The Mathematics Teacher
Mathwise, written especially for teachers in grades three through six, introduces teachers to a broad view of what it means for students to do mathematics. Arthur and Pamela Hyde explore the powerful kinds of mathematical thinking that students are capable of doing and offer exciting approaches, methods, and strategies for teaching that will foster this capability.
By building a bridge between students' lives and the key concepts of the curriculum, Mathwise helps teachers make mathematics a meaningful part of their students' world.
