  1. Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching to Inform Instructional Quality

    In Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching to Inform Instructional Quality, Melissa D. Boston, Amber G. Candela and Juli K. Dixon provide a compelling process for focusing on and improving the quality of F-12 teachers' mathematics instruction. The authors present a set of rubrics - the Instructional Quality Assessment (IQA) Mathematics Toolkit - as a framework to focus reflections, conversations, feedback, and the planning and teaching of mathematics. In line with the Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching series, the tasks, questions and evidence (TQE) process guides readers in improving the quality of their instruction and building their own understanding of and skill with mathematics.

  2. STEM-Rich Maker Learning: Designing Equity with Youth of Color

    In recent years, maker-centred learning has emerged in schools and other spaces as a promising new phase of STEM education reform. With a sharp focus on equity, the authors investigate community-based STEM-making programs to determine whether, and how, they can address the educational needs of youth of colour. The authors explore what it means for youth to engage in making with the explicit goal of addressing injustices in their lives. The text features longitudinal ethnographic data and compelling examples that show how youth of colour from low-income backgrounds innovate and make usable artefacts to improve their lives and their communities. This book is essential reading for STEM educators in both formal and informal educational settings.

  3. The New Art and Science of Teaching Mathematics, Revised Edition

    In The New Art and Science of Teaching Mathematics, authors Nathan D. Lang-Raad and Robert J. Marzano explore how teachers can apply The New Art and Science of Teaching framework to teaching mathematics. This comprehensive book offers over one hundred detailed strategies for and examples of implementation. Throughout the book, the authors address the following design areas within three categories of teaching: (1) feedback, (2) content and (3) context. Each chapter includes self-rating scales teachers can use to assess their performance and determine areas of strength and improvement. Each chapter ends with guiding questions for curriculum design. This book will help all teachers address the learning outcomes for mathematics necessary for student success.

  5. Building a K–12 STEM Lab: A Step-by-Step Guide for School Leaders and Tech Coaches

    Few resources are available for district and school leaders looking to establish successful STEM labs. Frequently, efforts don’t gain traction because they lack a systemic approach and support from a broad spectrum of stakeholders within the school community. Building a K-12 STEM Lab addresses this challenge from the perspective of the leader, identifying opportunities for capacity building and ensuring equal access and equity for all students. The comprehensive and flexible approach outlined in this book will help school and district leaders develop productive community partnerships in support of STEM education within the STEM lab and throughout the school.

  6. Number Sense Routines: Building Mathematical Understanding Every Day in Grades 3-5

    Number Sense Routines: Developing Mathematical Understanding Every Day in Grades 3-5 is about tapping into every child’s sense of number and providing daily, connected experiences that are responsive to children's learning needs. Through familiar five-, ten- or fifteen-minute warm-up routines, Jessica Shumway offers both beginner and veteran teachers easy and effective ways to build and solidify students' number sense foundations. Not only will these routines help develop students' mathematical understanding as they move towards using standard algorithm, but they will also help teachers learn to better recognise the big ideas that emerge in discussions, how to encourage important strategies based in number sense and how to facilitate discussions on key mathematical concepts.

  8. Small Steps, Big Changes: Eight Essential Practices for Transforming Schools Through Mathematics

    During the past two decades, Chris Confer and Marco Ramirez have worked to deepen and improve mathematics instruction at school around the US. Wherever they go, they find the raw ingredients for success already present. In Small Steps, Big Changes: Eight Essential Practices for Transforming Schools Through Mathematics, the authors identify eight tested principles that transform what can be an overwhelming process into a set of comprehensible and concrete steps. Each phase of the change process is brought to life through the stories and perspectives of teachers, coaches and principals - stories that will strike familiar chords for every educator. When teachers make sense of maths, students learn to make sense of maths, and that can profoundly change the entire culture of a school.

  9. Moving Math: How to Use Thinking Skills to Help Students Make Sense of Mathematical Concepts and Support Numeracy Development

    Moving Math presents an opportunity for you, as an educator, to think differently about mathematics and help students use thinking skills to make sense of mathematics. Based on the premise that real learning involves a shift in thinking and doing, this practical book shows you how to create classroom conditions where students are eager to learn and grow. Cross-curricular thinking skills, inferring and interpreting, analysing, evaluating, making connections, synthesising, reasoning and proving, and reflecting, are deconstructed and modelled through suggested learning experiences across various year levels. The book describes how thinking skills can lead students to make better sense of mathematical concepts that support numeracy.

  11. STEM Education Now More Than Ever

    Rodger W. Bybee's 2012 book The Case for STEM Education was a call to confront pressing challenges and opportunities in science classrooms. This new book is a call to action at a time when the integrity of STEM disciplines is under assault. Now more than ever, he writes, society needs to recognise the place of STEM education in the cultural, political and ethical life of students as future citizens. But to make this possible, science educators must address important questions that will guide the development of their programs and practices throughout the 21st century. STEM Education Now More Than Ever is Bybee's positive and constructive response for the STEM education community as it navigates these unconventional and uncertain years.
