  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Accessible Algebra: 30 Modules to Promote Algebraic Reasoning, Grades 7-10

    Accessible Algebra is for any teacher who wants to provide a rich and fulfilling experience to students as they develop new ways of thinking about algebra. Each lesson in this book identifies and addresses a focal domain and standard in algebra, then lays out the common misconceptions and challenges students may face as they work to investigate and understand problems. Anne and Steve met with and listened to students in real classrooms as the students explained what problem-solving strategies they were using. The authors focused on questions and problems that led students to a deeper understanding of algebra. They describe these classroom scenarios in each lesson and also suggest ways teachers may assign a problem or activity, include formative assessment strategies and group students.

  5. Construction Materials: STEM Road Map for High School

    What if you could challenge your high school students to gain an understanding of the feats of engineering required to build high-rise buildings - and maybe even improve them? Construction Materials outlines a journey that will steer your students toward authentic problem-solving while grounding them in integrated STEM disciplines. The series is designed to meet the growing need to infuse real-world learning into F-12 classrooms. This book is an interdisciplinary module that uses project-and problem-based learning. It gives students an inside look at the complex technologies and science behind the buildings they may take for granted. They'll examine micro- and macro-properties of construction materials, particularly those of high-rise buildings, through a unit divided into three sections.

  10. Differentiation That Really Works: Maths

    Differentiating requires more than just a simple bag of tricks. The strategies included in this book were chosen based on their ease of implementation and modification. In addition, they all encourage student engagement, provide inherent opportunities for differentiation and are appropriate for Years 6-12. The book provides time-saving tips and strategies from real teacher who teach maths. These teachers not only developed the materials and used them in their own classes, but they also provided useful feedback and comments about the activities. The strategies included in the book are tiered lessons, cubing, graphic organisers, exit cards, learning contracts and choice boards.

  11. 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.
