Product Description

By Anne Collins

Linking assessment to everday classroom instruction requires a shift in both thinking and practice. For many, the term assessment simply means grade. Using Classroom Assessment to Improve Student Learning shows how teachers can move away from using tests, letter or numerical grades, or passing or failing as evidence of student learning to creating a rich classroom environment that is conducive to effective formative assessment.

"This book is one that all middle school math teachers have been waiting for. Formative assessment seems to be catching on in elementary grades—and now it can happen in middle school and high school classrooms. You might ask, What is formative assessment? How does it work in a secondary math classroom? What problems or tasks can get me started? This easy-to-read book answers all these questions and more. Teachers will especially love using the book’s embedded tasks for formative assessment. Using Classroom Assessment to Improve Student Learning is a handbook that every math teacher must have."

"Formative assessment is the hottest thing in education, but really understanding how to use assessment strategies to improve student learning goes far beyond that label. This wonderful book gives help at many levels, starting with a look at how instruction, assessment, and student learning interact in an effective classroom. Using Classroom Assessment to Improve Student Learning walks us through classroom strategies that blend these crucial elements and offers real examples that show what it might look like in practice with middle school students. It’s a great resource for anyone who wants to find out what students know in order to help them know more."

Developing Essential Understanding of Algebraic Thinking for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 3-5
Like algebra at any level, early algebra is a way to explore, analyze, represent, and generalize mathematical ideas and relationships. This book shows that children can and do engage in generalizing about numbers and operations as their mathematical experiences expand. The authors identify and examine five big ideas and associated essential understandings for developing algebraic thinking in grades 3–5.$32.95
Motivation Matters and Interest Counts: Fostering Engagement in Mathematics
Why do smart people disengage from mathematical pursuits… and how can we reverse the trend?

This book is designed to be the go-to source for information on mathematical motivation. It presents the full body of research on motivation in a useful, interesting, and provocative matter.

All students are motivated, and as teachers, we need to understand in what ways they are motivated, and for what purposes. In doing so, we can design or utilize strategies based on solid empirical research to engage students more, and help them learn more as a result.

Developing Essential Understanding of Multiplication and Division for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 3-5
Move beyond the mathematics you expect your students to learn.

"Unpacking" the ideas related to multiplication and division is a critical step in developing a deeper understanding. To those without specialized training, may of these ideas might appear to be easy to teach. But those who teach in grades 3-5 are aware of their subtleties and complexities.

Achieving Fluency: Special Education and Mathematics
"Is it a learning disability or a teaching disability?"

Achieving Fluency presents the understandings that all teachers need to play a role in the education of students who struggle: those with disabilities and those who simply lack essential foundational knowledge. This book serves teachers and supervisors by sharing increasingly intensive instructional interventions for struggling students on essential topics aligned with NCTM's Curriculum Focal Points, the new Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, and the practices and processes that overlap the content. These approaches are useful for both overcoming ineffective approaches and implementing preventive approaches.
