  1. Transform Your K-5 Math Class: Digital Age Tools to Spark Learning

    Instead of drill-and-practice apps and worksheets, what if technology enabled exploration of mathematics concepts? Instead of screens for disconnected individual learning, what if technology fostered mathematical discourse and collaboration? Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching mathematics, what if we used technology to differentiate to meet students’ diverse needs? Technology has the power to support the teaching and learning of mathematics content at all grade levels, but the presence of technology is insufficient unless it’s paired with effective teaching practices and meaningful content. This book poses and unpacks the above questions and many more, with detailed classroom examples to illustrate practical strategies for integrating technology in the F-5 classroom.

  2. Thinking Like a Mathematician: Lessons that Develop Habits of Mind and Thinking Skills for Gifted Young Mathematicians in Years 3-4

    Thinking Like a Mathematician focuses on high-interest, career-related topics in the primary curriculum related to mathematics. Students will explore interdisciplinary content, foster creativity and develop higher-order thinking skills with activities aligned to relevant learning area standards. Students will engage in exploration activities, complete mathematical challenges and then apply what they have learned by making real-world connections. Thinking Like a Mathematician reflects key emphases of curricula from the Center for Gifted Education at William & Mary, including the development of process skills in various learning areas and the enhancement of discipline-specific thinking and habits of mind through hands-on activities.

  3. Number Sense Routines: Building Mathematical Understanding Every Day in Grades 3-5

    Number Sense Routines: Developing Mathematical Understanding Every Day in Grades 3-5 is about tapping into every child’s sense of number and providing daily, connected experiences that are responsive to children's learning needs. Through familiar five-, ten- or fifteen-minute warm-up routines, Jessica Shumway offers both beginner and veteran teachers easy and effective ways to build and solidify students' number sense foundations. Not only will these routines help develop students' mathematical understanding as they move towards using standard algorithm, but they will also help teachers learn to better recognise the big ideas that emerge in discussions, how to encourage important strategies based in number sense and how to facilitate discussions on key mathematical concepts.
