This book is an attempt to answer the most popular question asked by students in this course. The best way that the authors have found to demonstrate to students the need to learn certain topics is to bring pages from a real K-8 textbook. This allows students to see when and where a topic occurs in the curriculum and also to see how it is presented in a text. Thus, each topic in this book has four components: a brief discussion of the topic, pages from a school text, a set of problems that focus on skills, and a set of problems that focus on concepts. The topics are arranged as you find them in most MET books. The topics that are presented in the manual are those with which students usually have the most trouble.Taylor, Sharon E. is the author of 'When Will I Ever Teach This Activities for Mathematics for Elementary Teachers', published 2003 under ISBN 9780321237170 and ISBN 032123717X.
