Intended for the one- or two-semester course required of Education majors, Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers, 4/e, offers pre-service teachers a comprehensive mathematics course designed to foster concept development through examples, investigations, and explorations. Visual icons throughout the main text allow instructors to easily connect content to the hands-on activities in the corresponding Explorations Manual. In addition to presenting real-world problems that require active learning, Bassarear demonstrates that there may be many paths to finding a solution--and even more than one answer. With this exposure, future teachers are better prepared to assess student needs using diverse approaches.
