    Number and Operations, Part 1: Building A System of Tens Facilitators Package

    Deborah Schifter, Virginia Bastable, and Susan Jo Russell Building a System of Tens, the first module in the seven-part Developing Mathematical Ideas Series, 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 and classroom videos. Under the guidance of the facilitator, participants explore the base-ten number structure, consider how that structure is exploited in multidigit computational procedures, and examine how basic concepts of whole numbers reappear when working with decimals.

    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.

    Reasoning and Sense Making in the Mathematics Classroom: Pre-K-Grade 2

    Based on extensive research, Reasoning and Sense Making in the Mathematics Classroom, Pre-K–Grade 2, is designed to help classroom teachers understand, monitor, and guide the development of students’ reasoning and sense making about core ideas in elementary school mathematics. Vignettes and student work as well as instructional tasks and learning progressions illustrate how students develop reasoning and sense making and how instruction can support them in that development. This book focuses on number and operations, algebraic thinking, and decomposing/composing geometric shapes.

NCTM does not accept returns on digital content purchases. All purchases are final. Making Meaning for Operations is the second module in the seven-part 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 think through the meaning of each of the four operations on whole numbers, how they are related to each other, what kinds of situations they model, how each can be represented, and how these meanings must be extended and deepened to accommodate fractions.

    Number and Operations, Part 2: Making Meaning for Operations Casebook

    The Making Meaning for Operations 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.
