“I have read many books on math education, and I feel that this one is unique and offers something new. Teachers, coaches, and administrators are looking for a book that helps with the how in terms of moving instruction to more conceptual learning, and this book is a step toward that.”

Becky Elliott, assistant principal, Academy of the Holy Names, Tampa, Florida

“Understanding mathematics is different from understanding how to teach mathematics, and this book is a valuable resource for anyone involved in mathematics in grades 3 to 5. It not only provides clear descriptions of the main ideas in intermediate mathematics, but also how those main ideas progress from Kindergarten through the end of fifth grade. The authors provide readers with multiple representations of each concept, as well as ways to implement these ideas in the classroom. I particularly appreciate the authors' focus on what we want students to learn and do, how we know if they have learned those things, and what we do from therenot only if students have not learned those things, but also what do we do next if students learn what we want them to learn. I will be incorporating many of these strategies into my graduate-level math education courses.”

Matthew Reames, mathematics educator, Curry School of Education, University of VirginiaCharlottesville
