About Teaching Mathematics A K-8 Resource by Marilyn Burns. This Resource book addresses the challenges of teaching mathematics for the 1990's and beyond. This informative book demonstrates why traditional math teaching, based on paper and pencil computation, has little relevance to the way mathematics is learned or actually used in everyday life. ABOUT TEACHING MATHEMATICS presents a case for teaching math through problem solving and includes more than 240 classroom tested activities.
