Young Mathematicians at Work: Constructing Multiplication and Division focuses on children in grades 3–5 as they construct deep understandings of multiplication and division. Catherine Twomey Fosnot and Maarten Dolk focus on the development of big ideas and define mathematics as "mathematizing"— structuring, modeling, and interpreting the world mathematically. They show how rich contexts promote inquiry, problem solving, and construction, that let children pursue mathematical ideas.
