Teaching Mathematics for Social Justice: Conversations with Educators
This collection of original articles is the start of a compelling conversation among some of the leading figures in critical and social justice mathematics, a number of teachers and educators who have been inspired by them and who have inspiring stories of their own to telland any reader interested in the intersection of education and social justice.
Strength in Numbers: Collaborative Learning in Secondary Mathematics
This practical, useful book introduces tested tools and concepts for creating equitable collaborative learning environments that supports all students and develops confidence in their mathematical ability. $29.95
Developing Essential Understanding of Geometry for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 9-12
This book focuses on essential knowledge for teachers about geometry. It is organized around four big ideas, supported by multiple smaller, interconnected ideas--essential understandings.
Developing Essential Understanding of Geometry for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 6-8
This book focuses on essential knowledge for teachers about geometry. It is organized around four big ideas, supported by multiple smaller, interconnected ideasessential understandings. Taking you beyond a simple introduction to geometry, the book will broaden and deepen your mathematical understanding of one of the most challenging topics for studentsand teachers.
Rich and Engaging Mathematical Tasks: Grades 5-9
A valuable resource to any mathematics teacher, this rich collection of mathematical tasks will enliven students’ engagement in mathematical thinking and reasoning and help them succeed in the classroom. $36.95
Smarter Together! Collaboration and Equity in the Elementary Math Classroom
CI is a set of ideas and strategies that address the problems that confound group work, but that create powerful learning for children. This book offers guidance to readers on how to use these strategies and ideas. The authors describe the lessons they learned using group work, explain how complex instruction helps unsuccessful students, and analyze how to design assignments that support group learning—using group-worthy tasks—giving readers examples of good tasks and help in adapting math problems from their own curricula. $38.95
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

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.
Implementing the Common Core State Standards through Mathematical Problem Solving: High School
Connect the process of problem solving with the content of the Common Core. The first of a series, this book will help mathematics educators illuminate a crucial link between problem solving and the Common Core State Standards. $24.95
