The underlying philosophy behind this classic textbook is that students must first understand mathematics for themselves and learn to appreciate it before embarking on a career teaching children to do the same. The author John A. Van de Walle believed that teachers must also understand how children learn and take in mathematics before they can teach it effectively. This textbook is written in an engaging style with exceptional problem solving opportunities. Students will gain a thorough grounding in the fundamental concepts of teaching mathematics to elementary and middle school children. We offer many cheap mathematics textbooks through our extensive lists with alternatives to sell, buy or rent textbooks via our online market.
