A top-selling teacher resource line, The 100+ Series(TM) features over 100 reproducible activities in each book! --Help students achieve their personal best with Timed Math Tests--Addition and Subtraction. Each NCTM standards-based test includes approximately twenty math problems organized by operation, and progressing in difficulty. The book also includes review tests and every test is ready to reproduce and hand out. Each book features 128 perforated, reproducible pages and student record charts and testing tips are also included.
This book has more than 3100 addition facts for daily practice by students. Each page has 2 different sets consisting of 18 problems each. It is recommended for students to attempt 1 set daily for consistent practice. Book starts with addition strategies to help students grasp basic concepts and get started. Once students start gaining confidence in individual facts, they can review their knowledge by solving mixed facts. Book can be used to track practice time for each set. Date and time can be recorded at top of each page. Answer to each problem is given at the end of the book. Addition facts table is available at the end of the problems for easy reference. Knowing addition facts is helpful not only in academics; we frequently use addition in our daily lives too. Just like learning to walk before you can run, learning addition and familiarizing yourself with numbers are building blocks for other math topics taught in school - such as division, long multiplication, fractions and algebra. Mastering the basic math facts develops automaticity in kids. Automaticity is the ability to do things without occupying the mind with the low level details that are required; this is usually the result of consistent learning, repetition, and practice. For instance, an experienced cyclist does not have to concentrate on turning the pedals, balancing, and holding on to the handlebars. Instead, those processes are automatic and the cyclist can concentrate on watching the road, the traffic, and other surroundings. Until students have developed sufficient sensory-cognitive tools supporting access to symbolic memory, they will not be able to image, store or retrieve all of the basic facts with automaticity. Therefore, students need a comprehensive, developmental, and multi-sensory structured system for developing automaticity with the facts.

This book has more than 3100 multiplication facts for daily practice by students. Each page has 2 different sets consisting of 18 problems each. It is recommended for students to attempt 1 set daily for consistent practice. Book starts and ends with times table charts for easy reference followed by some quick multiplication facts. Once students start gaining confidence in individual facts, they can attempt mixed facts. Book can be used to track practice time for each set. Date and time can be recorded at top of each page. Answer to each problem is given at the end of the book. Knowing multiplication facts is helpful not only in academics; we frequently use multiplication in our daily lives too.

Adding It Up explores how students in pre-K through 8th grade learn mathematics and recommends how teaching, curricula, and teacher education should change to improve mathematics learning during these critical years. The committee identifies five interdependent components of mathematical proficiency and describes how students develop this proficiency. With examples and illustrations, the book presents a portrait of mathematics learning: Research findings on what children know about numbers by the time they arrive in pre-K and the implications for mathematics instruction. Details on the processes by which students acquire mathematical proficiency with whole numbers, rational numbers, and integers, as well as beginning algebra, geometry, measurement, and probability and statistics. The committee discusses what is known from research about teaching for mathematics proficiency, focusing on the interactions between teachers and students around educational materials and how teachers develop proficiency in teaching mathematics.
First released in the Spring of 1999, How People Learn has been expanded to show how the theories and insights from the original book can translate into actions and practice, now making a real connection between classroom activities and learning behavior. This edition includes far-reaching suggestions for research that could increase the impact that classroom teaching has on actual learning. Like the original edition, this book offers exciting new research about the mind and the brain that provides answers to a number of compelling questions. When do infants begin to learn? How do experts learn and how is this different from non-experts? What can teachers and schools do-with curricula, classroom settings, and teaching methods--to help children learn most effectively? New evidence from many branches of science has significantly added to our understanding of what it means to know, from the neural processes that occur during learning to the influence of culture on what people see and absorb. How People Learn examines these findings and their implications for what we teach, how we teach it, and how we assess what our children learn. The book uses exemplary teaching to illustrate how approaches based on what we now know result in in-depth learning. This new knowledge calls into question concepts and practices firmly entrenched in our current education system. Topics include: How learning actually changes the physical structure of the brain. How existing knowledge affects what people notice and how they learn. What the thought processes of experts tell us about how to teach. The amazing learning potential of infants. The relationship of classroom learning and everyday settings of community and workplace. Learning needs and opportunities for teachers. A realistic look at the role of technology in education.

Early childhood mathematics is vitally important for young children's present and future educational success. Research demonstrates that virtually all young children have the capability to learn and become competent in mathematics. Furthermore, young children enjoy their early informal experiences with mathematics. Unfortunately, many children's potential in mathematics is not fully realized, especially those children who are economically disadvantaged. This is due, in part, to a lack of opportunities to learn mathematics in early childhood settings or through everyday experiences in the home and in their communities. Improvements in early childhood mathematics education can provide young children with the foundation for school success. Relying on a comprehensive review of the research, Mathematics Learning in Early Childhood lays out the critical areas that should be the focus of young children's early mathematics education, explores the extent to which they are currently being incorporated in early childhood settings, and identifies the changes needed to improve the quality of mathematics experiences for young children. This book serves as a call to action to improve the state of early childhood mathematics. It will be especially useful for policy makers and practitioners-those who work directly with children and their families in shaping the policies that affect the education of young children.
