  2. Making Math Stick: Classroom Strategies That Support the Long-term Understanding of Math Concepts

    Making math stick shows teachers how to foster classroom learning experiences that will help students to better understand, retain and apply key maths concepts. The book explores why we need a different approach to teaching maths – one that leads students to a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts that will stick with them long after the test is handed in.

  3. 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.

  4. Hands Down, Speak Out: Listening and Talking Across Literacy and Math, K–5

    Math coach Kassia Omohundro Wedekind and literacy coach Christy Hermann Thompson have spent years comparing notes on how to build effective classroom communities across the content areas. How, they wondered, can we lay the groundwork for classroom conversations that are less teacher-directed and more conducive to student-to-student dialogue? Their answers start with Hands-Down Conversations, an innovative discourse structure in which students’ ideas and voices take the lead while teachers focus on listening and facilitating.

  5. Early Childhood Math Routines: Empowering Young Minds to Think

    One of the central challenges facing early childhood teachers is how to meet academic standards while creating learning environments that honour young children’s mathematical ideas, curiosity and playfulness. In Early childhood math routines, Toni Cameron introduces us to a set of short whole-group and partner routines designed to engage young children in meaningful math thinking and build problem-solving communities. Toni reimagines traditional math routines and introduces brand new routines that focus on the important mathematical ideas of early childhood. Through stories, classroom examples and resources, Toni offers you the tools to get started right away with these routines to help you connect children to mathematics in a way that is exciting and powerful.

  6. Mathematics Unit Planning in a PLC at Work®, Grades 3–5

    Mathematics unit planning in a PLC at Work®, Grades 3-5 provides third- to fifth-grade mathematics teachers with a seven-step framework for collectively planning units of study. The authors help teams identify what students need to know by the end of each unit and how teachers can build student self-efficacy. They advocate using the Professional Learning Community at Work (PLC) process to increase mathematics achievement and give students more equitable learning experiences. They share tools and protocols for effectively performing collaborative tasks, such as unwrapping standards, generating unit calendars, determining academic vocabulary and rigorous lessons, utilising and sharing self-reflections and designing robust fraction units.

  7. Coding + Math: Strengthen K–5 Math Skills With Computer Science

    How-to books related to computer science (CS) and teaching CS in K-12 environments are often either step-by-step guides or reference books, with little or no connection to pedagogy. By contract, Coding + math offers the analytical foundation teachers need to inform their practice, specifically in mathematics. This book will serve as a deep dive into CS integration for elementary teachers, providing guidelines for designing integrated CS/mathematics curricula through case studies and practical examples. Grounded in research, the book’s mini-lessons contrast visual-based coding with text-based programming and provide guidance in the selection and creation of lessons, instructional materials and CS platforms to help educators prepare students for the careers of the future.

  8. Creating Engineering Design Challenges: Success Stories From Teachers

    If you’ve ever wished for advice you can trust on how to make science and math more relevant to your middle or high school students, Creating engineering design challenges is the book for you. At its core are thirteen units grounded in challenge-based learning and the engineering design process. You can be sure the units are classroom-ready because they were contributed by teachers who developed, used and revised them during the Cincinnati engineering enhanced math and science (CEEMS) program, a project funded by the National Science Foundation. The contributors’ goal is to help you benefit from their hard-won experience. Working from their advice, you can develop a more student-centred classroom culture and nurture learners who are engaged in real-life engineering challenges.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
