This book’s ten chapters provide lessons and activities to give high school students the financial skills they need for such important experiences as making investments, buying insurance, understanding a credit score, and choosing and paying for education after high school. Related mathematical skills include analyzing and representing data, evaluating probabilities, modeling real-life situations, creating functions, and more. The lessons include connections to current math and financial literacy standards, classroom activity sheets, and suggestions for extended learning.

This book delivers thirty-six appealing, real-world situations, arranged in grade-level order, to engage young learners in mathematical tasks that are tied to the Common Core State Standards or other content standards and designed to allow children to participate in the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice.

More]]>The *Building a System of Tens Casebook* was developed as the key resource for participants’ Developing Mathematical Ideas seminar experience. The thirty cases, written by teachers describing real situations and actual student thinking in their classrooms, provide the basis of each session’s investigation of specific mathematical concepts and teaching strategies. Reading and discussing the cases under the guidance of the facilitator actively engages seminar participants in their own learning enterprise.

The 2016 volume of *APME
*approaches modeling—both the modeling of real-life situations with mathematics and the modeling of mathematical concepts—from a wide variety of perspectives. Its 25 chapters include descriptions of research projects, classroom examples, research observations, and proven teaching strategies.

This volume rounds out *More Lessons Learned from Research,
Volume 1 *(2015) by presenting twenty-four more chapters that share ideas for strengthening teaching and learning by applying accessible, relevant insights from research. As in the first volume, all the chapters have been adapted and updated from articles published in NCTM’s *Journal for Research in Mathematics Education *between 2000 and
2010, and the authors have rewritten and revised their work to make it clear, understandable, and useful for classroom mathematics teachers.

Busy secondary mathematics teachers who seek to respond to the needs of their students and the demands of the Common Core State Standards will welcome this book, which offers a variety of practical ideas to implement right away. Explore why literacy is important to all learners and how to develop it through workshop model instruction that motivates learners to take responsibility for honing their mathematical and literacy skills. This highly readable book includes classroom examples, research summaries, sample lesson plans, graphic organizers, rubrics, and questions to ponder.

More]]>This book focuses on the specialized *pedagogical content
knowledge* that you need to teach geometry and measurement effectively in grades 3–5. You’ll find the insight you’ve been seeking into the misconceptions and “concept images” that limit your students’ thinking about shapes and solids in the eighth title in NCTM’s useful and readable Putting Essential Understanding into Practice Series.
