pdf Math Methods for Preservice Elementary Teachers


The main audience for this short book is faculty who teach a Math Methods course for preservice elementary education teachers. I believe that most faculty who teach the Mathematics for Elementary Teachers course (most often taught in math departments) will also benefit from the book.

I have a third audience in mind. Please consider sharing this book with students taking a Math Methods course or a Math for Elementary Teachers course.

The book gives particular emphasis to three topics:
  1. Prerequisites for students and preparation of their faculty.
  2. Learning and teaching problem solving both in math and also “across the curriculum”
  3. Integration of Computer and Information Science into teaching, learning, doing, and using math.
