Bennett, Albert B.; Burton, Laurie J.; Nelson, Ted
Math for Elementary Teachers: A Conceptual Approach with Manipulative Kit Mathematics for Elementary Teachers: Mandatory Package
### ISBN 13: 9780077297930

Overview: Albert B. Bennett, Jr. and L. Ted Nelson have presented hundreds of workshops on how to give future teachers the conceptual understanding and procedural fluency they will need in order to successfully teach elementary-school mathematics. The Eighth Edition of Mathematics for Elementary Teachers: A Conceptual Approach continues their innovative, time-tested approach: an emphasis on learning via specific, realistic examples and the extensive use of visual aids, hands-on activities, problem-solving strategies and active classroom participation. Special features in the text ensure that prospective teachers will gain not only a deeper understanding of the mathematical concepts, but also a better sense of the connections between their college math courses and their future teaching experiences, along with helpful ideas for presenting math to their students in a way that will generate interest and enthusiasm. The text draws heavily on NCTM Standards and contains many pedagogical elements designed to foster reasoning, problem-solving and communication skills. The text also incorporates references to the virtual manipulative kit and other online resources that enhance the authors’ explanations and examples.

Models and diagrams are used extensively throughout the text to provide an extremely visual framework to help illustrate concepts.

Each section of the book contains a one-page activity which can be used for small group instruction, homework assignments, and ideas for projects or papers involving the design of an elementary school activity.

Each section begins with a Problem Opener relating to the topic at hand. These can be used for small group problem solving, as well as for classroom discussions.

Investigations-Computer, Calculator, or Laboratory - are located on the website. These sections pose questions which require collecting data; looking for patterns, and forming or verifying conjectures.

The text now includes algebraic concepts in Chapters 1 and 2, and the separate chapter on algebra has been eliminated.

The development of a website has led to a reduction in the length of the text. Portions of bibliographical references have been moved from the text to the website along with calculator and computer investigations. References to the location of these items may be found in the text (for example, see p. 135 and p. 204). A brief bibliography can still be found within the text (see pp. 789-793).
