Dave Caleb (Alumni Faculty/Staff) and his colleague Nicole Tripp recently published Developing Number Strategies, an ebook that aims to help both parents and teachers better understand a whole range of mental math strategies. Mathematics is about creativity, making connections and reasoning. Students need to learn how to be flexible in their thinking and to understand that there are many different ways to arrive at a solution rather than just focus on fluency and accuracy and follow strict procedures to find a correct answer to an equation. It was originally a project to support Mathematics learning of Dave’s current school community. Dave and Nicole are excited to share the book with the world as a free resource to help students, educators and parents everywhere with mathematics understanding.
Developing Number Strategies is a multi-touch ebook and can be viewed on iPad or Mac computer using iBooks. This is Dave’s most recent published project in his series of books on utilizing technology/photography to support teaching and learning.
