The primary purpose of Mathematics for Elementary Teachers: An Activity Approach is to engage prospective elementary and middle-school teachers in mathematical activities that will enhance their conceptual knowledge, introduce them to important manipulatives, and model the kind of mathematical learning experiences they will be expected to provide for their students. The activities incorporate inductive thinking and the use of physical models and visual images to develop concepts and encourage higher-level reasoning.

The Activity Approach text can be used independently or along with its companion volume, Mathematics for Elementary Teachers: A Conceptual Approach.
