Book Description

This book helps pre-service teachers become more effective problem-solvers so they can better teach their students. Designed to reach the inner mathematician in each reader, this book focuses on practical suggestions and tools. It goes beyond rote procedures for solving problems and emphasizes non-traditional methods that make sense to students.

After a brief history of math education, the book discusses current standards and general problem-solving. Each subsequent chapter discusses a specific area of instruction and how to teach it effectively. Target skills include sets and Venn diagrams, whole numbers, fractions and decimals, percent, integers, and real numbers. Readers learn various ways to approach and work through the problems in order to meet the varied needs of their students.

The book is appropriate for elementary school education programs for pre-service teachers. It is also an excellent reference for teaching professionals seeking to improve their skills as math educators.
