Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book offers deep insights into what algebra is and how it can be developed from the very youngest grades. Detailed classroom descriptions offer both useful tasks and excellent teaching strategies. True to its title, it aims to develop "young mathematicians" who engage in developing, testing, and proving their own mathematical ideas. I particularly appreciated the attention the authors paid to bridging individual and collective understanding. By the end of the book, Grade 5 students are solving systems of equations!
