The eighth edition of Mathematics for Elementary Teachers: A Conceptual Approach continues the innovative timetested approach of the previous editions: an emphasis on learning via specific, realistic examples and the extensive use of visual aids, handson activities, problemsolving strategies and active classroom participation. Special features in the text ensure that prospective teachers will gain not only a deeper understanding of the mathematical concepts, but also a better sense of the connections between their college math courses and their future teaching experiences, along with helpful ideas for presenting math to their students in a way that will generate interest and enthusiasm. The text draws heavily on NCTM Standards and contains many pedagogical elements designed to foster reasoning, problemsolving and communication skills. The Eighth Edition will also incorporate intext references to the virtual manipulative kit and other online resources that enhance the authors’ explanations and examples.
