Sophisticated medical instruments have provided us with a unique glimpse into the learning brain. As educators, we can take the knowledge and apply it to teaching in our classrooms. With the advantage of brain research, we have been able to develop instructional techniques that facilitate the brain's innate learning capacity.

The more teachers know about how the brain learns, the more instructional options they have. Brain-Compatible Activities for Mathematics, Grades K-1 provides ready-to-use, brain-compatible lessons for mathematics instruction. Each step-by-step lesson includes detailed instructions for the teacher, math activities, and all the necessary reproducibles. Correlated with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' standards and Focal Points, this classroom resource shows teachers how to apply the principles discussed in Sousa's bestseller, How the Brain Learns Mathematics.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A handy tool for teachers! The activities are clearly laid out with directions that will allow any teacher to implement academically rigorous math activities with our youngest students. It is wonderful to see a book dedicated to promoting strong number sense activities that are brain compatible. The activities presented in this book are fun and engaging for young students. This alternative method of developing number sense is likely to reach more students by focusing on different strategies that will engage the entire brain." -- Rosamaria Murillo, Principal
"This book gives educators the tools necessary to provide students with effective and enjoyable learning experiences. The author offers detailed yet easily applicable lessons that will benefit both teacher and students. Sousa effectively explains the importance of brain-based learning tasks and their role in the area of mathematics. Although the activities in this book are designed to be used with the brain-compatible lesson plan format, the teacher has the ability to choose the areas that best suit his or her classroom style. This book also connects the NCTM standards to each lesson. For the past 25 years, I have taught both kindergarten and first grade. I found Sousa's book an effective as well as an enjoyable means of putting brain-compatible math into practice!" -- Susan Schipper, First-Grade Teacher
