### Abstract:

"Thinking Like Mathematicians has already helped thousands of math teachers envision what can happen if they implement the NCTM Standards. It reveals that, with the right teaching strategies and curricula, students can become confident, creative, and actively involved in the math process. They can actually think like mathematicians." "Some of the best strategies for achieving these goals are modeled throughout Thinking Like Mathematicians, which has now been updated for Standards 2000. Through vignettes and anecdotes, you'll meet children - many of whom were previously unsuccessful at math - who are problem solvers and confident of their ability to reason mathematically, value the role of mathematics in their lives, and share that understanding with their peers and teachers. You'll also meet the teachers who planned for and implemented the programs that facilitate these mathematics learning processes."--Jacket.
