Mathematics for Equity: A Framework for Successful Practice
In this book, nationally renowned scholars join classroom teachers to share equity-oriented approaches that have been successful with urban high school mathematics students. Compiling for the first time major research findings and practitioner experiences from Railside High School, the volume describes the evolution of a fundamentally different conception of learners and teaching. The chapters bring together research and reflection on teacher collaboration and professional community, student outcomes and mathematics classroom culture, reform curricula and pedagogy, and ongoing teacher development.
Mathematics for Equity will be invaluable reading for teachers, schools, and districts interested in maintaining a focus on equity and improving student learning while making sense of the new demands of the Common Core State Standards.

Math Meets Art Poster
MATH meets ART
At first glance, James Yamada’s Our Starry Night, is a black, 12-foot-tall sculpture with 1900 unlit colored LED lights on its two flat surfaces. As one passes through the sculpture’s rectangular passageway, however, patterns of light appear triggered by a metal detector hidden inside the structure’s casing. STARRY NIGHT
Have your students seeing stars as they explore combinatorics, ellipses, matrices, and parametric equations stemming from this investigation of a publicly displayed sculpture featuring geometric star shapes. (Solutions provided.)

Lessons Learned from Across the World - Pk-8
Around the World in 18 Math Lessons—An International Perspective on Mathematics
Mathematics—the universal language—is the only language that all people share in the same way, regardless of culture, religion, or gender. Unlike other languages, math does not change according to location. Pi is still approximately 3.14159 no matter where you live, and 2 + 2 always equals four. Yet each culture brings its own unique perspective to teaching mathematics,providing teachers with fresh approaches to use with students.
A Mathematical High Point - Poster
a MATHEMATICAL HIGH point
has 101 floors above ground and five floors below. It was the first building in the world to be taller than half a kilometer and, from 2004 to 2010, it was the tallest building in the world. Taipei 101 set several records, including having the world’s fastest elevator.
Using the building statistics given on the poster, challenge your students to calculate how far they can see from the top; how long it would take for the elevator to go from the ground floor to the 89th floor; or find the angle of depression from a particular spot on the roof. (Solutions provided)
