Good math teachers have a robust repertoire of strategies to move students’ learning forward. Mathematics Formative Assessment, Vol. 2: 50 More Practice Strategies for Linking Assessment, Instruction, and Learning, a new volume from award-winning author Page Keeley and mathematics expert Cheryl Rose Tobey, helps you improve student outcomes with 50 all-new formative assessment classroom techniques (FACTS) that are embedded throughout a cycle of instruction. Descriptions of how the FACTs promote learning and inform teaching, including illustrative examples, support the inextricable link between instruction and learning.
Useful across disciplines, Keeley and Tobey’s purposeful assessment techniques help math teachers in kindergarten through grade 12—
- promote conceptual understanding;
- link techniques to core ideas and practices;
- modify instruction for diverse learners;
- seamlessly embed formative assessment throughout the stages of instruction; and
- focus on learning targets and feedback.
Mathematics Formative Assessment does not present a one-size fits all approach. Instead, it’s a one-of-a-kind resource that will help you can build a bridge between your students’ initial ideas and correct mathematical thinking.
