Helping Children Learn Mathematics, 10th Edition

Helping Children Learn Mathematics, 10th Edition (EHEP001997) cover image
Helping Children Learn Mathematics, Tenth Edition reflects the ever changing world of learning and teaching elementary school mathematics. Change is everywhere. Teachers of mathematics in elementary school not only experience change but, more important, also have an opportunity to help lead the way. This edition of Helping Children Learn Mathematics is built around three main themes; helping children make sense of mathematics, incorporating practical experiences and research to guide teaching, and emphasizing major ideas from the 2010 Common Core State Standards: Mathematics.

This text is intended for those who are or who will be teachers of mathematics in elementary school. It is designed to help readers, help children.
