Product Description

Daniel J. Brahier, Volume Editor and William R. Speer, General Editor

Teaching mathematics is a much broader endeavor than simply helping students to acquire skills and problem-solving strategies. Teachers also strive to develop motivation and positive dispositions toward studying mathematics--aspects that will have long-term effects on everything from students' confidence to do mathematics to their career choices. Each lesson in a mathematics classroom should take into account students' motivation level and dispositions and have as a goal the development of these affective characteristics.

Explore a wide variety of perspectives on motivation and disposition as these concepts relate to mathematics teaching and learning. NCTM's seventy-third yearbook examines such elements as the demographic composition of a school; the role of movies, television, and the Internet; and nontraditional pedagogy as means of promoting and influencing positive student and teacher dispositions. Motivation and disposition can arise from diverse sources, and many factors can magnify--or diminish--both. The presence or lace of curiosity, ambition, parental influence, teacher encouragement, peer pressure, and future goals--these and other elements play central roles. Against these realities, cumbersome rhetoric is less effective than concrete ideas for implementation--this book offers a perspective to the reader that reinforces action.

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.
