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
The Impact of Identity in K-8 Mathematics: Rethinking Equity-Based Practices
Each teacher and student brings many identities to the classroom. What is their impact on the student’s learning and the teacher’s teaching of mathematics?
This book invites K–8 teachers to reflect on their own and their students’ multiple identities. Rich possibilities for learning result when teachers draw on these identities to offer high-quality, equity-based teaching to all students. Reflecting on identity and re-envisioning learning and teaching through this lens especially benefits students who have been marginalized by race, class, ethnicity, or gender. $36.95
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.
