Product Description

By Sarah Bush, Karen Karp

This highly useful book, authored by leading teacher educators, provides ready-made alignment to high-quality, peer-reviewed, engaging activities reviewed by NCTM members that they can use with their K–12 students.

The book provides a timely resource to preservice and in-service teachers that will help ensure they are using activities that align to the CCSSM content standards and standards for mathematical practice— which they are aiming to successfully address in their classroom. It is assumed that because all articles published by NCTM are already peer-reviewed at the national level, the pedagogy within each article is sound and of exceptionally high quality.

These publications directly align to NCTM’s equity guidelines because many of the articles have connections to teaching practices that respond to students’ different needs and have diversity listed as one of their key words. In addition, numerous articles foster “mathematics for all” and many articles specifically address the learning of students with special needs.

Implementing the Common Core State Standards through Mathematical Problem Solving, Grades 6-8
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 third 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.
Uncomplicating Fractions to Meet Common Core Standards in Math, K-7
This accessible book provides math teachers with support for differentiated instruction. Math coaches can use it to assist teachers with their transition to the Common Core State Standards. All teachers will find it helpful to see the mathematical fraction learning that precedes and follows the grades that they teach. It is also an excellent text for preservice teachers as they prepare themselves and their students to understand and teach math with a deep level of understanding.

Mathematics for Equity: A Framework for Successful Practice
In this book, nationally renowned scholars join classroom teachers to share equity-oriented approaches that have been successful with urban high school mathematics students. Compiling for the first time major research findings and practitioner experiences from Railside High School, the volume describes the evolution of a fundamentally different conception of learners and teaching. The chapters bring together research and reflection on teacher collaboration and professional community, student outcomes and mathematics classroom culture, reform curricula and pedagogy, and ongoing teacher development.

Mathematics for Equity will be invaluable reading for teachers, schools, and districts interested in maintaining a focus on equity and improving student learning while making sense of the new demands of the Common Core State Standards.

Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All
What it will take to turn the opportunity of the Common Core into reality in every classroom, school, and district. $28.95
Math Is a Verb: Activities and Lessons from Cultures Around the World
This book is a guide for teachers who would like to enhance their mathematics instruction by integrating it with examples and activities from cultures throughout the world. It provides culturally situated examples, each linked to Common Core objectives that show how mathematics can be so much more than a story problem or an exercise in a worksheet with little or no context.

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
Lessons Learned from Across the World - Pk-8
Around the World in 18 Math Lessons—An International Perspective on Mathematics

Mathematics—the universal language—is the only language that all people share in the same way, regardless of culture, religion, or gender. Unlike other languages, math does not change according to location. Pi is still approximately 3.14159 no matter where you live, and 2 + 2 always equals four. Yet each culture brings its own unique perspective to teaching mathematics,providing teachers with fresh approaches to use with students.
