New semester, new course materials! New content including Virtual Manipulatives, Student Learning Videos and Practice Problems are now available for Bassarear/Moss, Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers, 7th edition. Assign these in your course to support deeper student learning and practice.
Keep reading to learn how to apply these new questions and resources to your course:
Engage Students with Interactive Virtual Manipulatives
We know students learn math best by first working with concrete shapes, then using visual models to help them understand and teach abstract concepts.
To engage students in the way they learn best, use Virtual Manipulatives in your course and help students investigate and explore arithmetic and fractions with the following tools.
Pattern blocks can be used for understanding fractions and for exploring geometry transformations, rotations, and translations found in chapter 10.
Base Blocks help students practice and visualize place value and arithmetic in bases 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, and 16 to match problems in the book.
Number Lines help students practice arithmetic problem in whole numbers, decimals, negative numbers and even fraction problems.
Multiplying Fractions and Mixed Numbers allow students to practice using the rectangle method.
WebAssign exercises using these virtual manipulatives are available to re-enforce in-classroom activities at home, as well as for supporting online courses.
We have added over 170 videos of elementary students explaining how they solve a math problem to show your students how elementary school students think about math.
These videos allow you to:
You can incorporate these videos into your course as optional resources for your students, and are also available as assignable problems with questions for students to reflect on each video.
Practice makes perfect right? Exactly! Give your students access to an expansive selection of practice problems in arithmetic, fractions, ratios, percent, probability, geometry, and algebra.
These skill-driven problems provide students with extra practice, step-by-step tutorials, and customized practice to help them learn the math skills they need to teach their future students.
You can use practice problems in various ways to enhance the students’ learning experience, including the following ways.
