Summary

This leading K-8 math methods book has the most coverage of the NCTM standards, the strongest coverage of middle school mathematics, and the highest student approval of any math methods book currently available.Elementary and Middle School Mathematics provides an unparalleled depth of ideas and discussion to help readers develop a real understanding of the mathematics they teach. John Van de Walle, one of the foremost experts on how children learn mathematics, finds that 80 percent of the students who purchase this book keep it for reference when they begin their professional teaching careers. This book reflects the NCTM Principles and Standards and the benefits of constructivist-or student-centered-mathematics instruction. Improvements for the sixth edition include sections on planning for a diverse classroom and a completely new section addressing planning in a classroom where there are English language learners.
