"Putting together a book for teachers that contains 'tried and tested' lessons created by award-winning educators is very important and useful. The activities can be used to help students understand the reason for the algorithms. Students should not just learn 'how,' but also 'why.'"
"This is a much needed resource book for both inservice and preservice teachers."
"The activities presented provide a foundation that allows an elementary school teacher to make sense out of the mathematics being taught. The book will appeal to teachers because the lessons begin at a very basic level but methodically progress to a higher level of mathematical thinking."
"The author has successfully created a resource book for teachers that accomplishes the goal of 'more discovery and more connections between topics' for mathematics classrooms, which will result in more student engagement. This book will be a valuable resource to new teachers looking for appropriate lessons tied to curriculum standards, veteran teachers looking for new ideas for content-specific activities, and college instructors of preservice and inservice teachers."
