IMPACT (Interweaving Mathematics Pedagogy and Content for Teaching) is an exciting new series of texts for teacher education which aims to advance the learning and teaching of mathematics by integrating mathematics content with the broader research and theoretical base of mathematics education.

The book's title suggests a full discussion of the topics that elementary education pre-service teachers would need to know and teach, but this book is very lacking in the topics required for this. I selected this book to review because I teach classes that would use the 4/5(11). The books accompany any geometry unit and are found easily. The following books are available in The Teacher Store: Icky Bug Shapes by Jerry Pallotta This is a fun and silly book to show and teach different shapes. Classroom Tip: This book, as well as the following three books, are all great stories to read aloud about shapes in the world.
