"Math Essentials, Elementary School Level" gives elementary school teachers the tools they need to help prepare all types of students for mathematics testing in grades 3 through 5. "Math Essentials" highlights Dr. Thompson's proven approach to teaching math and covers 40 key objectives correlated to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards, including rounding whole numbers, finding equivalent fractions, multiplying two-digit whole numbers, solving word problems, interpreting line graphs, identifying polygons, estimating length and volume, and understanding time. The book is divided into five main sections, with each section containing eight objectives. Each objective includes three developmental lessons—one concrete, one pictorial, and one independent practice—and more than 100 related activity sheets. Practice tests are available at the end of each section, with an explanation of common errors made by students, to help teachers map their students' progress and to help students learn to perform in standardized testing situations. Praise for "Math Essentials, Elementary School Level" "A clear blueprint for teachers to progress from the manipulative experiences they provide for their classes to pictorial opportunities to an abstract level of thinking." —Jacqueline Weilmuenster, coordinator ofmathematics, Grapevine-Colleyville ISD, Grapevine, Texas "Effectively uses visual, verbal, and tactile methods in well-designed assessment activities." —Thomas Butts, Science and Mathematics Education, University of Texas at Dallas "A valuable resource for providing teachers the tools to develop independent math students." —Sandy Turner, elementary math coordinator, Irving ISD, Irving, Texas

Mathematics: Its Power and Utility

MATHEMATICS: ITS POWER AND UTILITY, 9e, combines a uniquely practical focus on real-world problem solving with a thorough and effective grounding in basic concepts and skills, allowing even the least-interested or worst-prepared student to appreciate the beauty and value of math while mastering course material. The first section of the book explores the power and historic impact of mathematics and helps students harness that power by developing an effective approach to problem solving. The second section builds on this foundation by applying math concepts to a wide variety of real-life situations--including money management; handling of credit cards; inflation; purchase of a car or home; use of probability, statistics, and surveys; and many more topics of interest to students. Unlike many introductory texts, MATHEMATICS: ITS POWER AND UTILITY, 9e, assumes only a basic working knowledge of arithmetic, making it effective even for students with no exposure to algebra; and completely self-contained chapters make it easy to teach to a customized syllabus or support the precise pace and emphasis that students require.

“Relax! The horror stories you have heard about adolescence are false.” This is Dr. Laurence Steinberg’s reassuring message to parents in this newly revised edition of his classic book You and Your Adolescent, which Publishers Weekly says is “filled with solid advice for the parents of adolescents.” Among the new topics in this updated edition: * An expanded definition of adolescence to age 25, recognizing that college graduates often remain dependent on their parents for an extended period, creating a new parent-child dynamic * A discussion of social media that addresses whether parents of preteens and young teens should monitor use of these new communication tools * What new research into the adolescent brain tells us about teenage behavior As Dr. Steinberg writes, “Most books written for parents of teenagers were survival guides (many still are). Nowadays, adolescence is too long—15 years in some families—for mere survival. Knowledge, not fortitude, is what today’s parents need. That’s where this book comes in.”
