Conceived some of the most renowned educators in the field of math education, Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally continues to be the best reference in this niche, helping educators and those who want to teach math in the K-8 levels present the subject in a more effective, non-intimidating, and fun manner. John Van de Walle first developed the book to help education students develop a deeper understanding of math and teach them how to become more confident in teaching it. The author is a staunch follower of the constructivist-based instruction, which dictates that children be allowed to build their own knowledge. Van de Walle believed that teachers need to understand mathematics and at the same time know how their students learn so that they can teach the subject more effectively. Problem solving is another key ingredient of the book, emphasizing learning through exercise. This handy manual teaches readers how problem solving can also be used to learn new mathematical concepts instead of just practicing and applying math. It also says that problems should not only aim to seek answers but justifications of the methods used, so that learning becomes part of the solving process. Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally (7th Edition) ISBN 9780205573523 was carefully revised by Karen Karp and Jennifer Bay-Williams, who were keen on maintaining the authoritative style originally presented by the late Van de Walle. The 7th edition addresses the effects of standards-based instruction, teacher accountability, as well as increased pressure in testing. The book also puts more emphasis on assessments and objectives, as well as consideration for learners with special needs, including those coming from different cultures and children who are gifted. The latest edition even devotes a section on how to deal with math anxiety.
