This thorough and practical guide to teaching pre-school through sixth grade level mathematics for the pre-service and in-service elementary school teacher is a perfect combination of a math methods text and resource book. The text's organization uses the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards as its overarching framework; a rich variety of chapter activities reinforces the standards.
