An "inquiry-based" approach to Mathematics that recognizes research and teaching that is currently taking place in Canadian classrooms. Elementary and Middle School Mathematics guides both new and experienced teachers through a basic understanding of mathematics and problem solving, and encourages them to think about their own perceptions and misconceptions about mathematics. As well, it addresses potential pitfalls, and demonstrates how teachers can foster a favourable learning environment for their students. The text covers concepts and procedures specific to mathematical topics encountered in grades K-8, using real experiences and assessment techniques to address the foundations of how children learn. The previous edition's focus on teaching through problem solving now takes a broader focus on mathematical inquiry through rich tasks and classroom discourse.

This book is designed for elementary and middle school mathematics methods courses and for K-8 mathematics teacher professional development programs. It describes a new cognitive mathematics teaching and learning method: Model-Strategy-Application (MSA) approach. The aim of this book is to help pre-service and in-service teachers develop deep pedagogical content knowledge in a structured and systematic manner, and supports them in teaching mathematics and assessing student thinking effectively. The book focuses on developing students' mathematics proficiency in the three components of conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and competence in word problem solving through the MSA approach in every content area. To help students learn a mathematics concept with deep understanding, a variety of concrete or visual models are developed to address the mathematics concept; to build fluency in procedure and computation corresponding to the concept, various computational strategies including basic and specific techniques are developed; to learn how to apply the conceptual understanding and strategies to word problem solving, applications of different types and levels of word problems are introduced.
