Developing Essential Understanding of Number and Numeration for Teaching Mathematics in Pre-K-2

How do composing and decomposing numbers connect with the properties of addition? Focus on the ideas that you need to thoroughly understand in order to teach with confidence. The mathematical content of this book focuses on essential knowledge for teachers about numbers and number systems. It is organized around one big idea and supported by smaller, more specific, interconnected ideas (essential understandings). Gaining this understanding is essential because numbers and numeration are building blocks for other mathematical concepts and for thinking quantitatively about the real-world. This book contains three chapters: (1) Number and Numeration: The Big Ideas and Essential Understandings; (2) Connections: Looking Back and Ahead in Learning; and (3) Challenges: Learning, Teaching, and Assessing. Foreword (Henry Kepner, NCTM President), Preface, Introduction and References are also included.
