An “inquiry-based” approach to Mathematics that recognizes research and teaching that is currently taking place in Canadian classrooms.

Elementary and Middle School Mathematics guides both new and experienced teachers through a basic understanding of mathematics and problem solving, and encourages them to think about their own perceptions and misconceptions about mathematics. As well, it addresses potential pitfalls, and demonstrates how teachers can foster a favourable learning environment for their students.

The text covers concepts and procedures specific to mathematical topics encountered in grades K–8, using real experiences and assessment techniques to address the foundations of how children learn. The previous edition’s focus on teaching through problem solving now takes a broader focus on mathematical inquiry through rich tasks and classroom discourse.
