As part of his focus on the improvement of the teaching of mathematics, Dr.
Libeskind is also involved at many levels locally, nationally, and worldwide in the evaluation of mathematics teacher preparation programs.
A Problem Solving Approach to Mathematics for Elementary School Teachers has always reflected the content and processes set forth in today's new state mathematics standards and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
Problem Solving Approach In Mathematics
In the Twelfth Edition, the authors have further tightened the connections to the CCSS and made them more explicit.He served as the site director for the Show-Me Project, an NSF-funded project supporting the dissemination and implementation of standards-based middle grades mathematics curricula.He worked on the NSF grant Tinker Plots to develop new data analysis software and he serves on the Advisory Boards for several other national projects.During this visit he conducted observations and critiques of the preparation of mathematics teachers at several colleges in Northern Israel. Libeskind received his Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Mathematics at the Technion (Israel Institute of Technology) and his Ph D in Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.He began his teaching career in the public schools of De Kalb County, Georgia, outside Atlanta, where he taught mathematics in grades 8-12.My Math Lab includes assignable algorithmic exercises, the complete e Book, tutorial and classroom videos, e Manipulatives, tools to personalize learning, and more.In creating the Twelfth Edition, the authors have built upon the strengths of the previous editions by incorporating feedback from users and making extensive improvements to help prepare future teachers for new state standards and the Common Core.The My Math Lab course for this text features all of the following and more: Personalize learning with My Math Lab My Math Lab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results.My Math Lab includes assignable algorithmic exercises, the complete e Book, tutorial and classroom videos, e Manipulatives, tools to personalize learning, and more.
