Publisher: Los Angeles : SAGE/Learning Matters, [2014]

Summary:     Lesson planning in line with the new Primary National Curriculum! Structured around the number and place value sections of the programmes of study within the National Curriculum (DfE, 2013), this book provides practical examples and lesson ideas on how number and place value can be taught within the primary classroom. Children need an in-depth understanding of our number system in order to access effectively other elements of the number curriculum; this is an area of maths that is a high focus throughout the primary curriculum. The accompanying commentary before and after each lesson plan, informs some of the decisions that you will make as part of the planning process. Potential challenges associated with the lesson, including common errors and misconceptions children encounter are also discussed. The authors recognise that each class is unique and so you will find suggestions after each lesson on how it can be adapted and developed to suit your teaching needs.

Language: English  

Publisher: Princeton : Princeton University Press, [2014]

Summary:     The natural numbers have been studied for thousands of years, yet most undergraduate textbooks present number theory as a long list of theorems with little mention of how these results were discovered or why they are important. This book emphasizes the historical development of number theory, describing methods, theorems, and proofs in the contexts in which they originated, and providing an accessible introduction to one of the most fascinating subjects in mathematics. Written in an informal style by an award-winning teacher, Number Theory covers prime numbers, Fibonacci numbers, and a host of other essential topics in number theory, while also telling the stories of the great mathematicians behind these developments, including Euclid, Carl Friedrich Gauss, and Sophie Germain. This one-of-a-kind introductory textbook features an extensive set of problems that enable students to actively reinforce and extend their understanding of the material, as well as fully worked solutions for many of these problems. It also includes helpful hints for when students are unsure of how to get started on a given problem. * Uses a unique historical approach to teaching number theory * Features numerous problems, helpful hints, and fully worked solutions * Discusses fun topics like Pythagorean tuning in music, Sudoku puzzles, and arithmetic progressions of primes * Includes an introduction to Sage, an easy-to-learn yet powerful open-source mathematics software package * Ideal for undergraduate mathematics majors as well as non-math majors * Digital solutions manual.

Language: English  

Publisher: Thousand Oaks, California : Corwin, [2015]

Summary:     This book shows readers how to use assessment to inform instruction and learning in the science classroom. In the bestselling first volume, Page Keeley shared 75 techniques that help K-12 science teachers determine students' understanding of key concepts and design learning opportunities that will deepend students' mastery of content and standards. Volume 2 will present 50 new strategies linked to the Next Generation Science Standards. These flexible assessments can be used with any science curriculum. The assessments include: - a description of how each technique promotes student learning - considerations for design and implementation, such as required materials, timing, modeling the technique, and grouping students - modifications for different types of students or purposes - caveats for using each technique - ways the techniques can be used in other content areas.
