The Wiley Advantage

• Rich learning activities are designed to get students to make sense of mathematics and to think deeply about mathematical concepts.  Students will find a number of quality activities that they can use directly with children along with samples of student responses.

• Weblinks: Students can find the latest research and activities on the web that support and extend the concepts in the book.

• Numerous activities are presented in each chapter using physical models for concept development and for fluency with skills.

• “For You as a Teacher: Ideas for Discussion and Your Professional Portfolio” is found at the conclusion of each chapter. This section provides an opportunity for students to reflect and write on selected discussion ideas that emerge from the chapter material.

• A section on the “Math Program” is found in nearly ever chapter, illustrating and commenting on materials from a variety of mathematics programs chosen from the K – 8 levels. Many of these are from programs that have been judged to be promising or exemplary by national panels.
