Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers,3/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 the text to the hands-on activities in the corresponding Explorations Manual. An enhanced feature in this edition, Classroom Connection, helps pre-teachers anticipate issues they may face as teachers and helps them better understand how their future students might approach problems. Classroom Connectionsin both the exposition and the exercises guide students to connect the mathematics being taught with effective teaching strategies. Students must analyze educational mathematics research, evaluate common student errors, and see alternative solution methods, enabling them to better prepare for their future teaching careers. Investigationsencourage students to think about a topic before discussing the math or viewing examples. These can be used as classroom discussion questions, for independent reading, or as review. ADiscussion of the Investigationfollows and generally involves several solution paths. Multiple Strategiespresented throughout the examples and exposition of the text allow students to analyze numerous approaches to solving problems.
