Challenges Facing Elementary Math Teachers

1Math in Practice is a comprehensive, grade-by-grade professional learning resource designed to fit with any math curriculum you are using. It identifies the big ideas of both math content and math teaching, unpacking key instructional strategies and detailing why those strategies are so powerful.

Rather than providing another sequence of lessons and units to take students from the beginning to the end of the year, Math in Practice focuses on developing deep content knowledge, understanding why certain strategies and approaches are most effective, and rethinking our beliefs about what math teaching should be. 

In this video, Joan Tellish, co-author of Teaching Fifth Grade Math from Math in Practice, explains some of the things that elementary teachers struggle with the most when teaching math, including: understanding the content, finding the time to teach everything, and having access to the right materials to help with comprehension.
