Help students make sense of mathematics Rather than merely discussing how to improve students' ability to do mathematics, Sheffield and Cruikshank's Fifth Edition of qTeaching and Learning Elementary and Middle School Mathematicsq focuses on helping them make sense of mathematics. Based on research on the functioning of the mind as it engages in learning, the text supports teachers as they promote mathematical understanding, strengthen students' abilities to think, and help students to attain computational fluency. FeaturesA rich collection of ready-to-use learning activities. Activities are based on current research into student learning, mathematics instruction, and developmental practices.Fully integrated language and intent of Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM).A greater emphasis on problem solving and higher-level thinking using rich learning tasks that encourage in-depth reasoning and utilize a wide variety of physical models to exemplify mathematical concepts.A greater focus on teaching mathematics to diverse learners.Weblinks to the latest research and activities.Numerous opportunities for discussion and reflection on the ideas that emerge from the chapter material.Descriptions of a variety of promising and effective mathematics programs for the K - 8 levels.Orlando, FL: Harcourt, 1984.
