1. Mathematical Imagining: A Routine for Secondary Classrooms

Mathematical imagining describes an original routine that gives students space and time to imagine a mathematical situation and then revise, discuss and act upon the mental images they create. You can use this creative routine in your secondary classroom to glimpse your students’ thinking and discover teaching opportunities, while empowering them to create their own mathematics.

2. Probability for Kids: Using Model-Eliciting Activities to Investigate Probability Concepts

Probability for Kids features real-world probability scenarios for students in Years 4-6. Students will encounter problems in which they read about students their age selling magazines for a school fund raiser, concerned about their homeroom assignments, and trying to decode the combination to a safe that their grandfather abandoned, among others, all of which maximise learning so students gain a deep understanding of concepts in probability.

3. Rough Draft Math: Revising to Learn

In Rough draft math, Mandy shares the power of infusing mathematics class with the spirit of revision so that students feel comfortable thinking aloud as they talk to learn through problem-solving, rather than talking only to perform right answers. In the process, a class of students becomes a community of mathematical thinkers and teachers gain access into their students’ ideas and understandings. Inside you’ll find the following: an exploration of what the idea of revision could mean for mathematics teaching and learning; classroom vignettes to see rough draft mathematics in action; specific teaching techniques to encourage and practice rough draft thinking; voices of teachers and students in rough draft classrooms; Mandy’s reflections about her own teaching as a work in progress.

4. Transform Your 6-12 Math Class: Digital Age Tools to Spark Learning

Instead of drill-and-practice apps and worksheets, what if technology enabled exploration of mathematics concepts? Instead of screens for disconnected individual learning, what if technology fostered mathematical discourse and collaboration? Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching mathematics, what if we used technology to differentiate to meet students’ diverse needs? Technology has the power to support the teaching and learning of mathematics content at all grade levels, but the presence of technology is insufficient unless it’s paired with effective teaching practices and meaningful content. This book poses and unpacks the above questions and many more, with detailed classroom examples to illustrate practical strategies for integrating technology in the 6-12 classroom.

6. Well Played, 6-8: Building Mathematical Thinking Through Number and Algebraic Games and Puzzles

Students love math games and puzzles, but how much are they really learning from the experience? Too often, math games are thought of as just a fun activity or enrichment opportunity. Learn how to make games and puzzles an integral learning component and gain unique access to student thinking.

7. It’s All Relative: Key Ideas and Common Misconceptions About Ratio and Proportion, Grades 6-7

For years, students have been taught to cross multiply when presented with proportion problems. Few understand what they were doing or why they were doing it. Rarely were students invited to think about various representations to determine the relationship between the two ratios being compared. This guide will help you provide students with the conceptual understanding of ratios and proportional thinking that is essential for solving real-world problems and achieving success in higher-level mathematics. The authors particularly emphasise how to use visual models to represent ratios and proportional thinking. These visual models, which may be new to many teachers, enhance students' conceptual understanding and improve ability to solve a wide range of proportional reasoning problems.

8. Helping Students Become Equation Experts

The award-winning Equation Expert uses a simple and logical visual approach that makes sense to anyone who might be left behind by a traditional means of learning to solve equations. Use the provided Equation Expert template to clarify and solve twenty different kinds of equations, including mathematical and scientific formulas. Helping Students Become Equation Experts includes the Equation Expert template itself, along with a guide for teachers that includes practice problems and assessments for students.

9. Zip-Around Games

Zip-Around card games are an engaging way for the whole class to learn and practise new concepts together. Students will have fun as they cooperate in exciting, fast-paced games that sharpen their skills in maths, build their vocabulary and learn to listen to each other. Titles in this series include: Maths Games: Practise mental multiplication and division, work with fractions and solve worded problems. Vocabulary Games: Introduce synonyms, metaphors, alliteration and homonyms, and  apply effective strategies for learning new words. Following Directions: Encourage active listening (and laughter!) as students sing, stamp their feet and even moo like cows to complete a sequence of tasks together. Each Zip-Around set comes with eight individual games, as well as a booklet containing game instructions, answer keys and additional reproducible resources for introducing and reinforcing each activity.

12. Smart Starters

A Smart Starter changes "extra" moments in a classroom setting into teachable moments. They are designed to take short amounts of time. However, Smart Starters are NOT short on substance. The Smart Starters in this series are packed full of important skills to practise and polish or to reinforce and extend. As their name suggests, they are good for igniting learning. Instead of the slow move into a class period, lesson or school day, a Smart Starter quick-starts the action. Each one warms up the brain with a sparkling challenge. Students also need this kind of spark at times other than the beginning of the day or class period. Use a Smart Starter any time there is a lull, or any time students need a break from a longer activity.
