Product details Paperback Publisher: He was the Project Manager for the “Figure This! Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. Libeskind has extensive writing experience books, articles, and workshop materials as well as in directing mathematics education projects. Shlomo Libeskind is a professor in the mathematics department at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Oregon, and has been responsible there for the mathematics teaching major since

Icons within the text link the narrative to the appropriate school book page. Greater emphasis on algebra is found in the early chapters, which build upon previous knowledge, and in Chapter 8 Real Numbers and Algebraic Thinking which offers a more intensive focus. By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab Math personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student. Logical reasoning is now an integral part of Chapter 2. Extensive Problem Sets are organized into three categories for maximum instructor flexibility when assigning homework. The MyMathLab course for this text features all of the following and more: His doctorate is in mathematics education from Georgia State University.

During this visit he conducted observations and critiques of the preparation of mathematics leementary at several colleges in Northern Israel. He served as the site director for the Show-Me Projectan NSF-funded project supporting the dissemination and implementation of standards-based middle grades mathematics curricula.

English Choose a language for shopping. Aligned with the Common Core Standardsthis section focuses on designing studies and surveys. Connecting Mathematics to the Classroom exercises require interpretation and analysis of the thinking of typical K-8 students.

Geometry in three dimensions is included with the topics of area, the Pythagorean theorem, and volume. Problem-Solving Strategies are highlighted in italics, and Problem Solving Boxes throughout the text help students put these strategies to work.

Significantly streamlined for this revision, this chapter concentrates only on kott, their operations, and properties. Over algorithmically generated exercises parallel those in the text.

## Problem Solving Approach to Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers, A, 11th Edition

Libeskind uses a heuristic approach to problem solving and proof; in this approach the reasonableness of each step in a solution or proof is emphasized along with a discussion on why one direction might be more promising than another. A new MyMathLab exercise type asks students to watch a video and answer a related question. The treatment of many topics has been enhanced to reflect a tighter connection to the CCSS.

About the book Active learning helps future teachers develop their understanding of key skills and concepts, and it helps them prepare for their future classrooms.

Questions from the Classroom present questions as they might be posed by K-8 students. Now include a definition of addition for integers that uses absolute value–included because it is one of the techniques used in operations on integers in CCSS.

More exercises that address the CCSS have been added, particularly in the Mathematical Connections portion of the exercise sets. Some of the chapter opener scenarios and exercises have been revised to make them more relevant and engaging. Many topics have been enhanced to reflect a tighter connection to the CCSS.
