ab: Publisher’s description: How do your students determine whether a
mathematical statement is true? Do they rely on a teacher, a textbook,
or various examples? How can you encourage them to connect examples,
extend their ideas to new situations that they have not yet considered,
and reason more generally? How much do you know\dots and how much do
you need to know? Helping your students develop a robust understanding
of mathematical reasoning requires that you understand this mathematics
deeply. But what does that mean? This book focuses on essential
knowledge for teachers about mathematical reasoning. It is organized
around one big idea, supported by multiple smaller, interconnected
ideas ‒ essential understandings. Taking you beyond a simple
introduction to mathematical reasoning, the book will broaden and
deepen your mathematical understanding of one of the most challenging
topics for students ‒ and teachers. It will help you engage your
students, anticipate their perplexities, avoid pitfalls, and dispel
misconceptions. You will also learn to develop appropriate tasks,
techniques, and tools for assessing students’ understanding of the
topic.
