Publisher Synopsis

"An excellent, well-organized, well-written book-practical advice grounded in solid research and presented in compelling language." -- Robert Sylwester, Emeritus Professor of Education 20070508 "Totally absorbing. I found myself discussing different aspects of it with my colleagues and reading passages out loud to my husband. Any teacher who teaches math should have this on his or her book list." -- Carol Amos, Math Teacher 20070508 "This text is written the way we should be teaching-making you eagerly anticipate what is coming next." -- Renee Ponce-Nealon, Third-Grade Teacher 20070508 "The cognitive findings of this book are powerful and affirming and add support to my current work and practice. I took away powerful concepts that have enormous implications for teaching and learning mathematics." -- Daniel Raguse, President 20070508 "The very bottom line is that this book is about what is best for helping students learn mathematics and helping teachers teach it in a way that is purposeful and meaningful for their students." -- Deborah Gordon, Third-Grade Teacher 20070508 "The book's unique contribution to the field is the connection of research to educational practice, providing a common language for researchers and practitioners to begin dialogues about learning mathematics." -- Janice Bradley, Project Coordinator 20070508 "I am so impressed with this book that I believe it should be required reading for all teachers who teach math at any level." -- Mary Thoreen, Mathematics Teacher 20070508 "This book has actually changed the way I think now of teaching math in particular and learning in general, and I've been teaching math for over 25 years." -- Jim Barta, Associate Professor of Elementary Education 20070508 "Comes from a respected author and researcher who explores the latest neuroscientific findings in learning and math cognition. Pairs research with lesson plans specific to elementary and secondary school teachers." -- California Bookwatch, December 2007 20080129 "Teachers of all grade levels will be intrigued by Sousa's explanation of the brain processes involved in learning math concepts and why so many people find them difficult to understand. Developmentally appropriate math strategies and lessons for preK-12 students that focus on both memory and meaning are offered, along with a section on diagnosing and addressing difficulties in students." -- Curriculum Connections, Spring 2008 20080807 Read more...
