ab: Publisher’s description: The math teacher’s go-to resource ‒ now
updated for the common core! What works in math and why has never been
the issue; the research is all out there. Where teachers struggle is
the “how" ‒ something the research rarely manages to tackle.
That’s the big service the book provides. It’s a powerful portal to
what the best research looks like in practice, strategy by strategy ‒
aligned in this new edition to both the common core and the NCTM
standards. How exactly does the book work? It couldn’t be easier to
navigate. The book’s eleven chapters organize clusters of strategies
around a single aspect of a typical instructional program. For each of
the 80 strategies, the authors present: ‒ a brief description of
that strategy, ‒ a summary of supporting research, ‒ the NCTM and
common core standards it meets ‒ and how, ‒ classroom
applications, with examples, ‒ precautions and possible pitfalls,
and ‒ primary sources for further reading and research. Whether
you’re a newly minted math teacher or veteran looking to fine-tune
your teaching, this book is your best resource for successful
standards-based instruction. For the first edition see [ME
