ab: From the Preface: “This text is for use in mathematics content courses
for prospective elementary and middle school teachers. We assume that
the students enrolled in these courses have completed two years of high
school algebra and one year of high school geometry\dots . The
principal goals of this text are to impart mathematical reasoning
skills, a deep conceptual understanding, and a positive attitude to
those who aspire to be elementary or middle school teachers\dots . The
text contains ample material for either two or three semester-length
courses.” The text has fourteen chapters and four appendices:
Thinking critically; Sets and whole numbers; Numeration and
computation; Number theory; Integers; Fractions and rational Numbers;
Decimals, real numbers, and proportional thinking; Algebraic reasoning,
graphing, and connections with geometry; Geometric figures;
Measurement: length, area, and volume; Transformations, symmetries, and
tilings; Congruence, constructions, and similarity; Statistics: the
interpretation of data; Probability; Appendix A: Manipulatives in the
mathematics classroom; Appendix B: Getting the most out of your
calculator; Appendix C: A brief guide to Geometer’s Sketchpad;
Appendix D: Resources
