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.
Lessons Learned from Research
The chapters in this book, all research articles from NCTM's Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, have been recast specifically to reach the teacher audience and provide commentary that highlights the value of each. $40.95

Motivation Matters and Interest Counts: Fostering Engagement in Mathematics
Why do smart people disengage from mathematical pursuits… and how can we reverse the trend?
This book is designed to be the go-to source for information on mathematical motivation. It presents the full body of research on motivation in a useful, interesting, and provocative matter.
All students are motivated, and as teachers, we need to understand in what ways they are motivated, and for what purposes. In doing so, we can design or utilize strategies based on solid empirical research to engage students more, and help them learn more as a result.
