For courses in Math for Future Elementary Teachers. Empowering Tomorrow's Math Teachers Mathematics for Future Elementary Teachers , 5 th Edition connects the foundations of teaching elementary math and the "why" behind procedures, formulas and reasoning so students gain a deeper understanding to bring into their own classrooms. Through her text, Beckmann teaches mathematical principles while addressing the realities of being a teacher. With in-class collaboration and activities, she challenges students to be actively engaged. An inquiry-based approach to this course allows future teachers to learn through exploration and group work, leading to a deeper understanding of mathematics. Known for her contributions in math education, Sybilla Beckmann writes the leading text for the inquiry approach-in Mathematics for Elementary Teachers with Activities, students engage, explore, discuss, and ultimately reach a true understanding of mathematics. Beckmann's text covers the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) now implemented in most states. However, states not following Common Core will not find the information intrusive in the text. Also available with MyLab Math. MyLab(tm) Math is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. The Skills Review MyLab Math provides review and skill development that complements the text, helping students brush-up on skills needed to be successful in class. The MyLab Math course doesn't mirror the problems from the text, but instead covers basic skills needed prior to class, eliminating the need to spend valuable class time re-teaching basics that students should already know. This enables students to have a richer experience in the classroom while working through the book activities and problems. In addition to basic skills review, the MyLab Math course includes a wealth of resources to help students visualize the concepts and understand how they come into play in an elementary classroom. These includes IMAP videos, Responding to Students Videos, eManipulatives, and brand new Common Core videos, Demonstration videos, and GeoGebra animations.
