This package includes the Enhanced Pearson eText and the print bound version.


Helping students make connections between mathematics and their worlds—and helping them feel empowered to use math in their lives—is the focus of this widely popular guide. Designed for classroom teachers, the book focuses on specific grade bands and includes information on creating an effective classroom environment, aligning teaching to various standards and practices, such as the Common Core State Standards and NCTM’s teaching practices, and engaging families. The first portion of the book addresses how to build a student-centered environment in which children can become mathematically proficient, while the second portion focuses on practical ways to teach important concepts in a student-centered fashion. The new edition features a corresponding Enhanced Pearson eText version with links to embedded videos, blackline masters, downloadable teacher resource and activity pages, lesson plans, activities correlated to the CCSS, and tables of common errors and misconceptions.

 

Invigorate learning with the Enhanced Pearson eText
The Enhanced Pearson eText provides a rich, interactive learning environment designed to improve student mastery of content with the following multimedia features:

  • NEW! Embedded videos throughout provide examples of students' misconceptions, expand on key concepts, and demonstrate how to implement strategies and techniques in real classrooms.
  • NEW! Downloadable Teacher Resource and Activity Pages that support teaching activities such as formative assessment and team-building are now available in the Enhanced Pearson eText at the point of use.
  • NEW! Downloadable Blackline Masters in Part 2 Chapters. Readers may download Blackline Masters that support the activities and Expanded Lessons by clicking on hyperlinks embedded in the Enhanced Pearson eText. Appendix C includes a list of the Blackline Masters and a thumbnail version of each.
