    Product Description

    By Timothy D. Kanold and Matthew R. Larson

    Copublished with Solution Tree

    This book is intended for all who are involved in K–12 mathematics education—particularly, educators and parents—and who seek to improve their own understanding of mathematics teaching and learning to help students succeed. The authors tackle popular misconceptions and misguided discourse about mathematics education and draw on peer-reviewed research about instruction that can significantly improve student learning.

    The authors take readers through an array of interrelated topics, guiding them as they—

    • explore reasons why expectations for mathematics teaching and learning must be raised;
    • study the history of the progression, changes, and disputes in K–12 mathematics education;
    • discover insights about mathematics education in an era of mathematics reform;
    • define mathematical literacy and what elements are part of effective mathematics instruction;
    • learn the steps that those who play a part in mathematics education must take to support the teaching and learning of mathematics to ensure that all students are college and career ready.
