The entries are arranged alphabetically, and each contains a brief definition, followed by. School maths is often about understanding mathematical concepts intuitively via rote learning, repetition and visualization. This book teaches you how mathematical knowledge is arrived at by looking carefully at a few simple ideas and building upon them/5.

The first mathematical operation that students learn is addition, followed closely by subtraction. Students begin studying these skills through the use of manipulatives, or physical tools that represent objects, as early as pre-school, and continue building their skills, adding and subtracting ever larger numbers through elementary school.

Upper elementary teachers have a big job: to help students deepen their mathematical understanding and become more efficient mathematicians. Number Sense Routines: Building Mathematical Understanding Every Day in Grades 3–5 is about tapping into every child’s innate sense of number and providing daily, connected experiences that are responsive to children’s learning needs.

An elementary math curriculum for supplementary or home school should teach much more than the “how to” of simple arithmetic. A good math curriculum should have elementary math activities that build a solid foundation which is both deep and broad, conceptual and “how to”.

The lessons and activities spiral slowly, allowing students to become comfortable with concepts, but also challenging them to continue building their problem-solving skills. This book teaches more than mathematical concepts; it teaches mathematical reasoning, so students learn to devise different strategies to solve a wide variety of math problems.

Excellent, excellent book. I keep it on hand and refer to it all the time. I highly recommend it. Parents who are interested in helping their children understand math could read the initial chapters about the foundations of teaching math and then refer to section 2 when teaching specific concepts.4/5.

A recent report of the National Research Council, 2 Adding It Up, reviews a broad research base on the teaching and learning of elementary school report argues for an instructional goal of “mathematical proficiency,” a much broader outcome than mastery of procedures. How do composing and decomposing numbers connect with the properties of addition.
