Number Lines

Linear models of number are very important as they support the development of an informal internal representation of number magnitude, called the mental number line. Different models are best suited to the teaching of different skills and understandings at different levels. This book is designed to help teachers make the best use of number tracks, number grids, and both empty and calibrated number lines.

Teaching Mathematics through Problem Solving K-2
Frank K. Lester Jr. (ed.)

The main goal of the ‘teaching mathematics through problem solving’ approach is to help students develop a deep understanding of mathematical concepts and methods by engaging them in problematic tasks in which the mathematics to be learned is embedded. This book (together with its companion volume Teaching Mathematics through Problem Solving: Grades 6–12) aims to provide the coherence and direction teachers need to use problem solving to teach mathematics.

Articles by a variety of authors are grouped into four sections: ‘Issues and Perspectives’, ‘In the Classroom’, ‘The Role of Technology’ (which addresses not only the role that technology can play but also what it cannot do in helping teachers use a problem-based approach), and a final chapter which presents a research perspective. Incorporated throughout is a collection of ‘Teacher Stories’, in which individual teachers share their own experiences of teaching mathematics through problem solving.

An excellent resource which not only looks at the big questions but provides teachers with practical ideas to use in the classroom.
