Developing Essential Understanding of Ratios, Proportions, and Proportional Reasoning for Teaching Mathematics: Grades 6-8
Move beyond the mathematics you expect your students to learn. $32.95
Developing Essential Understanding of Algebraic Thinking for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 3-5
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
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.
Developing Essential Understanding of Expressions, Equations, and Functions for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 6-8
This book focuses on essential knowledge for teachers about expressions, equations, and functions. It is organized around five big ideas, supported by multiple smaller, interconnected ideas— essential understandings.Taking you beyond a simple introduction to expressions, equations, and functions, the book will broaden and deepen your mathematical understanding of one of the most challenging topics for students—and teachers. It will help you engage your students, anticipate their perplexities, avoid pitfalls, and dispel misconceptions. You will also learn to develop appropriate tasks, techniques, and tools for assessing students' understanding of the topic. $36.95
Developing Essential Understanding of Multiplication and Division for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 3-5
Move beyond the mathematics you expect your students to learn.
"Unpacking" the ideas related to multiplication and division is a critical step in developing a deeper understanding. To those without specialized training, may of these ideas might appear to be easy to teach. But those who teach in grades 3-5 are aware of their subtleties and complexities. $32.95

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.
Using Formative Assessment to Differentiate Mathematics Instruction: Seven Practices to Maximize Learning
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.
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.
Developing Essential Understanding of Functions for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 9-12
Help your high school students develop a robust understanding of functions. $35.95
