Item #: 275
# of Pages:88
Focus in Grade 3 shows teachers and other educators how they can incorporate NCTM’s Curriculum Focal Points into their current mathematics curricula. The book provides practical ideas for bringing focus to mathematics learning and instruction in the classroom.
Intended as a professional development tool, it presents self- and group-reflection tasks, sample student work, a sample state mathematics curriculum organized around the Focal Points, and other tools that teacher educators can use with the preservice teachers in their classes.
By focusing more intensely on fewer topics at each grade level, students gain a deeper understanding of mathematical ideas. This volume will help teachers think about what a focused curriculum means and how they might begin to build focus into their existing curricula. Copublished with NCTM.
