  1. The New Art and Science of Teaching Mathematics, Revised Edition

    In The New Art and Science of Teaching Mathematics, authors Nathan D. Lang-Raad and Robert J. Marzano explore how teachers can apply The New Art and Science of Teaching framework to teaching mathematics. This comprehensive book offers over one hundred detailed strategies for and examples of implementation. Throughout the book, the authors address the following design areas within three categories of teaching: (1) feedback, (2) content and (3) context. Each chapter includes self-rating scales teachers can use to assess their performance and determine areas of strength and improvement. Each chapter ends with guiding questions for curriculum design. This book will help all teachers address the learning outcomes for mathematics necessary for student success.

  2. Zeroing in on Number and Operations, Pre-K–K: Key Ideas and Common Misconceptions

    When you talk with students about their number sense and computational skills, you're bound to uncover some surprising gaps in their understanding. Knowing how to identify and bridge those gaps is essential for helping students at all levels advance as mathematical thinking. Sharing the insights they've gained through decades of mathematics teaching and research, Linda Dacey and Anne Collins help you focus on what students really need to know and understand at each year level. The modules for grades preschool and Foundation Year are organised into three sections: "Numbers", "Relationships" and "Addition and Subtraction". Each module begins with the identification of its mathematical focus and the potential challenges and misconceptions associated with those ideas.

  5. Moving Math: How to Use Thinking Skills to Help Students Make Sense of Mathematical Concepts and Support Numeracy Development

    Moving Math presents an opportunity for you, as an educator, to think differently about mathematics and help students use thinking skills to make sense of mathematics. Based on the premise that real learning involves a shift in thinking and doing, this practical book shows you how to create classroom conditions where students are eager to learn and grow. Cross-curricular thinking skills, inferring and interpreting, analysing, evaluating, making connections, synthesising, reasoning and proving, and reflecting, are deconstructed and modelled through suggested learning experiences across various year levels. The book describes how thinking skills can lead students to make better sense of mathematical concepts that support numeracy.

  6. It’s All Relative: Key Ideas and Common Misconceptions About Ratio and Proportion, Grades 6-7

    For years, students have been taught to cross multiply when presented with proportion problems. Few understand what they were doing or why they were doing it. Rarely were students invited to think about various representations to determine the relationship between the two ratios being compared. This guide will help you provide students with the conceptual understanding of ratios and proportional thinking that is essential for solving real-world problems and achieving success in higher-level mathematics. The authors particularly emphasise how to use visual models to represent ratios and proportional thinking. These visual models, which may be new to many teachers, enhance students' conceptual understanding and improve ability to solve a wide range of proportional reasoning problems.

  10. Could You Live Underwater?: A Design Thinking and STEM Curriculum Unit for Curious Learners

    In this engaging design thinking adventure, students utilise STEM skills and creative thinking to research, design and build prototypes of the underwater house of the future! After researching the effects of climate change on people throughout the world, learners narrow their focus to tackle an aspect of designing underwater that grabs their imaginations. The unit includes six modules with flexible time constraints, meaning teachers can implement the unit in as little as six class periods or as many as six weeks. At every stage, learners draw on creativity and collaboration as they build STEM skills while completing fun activities that meet the requirements of the Australian Curriculum: English and Technologies content descriptions for Years 5 and 6.

  12. The Young Artist as Scientist: What Can Leonardo Teach Us?

    This is the first in-depth look at the important connections between the arts and science specifically for early childhood education (Preschool-Year 3). Highlighting their many commonalities such as the processes involved in creative problem-solving, the author draws on what we can learn from Leonardo da Vinci as the supreme artist-scientist. Every chapter begins with a vignette of Leonardo and relates his thinking to the development of children's ideas in the arts and STEM (STEAM). This fresh look at the interdisciplinary connections of the arts and science offers early childhood teachers and administrators a spectrum of tools for connecting the creative arts (art, movement, drama and music) to the STEM movement, 21st-century skills and developmentally appropriate skills.
