Concept-Rich Mathematics Instruction

Building a Strong Foundation for Reasoning and Problem Solving

Concept-Rich Mathematics Instruction
Meir Ben-Hur

Have your students actually learned mathematical concepts, or have they merely memorised facts and formulae? This book identifies common student misconceptions and discusses the critical role that teachers play in prompting their correction. Using familiar classroom anecdotes and sample problems, the author navigates the reader through teaching practices, instruction ideas and assessment types. Suggestions are given on incorporating thought-provoking activities into lessons, assessment and conducting individual and class discussions. Relevant for the classroom practitioner, curriculum leaders will also find many ideas to stimulate discussion and guide teachers to improve methodologies.
