This book examines issues related to access, equity, and empowerment in middle school mathematics classrooms, focusing on diversity as a resource and addressing three critical and intertwined factors: teaching practices that build on students’ strengths of students; rigorous content that draws on students’ experiences; and fostering relationships with diverse students. Many chapters were written in collaboration between researchers and practitioners.

Measuring Space in One, Two, and Three Dimensions (MS 123) is one of the seven modules in the Developing Mathematical Ideas Series. It consists of a casebook (sold separately) and this online facilitator’s package that contains everything necessary to prepare for and lead the seminar, including access to the casebook content and classroom videos. Under the guidance of the facilitator, participants examine different attributes of size, develop facility in composing and decomposing shapes, and apply these skills to make sense of formulas for area and volume. They also think through the conceptual issues of length, area, and volume and their complex interrelationships.

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.

Based on extensive research, Reasoning and Sense Making in the Mathematics Classroom, Grades 6-8, is designed to help classroom teachers understand, monitor, and guide the development of students’ reasoning and sense making about core ideas in middle school mathematics. This book shows—through student work and classroom vignettes as well as instructional tasks—how instruction can support students in their development of reasoning and sense making. Fractions, algebraic reasoning, statistics and probability, and decomposing/composing geometric shapes are the specific content areas that this book targets.
