It aims to help teachers reconceptualize mathematics as a problem-solving endeavor not as a mastery of rules and procedures. An accessible synthesis of viewpoints and current research, this highly praised text includes topics ranging from the development of basic fact mastery to the important development of qnumber senseq--All the while encouraging teachers to consider the construction of mathematics from the child's perspective.
