How Students learn uses the principles and findings from How People Learn within the context of the mathematics classroom. An introduction to the principles as they apply to mathematics is included in chapter 2, whole numbers at the elementary level is the focus of chapter 3, rational numbers at the middle level is the focus of chapter 4 and chapter 5 focuses on functions at the high school level. This would be an additional reference to sections II, III and IV.
