 1: Building A System of Tens Casebook

    The Building a System of Tens Casebook was developed as the key resource for participants’ Developing Mathematical Ideas seminar experience. The thirty cases, written by teachers describing real situations and actual student thinking in their classrooms, provide the basis of each session’s investigation of specific mathematical concepts and teaching strategies. Reading and discussing the cases under the guidance of the facilitator actively engages seminar participants in their own learning enterprise.

    Reimagining the Mathematics Classroom

    Reimagining the Mathematics Classroom presents a comprehensive systems approach to examining mathematics teaching. It synthesizes and illustrates current research on the essential elements of mathematics teaching and learning, unpacking each component—the classroom physical space, mathematical discourse, tasks, assessments, and families and communities—and providing concrete practical strategies and tools teachers can directly apply to their work. In addition, tips on using technology to assess and enhance learning are embedded throughout the book. Supplementary online teaching resources (math problem worksheets, conversational prompts, purposeful questions, videos, and so forth) can be accessed at NCTM’s More4U website.
