“The purpose of this book is to help elementary school teachers understand the importance of using what we now know about cognitive and language development in order to broaden their repertoire of strategies for teaching mathematics.”
—Arthur Hyde

Read a sample chapter from Arthur Hyde’s newest book, Comprehending Problem Solving. In it, Art discusses the importance of not just what we teach (the content), but how we teach it (the process). Chapter 1 (Attending to Cognitive Processes) includes:

  • How new mathematical understandings are built on a foundation of existing experiences
  • Examples of how children can create frameworks to organize their mathematical thinking
  • The importance of metacognition in mathematics education
