Overview

NCTM's Process Standards support teaching that helps children develop independent, effective mathematical thinking. The books in the Heinemann Math Process Standards Series give every primary teacher the opportunity to explore each standard in depth. With language and examples that don't require prior math training to understand, the series offers friendly, reassuring advice and ready-to-use examples to any teacher ready to embrace the Process Standards.

In Introduction to Communication, Susan O'Connell and Kelly O'Connor show you ways to help students explore, express, and better understand mathematical content through talking and writing. They offer an array of entry points for understanding, planning, and teaching, including strategies that help students put their ideas into words, clarify them, elaborate on them, and ultimately produce clear and organized math writing.

The book and accompanying CD-ROM are filled with activities that are

  • modifiable for immediate use with students of all levels
  • customizable to match your specific lessons.

In addition, a correlation guide helps you match the math content you teach with the mathematical processes it utilizes.

If your students struggle to describe their mathematical thinking, or if you're simply looking for new ways to work the communication standard into your curriculum, read, dog-ear, and teach with Introduction to Communication. And if you'd like to learn about any of NCTM's process standards, or if you're looking for new, classroom-tested ways to address them in your math teaching, look no further than Heinemann's Math Process Standards Series. You'll find them explained in the most understandable and practical way: from one teacher to another.
