Discrete Mathematics for Teachers is a text designed to fill this void. The topic is right. Discrete mathematics provides a rich and varied source of problems for exploration and communication, expands knowledge of mathematics in directions related to elementary and middle school curricula, and is easily presented using our best understanding of the ways that mathematics is learned and taught. The presentation is right. In the spirit of NCTM's Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, topics are presented with careful attention to the best traditions of problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, connections with other disciplines and other areas of mathematics, and varied modes of representation.
