Overview

" I really like the Investigations in Number, Data, and Space feature because this gives students concrete ideas for short lesson that they can try during their field experience or in class. "-Sylvia Taube, Sam Houston State University

"I think the Stop and Reflect features are going to be useful in two ways. The first is that they prompt the student to stop in their reading and think about what they have read. It also promotes class discussions about the reading. Students can share their thoughts and reflections with the rest of the class. "-Janie Cates, State University of West Georgia

"Overall, this book is an excellent resource for those who are investigating the teaching of mathematics at the elementary and middle school levels. . . . Above all, the emphasis on student-centered problem solving is consistent with the current trends and practices. This book is unique in that it challenges assumptions and traditional practices. "-Kathleen Chamberlain, Lycoming College
