Praise for Elementary and Middle School Mathematics.
“Overall, this book is an excellent resource for those who are investigating the teaching of mathematics at the elementary and middle school levels...Above all, the emphasis on student-centered problem solving is consistent with current trends and practices. This book is unique in that it challenges assumptions and traditional practices.”
Katherine Chamberlain, Lycoming College
“I have used Van de Walle since it came on the market and still feel it is, by far, the best available! The layout is excellent. The philosophical basis of the text is superb-It's easy to read by both undergraduates and graduate students in that it makes connections between their experiences and the philosophical foundations. Three major strengths include the references to the NCTM Standards, inclusion of algebraic thought at all grade levels, and the continued development of the same themes and philosophical foundations.”
Tim Whiteford, Trinity College of Vermont
“ [One] of the major reasons why Van de Walle's text is so useful...is the text's involvement of the reader in the development of ‘mathematical reasoning.’ It creates a thinker.”
Timothy Touzel, Coastal Carolina University
