Initially adapted from Van de Walle’s market-leading textbook, Elementary and Middle School Mathematics, the Van de Walle Professional Mathematics Series are practical guides for developmentally appropriate, student-centered mathematics instruction from best selling mathematics methods authors John Van de Walle, LouAnn Lovin, Karen Karp, and Jennifer Bay-Williams. Specially designed for in-service teachers, each volume of the series focuses on the content relevant to a specific grade band and provides additional information on creating an effective classroom environment, engaging families, and aligning teaching to the Common Core State Standards. Additional activities and expanded lessons are also included.
The series has three objectives:
1. To illustrate what it means to teach student-centered, problem-based mathematics
2. To serve as a reference for the mathematics content and research-based instructional strategies suggested for pre-kindergarten to grade two, grades three to five, and grades six to eight
3. To present a large collection of high quality tasks and activities that can engage children in the mathematics that is important for them to learn
Volume I is tailored specifically to pre-kindergarten to grade 2, allowing teachers to quickly and easily locate information to implement in their classes. The student-centered approach will result in children who are successful in learning mathematics, making these books indispensable for Pre-K-2 classroom teachers!
A Unique Blend of Digital and Print Learning Resources!
5 Star student reviews:
“A must have for teachers-to-be, especially those who are a bit shaky on their maths knowledge!”
“Not many maths books keep me fixated but this is one that is definitely worth the money.”
“It is a book I will be using even when in the classroom.”
Mathematics Explained for Primary Teachers develops your understanding of mathematical concepts and processes, and how children learn them, so you can confidently teach mathematics to primary children. Tried and tested, the fifth edition of Derek Haylock’s much loved textbook matches the 2014 curriculum requirements for England. Every chapter integrates children’s learning, classroom practice, and teacher’s own requirements for subject knowledge, making this the ideal text to guide you through your studies and beyond.
More than just a book!
The new edition is supported by FREE access to an interactive eBook and a companion website allowing you to use a wealth of teaching and learning resources. You can use the eBook to study where and when you want, and read, annotate and search the book on a tablet, laptop or PC. You can also visit study.sagepub.com/haylock5e to access:Videos by the author introduce core themes of each section and explain key mathematical processes. Links to the National Curriculum specify the statutory requirements for primary schools in England that relate to the mathematical content of each chapter. Learning and Teaching points highlight important issues you may face in the classroom and provide practical guidance for teaching. Self-assessment questions help check your understanding and provide immediate feedback to see how well you have done. Select SAGE journal articles to support literature reviews and wider reading. Lesson Plan Activities by Ralph Manning support content-focused chapters and contain creative mathematics tasks across the primary age range.
A Student Workbook is also available to accompany this book, including over 700 practice problems to help you understand, apply and teach primary mathematics.
Derek Haylock is an education consultant and writer with a background in mathematics teaching, teacher education and classroom-based research in mathematics education.
