Putting Essential Understanding of Fractions into Practice in Grades 3-5
What tasks can you offerwhat questions can you askto determine what your students know or don’t knowand move them forward in their thinking?
This book focuses on the specialized pedagogical content knowledge that you need to teach fractions effectively in grades 3–5. The authors demonstrate how to use this multifaceted knowledge to address the big ideas and essential understandings that students must develop for success with fractionsnot only in their current work, but also in higher-level mathematics and a myriad of real-world contexts.
Cartoon Corner 2
What's so funny about math? Humor-based activities as an effective way to teach mathematics.
Each of the cartoons has a mathematical dimension, and the cartoons and activities developed around them are field-tested by middle school teachers before publication. Following on the format of the first edition, this book provides even more classroom problems and field-test comments.
Implementing the Common Core State Standards through Mathematical Problem Solving: Kindergarten-Grade 2
Connect the Process of Problem Solving with the Content of the Common Core Mathematics educators have long worked to help students to develop problem-solving skills. More recently, they have sought to provide students with the knowledge in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This volume is the second in a series from NCTM that equips classroom teachers with targeted, highly effective problems for achieving both goals at once. For every mathematics educator, the books in this series will illuminate a crucial link between problem solving and the Common Core State Standards.
Connecting the NCTM Process Standards and the CCSSM Practices
Connecting the Standards, Improving Mathematical Instruction
By connecting the CCSSM to previous standards and practices, the book serves as a valuable guide for teachers and administrators in implementing the CCSSM to make mathematics education the best and most effective for all students.
