Since its initial publication, MATHEMATICS: A GOOD BEGINNING has set the standard for math methods books. More than just a textbook, this is a complete instructional program that serves a multitude of curriculum needs. The book has been praised for its depth and clarity, its imaginative activities, and its attentiveness to the philosophy and recommendations of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). This edition is solidly grounded in the latest research on how children learn mathematics and how teachers develop attitudes, beliefs, and knowledge that promote successful teaching.
Extensively revised, this edition reflects current research in mathematics education, the philosophy and recommendations of the NCTM, and the growing use of technology in the classroom. Imaginative activities, practical teaching strategies, and clear explanations of mathematical concepts help teachers develop sound mathematics programs at the K-12 level. Includes an MGB program disk (Macintosh and MS-DOS versions). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
