About teaching mathematics: a K-8 resource
About Teaching Mathematics quickly became a much sought-after resource upon its publication in 1992. With more than 200,000 copies in print, it presents information necessary for teachers to teach math through problem solving, to understand the math they are responsible for teaching, and to understand how children best learn math.
Now Marilyn Burns has updated and expanded this important resource, including an entirely new fifty-page section, "Mathematical Discussion." Here she addresses many of the problems and activities in the text, presenting the underlying mathematics for each as well as solutions. Another new section, "Extending Multiplication and Division, " addresses how to help students deal with large number computation. Burns has also made numerous changes to the section on fractions and has clarified and reorganized points throughout the book to make her ideas as clear and accessible as possible.
About Teaching Mathematics now gives teachers an even better guide for making appropriate and effective instructional decisions. It is an essential resource for all teachers of K -- 8 mathematics.
