In chapter 1, the topic discussed is "Effective Mathematics Teaching in the Elementary Grades." Sections are devoted to key instructional behaviors, development, seatwork, homework, special review/maintenance, mental computation, instructional pace, starting and ending the lesson, and summary and integration. Lesson time tables are included for weeks 1, 2, and 3, and for week 4. Appendices to chapter 1 present specifics on questions, assignments, errors, a letter to parents, and grouping. Chapter 2 focuses on "Effective Mathematics Teaching in Junior High Schools." The final chapter , chapter 3, on "Verbal Problem Solving" discusses problems without numbers, writing verbal problems, estimating the answer, reading verbal problems, and writing an open sentence.
