To truncate a search term, enter a minimum of the first three letters followed by a question mark (?) or an asterisk (*).
Example:child* or infant*
Use parentheses to create more precise searches.
Example:(games or toys) and (child* or infant*)

If you are on a satellite campus or taking classes online, you have the same access to library resources as students on the Alva campus. That includes books in our print collection, which we can deliver by mail or courier. See the Interlibrary Loan page for details:
Covering the key principles and concepts in the teaching and learning of mathematics in primary schools, this text provides trainee and practising teachers with a quick and easy reference to what they need to know for their course, and in the classroom.
Is there a way to get students to love math? Dr. Judy Willis responds with an emphatic yes in this informative guide to getting better results in math class. Tapping into abundant research on how the brain works, Willis presents a practical approach for how we can improve academic results by demonstrating certain behaviors and teaching students in a way that minimizes negativity.
This developmentally sound, research-based, practical text speaks directly to preservice elementary mathematics students about the multitude of ways they can help their future students learn to see the power, beauty, necessity, and usefulness of mathematics in the world.
