Future elementary and middle schoolteachers need a clear, coherent presentation of the mathematical concepts, procedures, and processes they will be called upon to teach. This text uniquely balances what they will teach (concepts and content) with how to teach (processes and communication). As a result, students using Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers leave the course knowing more than basic math skills; they developa deep understanding of concepts that enables them to effectively teach others. This Fourth Edition features an increased focus on the 'big ideas' of mathematics, as well as the individual skills upon which those ideas are built.
