Administrator's Guide: Interpreting the Common Core State Standards to Improve Mathematics Education
Nearly a decade ago, NCTM published Administrator's Guide: How to Support and Improve Mathematics Education in Your School. This updated Administrator's Guide now positions school and district leaders to make sense of the past decade's many recommendations, with special emphasis on the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.
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
Common Core Mathematics in a PLC at Work, Grades K-2
How do you help your students demonstrate mathematical proficiency toward the learning expectations of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)?
This teacher guide illustrates how to sustain successful implementation of the CCSS for mathematics for grades K–2. Discover what students should learn and how they should learn it at each grade level, including insight into prekindergarten early childhood readiness expectations for the K–2 standards, as well as the unique Counting and Cardinality standards for kindergarten.

Young Mathematicians at Work: Constructing Algebra
"When children are given the chance to structure number and operation in their own way, they can make sense of algebra not as a funny set of rules that mixes up letters and numbers but as a language for describing the structure and relationships they uncover." -Catherine Twomey Fosnot and Bill Jacob
Developing Essential Understanding of Rational Numbers for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 3-5
Help your upper elementary school student develop a robust understanding of rational numbers. $32.95
Rich and Engaging Mathematical Tasks: Grades 5-9
A valuable resource to any mathematics teacher, this rich collection of mathematical tasks will enliven students’ engagement in mathematical thinking and reasoning and help them succeed in the classroom. $36.95
Developing Essential Understanding of Mathematical Reasoning for Teaching Mathematics in Grades Pre-K-8
This book focuses on essential knowledge for teachers about mathematical reasoning. It is organized around one big idea, supported by multiple smaller, interconnected ideas— essential understandings.Taking you beyond a simple introduction to mathematical reasoning, the book will broaden and deepen your mathematical understanding of one of the most challenging topics for students—and teachers. It will help you engage your students, anticipate their perplexities, avoid pitfalls, and dispel misconceptions. You will also learn to develop appropriate tasks, techniques, and tools for assessing students' understanding of the topic. $32.95
Reasoning and Sense-Making Problems and Activities for Grades 5-8
This book is a collection of the best of NCTM's Addenda series, grades 5-8 and includes problems and examples that represent critical content for today’s middle school curriculum. The problems focus on the four key practices:
• Roles of representation
• Problem solving
• Connections in mathematics learning and teaching
This book has More4U, which includes additional resources online. Download activities, classroom materials, and blackline masters. Look inside book for access code. $37.95
Mathematics in the Early Years
This thought-provoking material shows that although children think
differently from adults and although children construct their own informal
mathematics, they are capable of surprisingly complex forms of mathematical
thinking and learning.
Visible Thinking in the K-8 Mathematics Classroom
Seeing is believing with this interactive approach to math instruction!
Do you ever wish your students could read each other's thoughts? Now they can—and so can you! Veteran mathematics educators Ted Hull, Don Balka, and Ruth Harbin Miles explain why making students' thought processes visible is the key to effective mathematics instruction. Their newest book contains numerous grade-specific sample problems and instructional strategies for teaching essential concepts such as number sense, fractions, and estimation.
