1. Which One Doesn't Belong? A Shapes Book (Set of 5) and Teacher's Guide (Teacher's Bundle)

This Teacher's Bundle contains five copies of Which One Doesn't Belong? A Shapes Book (Student Book) and one copy of Which One Doesn't Belong? A Shapes Book (Teacher's Guide). Every colourful page of the Student Book contains a thoughtfully designed set of four shapes. Each of the shapes can be a correct answer to the question "Which one doesn't belong?" Because all their answers are right answers, students naturally shift their focus to justifications and arguments based on the shapes' geometric properties. In the companion Teacher's Guide, Christopher draws from both research and classroom experience to teach you how students' geometric thinking develops.

6. Beyond the Bubble, Years 4-5: How to Use Multiple-Choice Tests to Improve Maths Instruction

Multiple-choice testing is an educational reality. Rather than complain about the negative impact these tests may have on teaching and learning, why not use them to better understand your students' true mathematical knowledge and comprehension? Maryann Wickett and Eunice Hendrix-Martin show teachers how to move beyond the student's answer - right or wrong - to uncover understanding and/or misconceptions. By asking a few simple follow-up questions, teachers can learn a great deal about student understanding and make better, more informed instructional decisions. Learn More

7. Intentional Talk: How to Structure and Lead Productive Mathematical Discussions

Intentional Talk provides teachers with a framework for planning and facilitating purposeful mathematical discussions that enrich and deepen student learning. According to Kazemi and Hintz, the critical first step is to identify a discussion's goal and then understand how to structure and facilitate the conversation to meet that goal. Through detailed vignettes from primary school classrooms, the authors provide a window into what teachers are thinking as they lead discussions and make important pedagogical and mathematical decisions along the way. The authors examine students' roles as both listeners and talkers and offer a number of strategies for improving student participation and learning.

8. Curriculum Sense: Tapping the Power of the Mathematical Practices

While based on the American Common Core State Standards, the Standards for Mathematical Practice outlined in this book provide an excellent foundation for encouraging students to think, reason and persevere like mathematicians regardless of curriculum. Christine Moynihan wrote Curriculum Sense: Tapping the Power of the Mathematical Practices with the goal of making the practices more explicit, learnable and accessible. Christine shows what each practice might look, sound and feel like in the classroom using the simple, four-part GOLD framework. As teachers implement the Australian Curriculum in their mathematics classrooms, the important information and processes involved in the Mathematical Practices are invaluable guides for establishing and expanding on core mathematics skills.

9. The ABC's of Math Differentiation: 3-Tiered Instruction Breaking the Mold

In every class, three ability groups make themselves present: below-, on- and above-year level. We know we need to differentiate our lessons to reach each student in our diverse group of learners. And we know that requires that we break the mould of notes, lecture, practice, repeat. This resource is aligned with the Common Core Maths Standards/Practices for Years 4-8, with the letters A, B and C indicating the different levels of learners that exist in our classrooms. If you are a teacher implementing Guided Maths, these activities are already differentiated for you to use with each of your different ability groups.

10. Proficiency Scales for English and Mathematics Standards

Because the generic form of a proficiency scale is comparable across teachers, topics, subject areas and year levels, it allows teachers to compile summative scores for specific topics and increases the reliability of test design and scoring. Whether you are actively engaged in implementing a Marzano Institute initiative in your school or simply need guidance when it comes to measuring student learning, this book can help. Designed to supplement your existing practice, it contains over 110 proficiency scales that will bring new rigour and focus to your teaching and assessment practice, as well as aid in creating unique proficiency scales for the Australian Curriculum.

11. Mesmerizing Math Puzzles

You need this book! The puzzles in this book are designed to be easily integrated into any curriculum. The puzzles were created to facilitate the connection of mathematical practices to mathematical content in mathematics instruction. Gifted primary students master content more quickly and more effectively when it is embedded within exercises requiring reasoning. Puzzles provide the perfect format in which this mastery can take place. Each of the puzzles in this book provides practice in content standards. Warning - These puzzles are tough! They will challenge even the most mathematically gifted Year 4 to Year 8 students. But then, that kind of challenge is just what these students want and need.
