Although proving is core to mathematics as a sense-making activity, it currently has a marginal place in elementary classrooms internationally. Blending research with practical perspectives, this book examinines what it would take to elevate the place of proving at elementary school.

Andreas Moutsios-Rentzos, Educational Studies in Mathematics ... a coherent approach to proof and proving in the elementary mathematics classroom, including a framework for conceptualising mathematical proof and proving activities, a categorisation of tasks that may be linked with qualitative different opportunities for the students to be engaged in proof and proving, and a discussion about the role of the teacher. Importantly, [the author] orchestrates the theoretical discussion of these topics with a well-structured analysis
of illustrative examples... "Proving in the Elementary Mathematics Classroom", at the very least, opens a fascinating discussion about explicitly communicating and practising that proof is taught and learned within the elementary mathematics classroom.

N. G. Macleod, Mathematics in School [F]or many dedicated primary teachers who want to understand and want their pupils to understand, [the book] is a great start to the concept of proof.

Annie Selden, MAA Reviews Anyone teaching a methods course for preservice elementary teachers would find this book a good source of proving tasks/activities, together with actual children's words and work
