Overview

Teaching Student-Centered Mathematics : Developmentally Appropriate Instruction for Grades 6-8

By John A. Van de Walle, Jennifer M. Bay-Williams, Lou Ann H. Lovin, and Karen S. Karp

The Van de Walle Professional Mathematics Series provides practical guidance along with proven strategies for in-service teachers of mathematics.

Initially adapted from Van de Walle’s market-leading textbook, Elementary and Middle School Mathematics, the Professional Mathematics Series is specially designed for in-service teachers. Each volume focuses on the content relevant to a specific grade band and provides additional information on creating an effective classroom environment, engaging families, and aligning teaching to the Common Core State Standards. This Second Edition of the series provides strong support aligned with the latest developments in mathematics education. Changes include:

  • A New Part I: Establishing a Student-Centered Environment. Part I consists of seven chapters (all new) that address important ideas for creating a classroom environment where all children can succeed.
  • Connections to the Common Core State Standards. A priority in preparing the Second Edition was to align the material to the CCSS standards.
  • Coverage of Technology. Each chapter in Part II identifies effective, free technology that can help make content more visible, relevant, and interesting to students.
  • Full-size Blackline Masters. Available in Appendix C, the Blackline Masters are reproducible for teachers’ use with activities.

Volume III is tailored specifically to grades 6-8, allowing teachers to quickly and easily locate information to implement in their classes. The student-centered approach will result in successful math students, making these books indispensable for 6-8 classroom teachers!
