"Beginning Algebra: Teaching Key Concepts" (focus 11/13 MT) 
 November 2013 Focus Issue: Beginning Algebra: Teaching Key Concepts
How can all students learn the key concepts of beginning algebra? Through the study of algebra, students learn to think abstractly, apply various representations, communicate mathematically, and develop the habits of mind that are needed to use mathematics and become lifelong learners. Whether taught within a firstyear algebra or an integrated course, algebraic concepts form a core of mathematical knowledge that students need for future success. The Editorial Panel of Mathematics Teacher solicits manuscripts that examine ways to teach the key mathematical concepts students must learn in a beginning algebra course.

Implementing the Common Core State Standards through Mathematical Problem Solving, Grades 68 
 Connect the Process of Problem Solving with the Content of the Common Core Mathematics educators have long worked to help students to develop problemsolving 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.
