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.

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 goto 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.

Disrupting Tradition: Research and Practice Pathways in Mathematics Education 
 What happens when you form partnerships among researchers and mathematics education professionals?
This book offers insights into, and examples of, the role that research plays in supporting and improving school mathematics while raising valuable questions for the education community. What forms have research and practice activities taken? What lessons have been learned from collaborations? This volume examines both of these questions to illustrate where strategic partnerships have linked research findings to the design of practice and programmatic endeavors, and to generate evidence to guide both educational decision making and routine modifications related to school mathematics.  $31.95

Developing Essential Understanding of Algebraic Thinking for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 35 
 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
