about

The goal of Visualizing Elementary and Middle School Mathematics Methods is to teach mathematics in a way that excites and motivates readers, with an accessible format that serves as an introduction to the teaching of mathematics. This text, in partnership with National Geographic, is designed to present mathematics content and pedagogy in a fresh new way. This unique approach, while maintaining necessary rigor, provides the opportunity to set aside previous beliefs about mathematics and to learn concepts and pedagogy from a new perspective.

The structure of Visualizing Elementary and Middle School Mathematics Methods is similar to the format of other methods texts, however, it has many unique features that are designed to be engaging and make the text relevant for readers. It begins with a brief summary of the history of mathematics. Diversity is integrated into the content of every chapter, through Multicultural Perspectives in Mathematics. Several chapters include Virtual Classroom Observation Videos.
