I have used this book for years with my preservice education students and not one semester has gone by without the majority of my students saying 'this is the one book I would even think of selling'. I have also found teachers (former students of mine) who were once in my classroom tell me that they use this book as one of their daily tools in the classroom.

The book came in a trashy condition, the envelope was torn and the book was falling out of its packaging. The book itself is horrible. It came with paper of another students work. I would stay away from this seller.

A must have book for both in-service and pre-service teachers. A great resource to help a teacher understand the developmental trajectory of a mathematical concept. If you have a student who is not understanding a concept, you can use this book to better understand the developmental hierarchy of skills so they can grow in their mathematical understanding. It also has great activities to support their learning.
