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.

Copublished with Corwin Are you able to support your struggling students while also challenging your high achievers? Research clearly shows the value of using formative assessment to differentiate mathematics instruction, but putting it into practice can be daunting. This book makes it much easier! Staff development expert and former math teacher Leslie Laud provides a clear roadmap for using formative assessment to differentiate mathematics instruction for students in Grades 4-10, using strategies ideal for a Response to Intervention (RTI) model.
Using Classroom Assessment to Improve Student Learning: Math Problems Aligned with NCTM and Common Core State Standards
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.
A Guide to Mathematics Coaching: Processes for Increasing Student Achievement
