Adding it Up explores how students in pre-K through 8th grade learn mathematics and recommends ways that teaching, curricula, and teacher education should change to improve mathematics learning during these critical years.
The book identifies five interdependent components of mathematical proficiency and describes how students develop this proficiency. With examples and illustrations, Adding it Up presents a portrait of mathematics learning.
