The new edition of Reys' Helping Children Learn Mathematics
examines the forthcoming Common Core Standards and refocuses the themes for the book to make sure they are timely, significant and parallel in form. The three themes threaded throughout the book are: Best Practices, Sense Making and Practical Experiences.
The text strengthens the attention given to diversity by carefully examining the Cultural Connections sections to make sure they address, when appropriate, practical experience suggestions for dealing with diversity. Other updates include new entries in the Book Nooks; an expanded list of Book Nook recommendations; updated references including all research citations; and links from the narrative to appropriate intact lessons that currently are in Teaching Elementary Mathematics: A Resource for Field Experiences.
