Product Description

By Elizabeth Phillips, Judith Zawojewski

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
• Generalization
• Problem solving
• Connections in mathematics learning and teaching

First introduced by NCTM, these four key practices are part of the set of Mathematical Practices described by the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. The book is organized into four chapters: Number and Operations, Measurement and Geometry, Data and Chance, and Algebra. The chapters show each problem with a goal statement, a list of needed materials, possible solutions, teacher’s notes and ideas for extensions. Teacher’s notes include the problem’s mathematical goals, key information for implementing the problem, elaboration on students’ possible strategies, and sample questions and answers. The editors identify throughout the book where a problem incorporates one of the CCSSM Mathematical Practices. An appendix includes reproducible blackline masters, which can also be found online and downloaded from NCTM’s MORE4U website page.

This book has More4U, which includes additional resources online. Download activities, classroom materials, and blackline masters. Look inside book for access code.

Please note: This product can only be purchased via NCTM's Online catalog. Non-web payment methods, such as POs, cannot be used to purchase this item. If you have questions, please call NCTM's Customer Service Department at 800-235-7566.
