MATHEMATICS FOR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHERS is designed to give prospective elementary school teachers a profound understanding of the mathematical content they are expected to know and be able to teach. Chapters integrate and are built around the NCTM Standards and Expectations, the new Common Core Standards and highlights from research literature. As a result students follow a precise learning path that begins with the "Where Are We Going?" Chapter Openers to the Yellow Markers showing the process standards throughout the context, to the Concept Maps, to the Section Problem Sets with their "refreshers" of process standards as directions, to the Chapter Organizer with Learning Outcomes, and finally, conclude at the Chapter Test with their overarching Learning Outcomes. The author steadfastly guides the student through the course and the many concepts from the content standards using the process standards and Learning Outcomes to teach students to become better students and hence better prospective teachers.
