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.
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
