Part of a new generation of textbooks for in-service and pre-service teachers at the junior-senior level, this text teaches in three main ways: it extends students' breadth of knowledge beyond, but related to, the topics covered in elementary and middle-grade curriculums; it increases prospective teachers' depth of mathematical understanding by providing problems rich in exploration and mathematical communication; and it models the most current ways of teaching mathematics. Many Section Openers begin with a motivating lesson that introduces a new topic in an understandable, real-world context. Exercise Sets at the end of every section provide more traditional practice and are labeled either Proof Exercises or Writing Exercises. Exploratory Exercises at the end of every section lead students to investigate topics outside the framework presented in the section. The final exercise in each section is a writing exercise.Ed Wheeler is the author of 'Discrete Mathematics For Teachers: Preliminary Edition', published 2004 under ISBN 9780618433926 and ISBN 0618433929.
