This book's 50-plus lessons-each based on a different picture book or story-will help classroom teachers build a foundation for teaching math, science, and social studies concepts to their students. Each lesson uses children's literature to make challenging, abstract concepts relevant to children's lives, inviting them to learn these concepts while responding to a story's illustrations, theme, characters, and plot. The lessons also demonstrate how teachers can use children's literature to meet national standards in math, science, and social studies. Chapters 1 through 5 set the stage for using picture books, discussing the effective, imaginative integration of literature into the classroom. Teachers will learn to create an environment that ensures that when children and books come together, the experience is enjoyable and thought provoking. Chapters 6 through 9 provide individual lessons, by grade level, with detailed activities based on specific books.

„Max Tegmark, Prophet der Parallelwelten, flirtet mit der Unendlichkeit.“ ULF VON RAUCHHAUPT, FRANKFURTER ALLGEMEINE SONNTAGSZEITUNG WORUM GEHT ES? Max Tegmark entwickelt eine neue Theorie des Kosmos: Das Universum selbst ist reine Mathematik. In diesem Buch geht es um die physikalische Realität des Kosmos, um den Urknall und die „Zeit davor“ und um die Evolution des Weltalls. Welche Rollen spielen wir dabei – die Wesen, die klug genug sind, das alles verstehen zu wollen? Tegmark findet, dieses Terrain sollte nicht länger den Philosophen überlassen bleiben. Denn die Physiker von heute haben die besseren Antworten auf die ewigen Fragen. WAS IST BESONDERS? „Eine hinreißende Expedition, die jenseits des konventionellen Denkens nach der wahren Bedeutung von Realität sucht.“ BBC „Tegmark behandelt die großen Fragen der Kosmologie und der Teilchenphysik weitaus verständlicher als Stephen Hawking.“ THE TIMES WER LIEST? • Jeder, der das Universum verstehen will • Die Leser von Richard Dawkins und Markus Gabriel

Mathematik durchdringt den ganzen Kosmos. Das weiß jeder, doch nur die wenigsten verstehen die Zusammenhänge wirklich. Steven Strogatz nimmt uns bei der Hand und spaziert mit uns durch diese Welt der Weisheit, Klarheit und Eleganz. Als Reiseleiter geht er neue, erfrischende Wege, deutet auf Besonderheiten, schildert Hintergründe und erklärt die unsichtbaren Mechanismen. Wir erfahren unter anderem von dem Wunder des Zählens, der genialen Einfachheit der Algebra, dem ewigen Erbe Newtons, dem Tango mit Quadraten, der Zweisamkeit von Primzahlen und der Macht des Unendlichen. Mit all seiner Begeisterung, seinem Scharfblick und seinem leichtem Ton hat Steven Strogatz ein herrliches Buch für alle geschrieben, die ihr Verständnis von Mathematik auf eine neue Art vertiefen möchten.

This groundbreaking resource was the first in its field to present practical, research-based guidance on creating integrated curriculum. It has been updated to reflect cutting-edge perspectives in literacy and language arts instruction. WEBS, the hallmark feature of "An Integrated Language Perspective in the Elementary School," enable readers to easily incorporate integrated units in the classroom. The fourth edition continues to offer practical and critical curriculum paradigms, and clearly shows the reciprocal relationship between assessment and instruction. Perfect for both pre-service and in-service K-8 teachers for its accessibility, the book is solidly grounded in cognitive, linguistic, and curriculum theory, but also does an excellent job of examining what goes on in the classroom minute-by-minute, day-by-day. Reviewers rave. . . "One major strength of this book is its approach to literacy education--integrating reading and writing instruction using thematic units." —"Diane Beals, University of Tulsa" "The prototypes are exemplary in that they emphasize the true interdisciplinary nature of carefully thought-out unit goals and objectives." --"Lillian McEnery, University of Houston" "Bravo! We need to begin preparing teachers to think like researchers even before they enter their classrooms. . . . It definitely does things other texts do not: it focuses on integrative teaching." --"Patricia Wheeler, Indiana State University"

With an emphasis on inquiry and process, "Teaching Mathematics in Elementary and Middle School "embraces active mathematics instruction and the development of mathematical thinking through problem solving. The text challenges future teachers to prepare their K-8 students for a world that requires a higher level of mathematical literacy and enables them to compete in a global society.Teachers will develop their own mathematical abilities, allowing them to help students discover a rich combination of thinking processes and problem-solving strategies, raising the learning expectations for all. Unique text features "TIE-Thought, Investigation and Exploration "features ask pre-service teachers to develop their own thinking and learning abilities, preparing them to better challenge their students. "Mathematics in the Real World," "Idea Files," and "Teacher Profiles "model best practices and supply readers with concrete teaching tools and strategies. "Mathematical Thinking," "Mathematical Games" and "Mathematics and Technology" features detail activities to engage and develop students' mathematical thinking. Accompanying student artifacts illustrate the progression of students' conceptual understanding. [CD logo replaces bullet] "Math Activities CD-ROM" provides an outstanding text component containing more than 100 activities that use a three-step process-explore, invent, discover-to foster the development of mathematical thinking through guided inquiry. Aligned with the NCTM standards, each activity is integrated within the text and designed to help develop students' conceptual understanding of mathematics. "Mathematics in Literature" offers thoroughly developed ideas for using children's literature to create meaningful contexts for mathematics learning. An extensive bibliography that can be used for this purpose appears on the CD-Rom. "I think the text is an excellent resource for elementary and middle school methods courses. In particular, I like how the textbook handles the 'bigger issues' such as geometric reasoning rather than just 'geometry.' I also like the excellent foundation in educational research that the textbook provides, as well as some very careful attention and consistent referencing to the NCTM standards and principles. The incorporation of classroom vignettes, teacher illustrations, and samples of student work also all add to the excellent grounding of the text in real world classroom work."
