At its core, problem-based learning offers students a "messy," complex problem that requires research and critical thinking to resolve. Because the Internet is such a powerful research tool, it is tailor-made for use in problem-based learning. This guide coaches both educators and students on using the Internet to solve complex problems. Teachers are introduced to how the Internet is organized and how to access its resources without too much technical information. Students are given eight problem-based learning scenarios that put them in the role of a particular character. Successful completion of these scenarios requires extensive Internet research and all of the steps of problem solving, including mapping and defining. Teaching notes and reproducible problem logs are included.Grades 3--6

Tasks in Primary Mathematics Teacher Education is intended to advance relevant research and innovative international practices in the preparation and professional development of mathematics teachers. Emerging from discussion at the ICMI study on teacher professional development, this volume, focused on primary and elementary teachers, culls a richness that can only be found by gathering wisdom from varied experiences around the world. The choice of tasks, and the associated pedagogies, is a key aspect of teaching and learning mathematics. Arguing that what students learn is largely defined by the tasks they are given, several major themes are presented. One such major strand, the form, function and focus of tasks, is discussed throughout several chapters, offering analysis, discussion of implementation, and exemplars of a broader category of illustrative techniques for developing critical understanding.

Making Mathematics Meaningful For Students in the Primary Grades shares practical suggestions and unique strategies that will contribute to making mathematics meaningful for young learners. Werner Liedtke is a former elementary educator who has partnered with primary teachers in the classroom environment and authored and co-authored several books and articles about mathematics teaching, learning and assessment, and specific aspects of the mathematics curriculum. He brings a wealth of expertise while sharing valuable information that helps educators, tutors, and parents who homeschool, reach the major goals of the mathematics curriculum. Liedtke includes suggestions for accurate assessment and reporting as well as prompts that illustrate question strategies, all while providing fun and imaginative activities that will help students: * Develop number sense - visualize numbers. * Develop spatial sense imagery and visual thinking. * Learn basic addition and subtraction facts. * Develop mental mathematics strategies. * Foster problem solving abilities, confidence, and mathematical reasoning. The strategies and activities included in this compendium will not only help young learners reach success with mathematics and encourage creative thinking, but will also contribute to their language development, reading comprehension, and the development of evaluative skills.

This twenty-third ICMI Study addresses for the first time mathematics teaching and learning in the primary school (and pre-school) setting, while also taking international perspectives, socio-cultural diversity and institutional constraints into account. One of the main challenges of designing the first ICMI primary school study of this kind is the complex nature of mathematics at the early level. Accordingly, a focus area that is central to the discussion was chosen, together with a number of related questions. The broad area of Whole Number Arithmetic (WNA), including operations and relations and arithmetic word problems, forms the core content of all primary mathematics curricula. The study of this core content area is often regarded as foundational for later mathematics learning. However, the principles and main goals of instruction on the foundational concepts and skills in WNA are far from universally agreed upon, and practice varies substantially from country to country. As such, this study presents a meta-level analysis and synthesis of what is currently known about WNA, providing a useful base from which to gauge gaps and shortcomings, as well as an opportunity to learn from the practices of different countries and contexts.
