    Putting Essential Understanding into Practice: Statistics, 9-12

    By Terry Crites and Roy St. Laurent; Terry Crites, Volume Editor; Barbara J. Dougherty, Series Editor, Putting Essential Understanding into Practice Series Learn about the specialized pedagogical content knowledge that you need to teach statistics effectively in grades 9–12. The authors demonstrate how to use this knowledge to address the big ideas and essential understandings that students must develop for success with statistics—not only in their current work, but also in higher-level mathematics and a myriad of real-world contexts.

    Number and Operations, Part 3: Reasoning Algebraically About Operations Facilitators Package

    Reasoning Algebraically about Operations is one of the seven modules in the Developing Mathematical Ideas Series (DMI), a professional development curriculum designed to help teachers think through the major concepts of K–grade 8 mathematics and examine how children develop those ideas. The module consists of a casebook (sold separately) and an 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 generalizations at the heart of the study of operations in the elementary and middle grades. They express these generalizations in common language and in algebraic notation, develop arguments based on representations of the operations, study what it means to prove a generalization, and extend their generalizations and arguments when the domain under consideration expands from whole numbers to integers.

    Algebra: Patterns, Functions, and Change Casebook

    The Patterns, Functions, and Change Casebook was developed as the key resource for participants’ Developing Mathematical Ideas seminar experience. The twenty-nine 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.
