- Math for Real Life: Teaching Practical Uses for Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry (in print and online) byWritten primarily for teachers, this book presents hundreds of practical applications for mathematics--from baseball statistics to the theory of relativity--that can be understood by anyone with a knowledge of high school algebra, geometry and trigonometry.
- Teaching Mathematics Using Popular Culture (in print and online) byOrganized on the subject strands of the Common Core, this book explores math concepts featured in contemporary films and television shows and offers numerous examples high school math teachers can use to design lessons using pop culture references.
- Yes, but Why? Teaching for Understanding in Mathematics byGetting the right answers in math is only half the problem. Understanding why what you're doing works is the part that often stumps students and teachers alike. A must-read for those training to teach primary or secondary mathematics.
- The Fear of Maths: How to Overcome It byThe Fear of Maths: How to Overcome It is for parents and teachers looking for a way to encourage and help their children. It is based on teaching maths as a set of principles (rather than a series of facts to be memorised) to be understood, and how they can be used in various situations, to make numbers seem less threatening and, perhaps for the first time, to begin to make sense.

- 100 Commonly Asked Questions in Math Class byEven if you already have the answers, these explanations are certain to keep kids hooked--and that's what it's all about. The questions are all organized around the Common Core's math content standards and relate directly to Numbers and Quantity, Functions, Algebra, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability.
- 180 Days of Problem Solving for Sixth Grade (Grade 6) byThis easy-to-use sixth grade workbook is great for at-home learning or in the classroom. The engaging standards-based activities cover grade-level skills with easy-to-follow instructions and an answer key to quickly assess student understanding.
- Clothesline Math: The Master Number Sense Maker byThis must-have resource provides the theoretical groundwork for teaching number sense. Authored by Chris Shore, this book empowers teachers with the pedagogy, lessons, and detailed instructions to help them implement Clothesline Math in K-12 classrooms.
- Common Core Standards for Middle School Mathematics byPublication Date: 2013Here, middle school mathematics teachers and teacher leaders will find information they need to begin adapting their practices to ensure that all students master the challenging material present in the standards. A practical lesson planning process to use with the Common Core, based on Classroom Instruction That Works, 2nd Ed., is included, along with three sample lessons.
- A Creative Approach to Teaching Calculation byThe material is addressed to teachers and takes into account recent developments in teaching and the new Primary curriculum. It is based on practical classroom activities, with clear and concise explanations of the power of different calculation methods and images.
- Developing Mathematical Thinking: A Guide to Rethinking the Mathematics Classroom byThe goal of this book is to begin to change the way students experience mathematics in the middle and high school classrooms. In this book you will find a theoretical basis for this approach to teaching mathematics, multiple guides and questions for teachers to think about in relation to their everyday teaching, and over 30 examples of problems, lessons, tasks, and projects that been used effectively with urban students.
- Mathematical Thinking: How to Develop It in the Classroom byThis book is the result of lesson studies over the past 50 years. It describes three perspectives of mathematical thinking: Mathematical Attitude (Minds set), Mathematical Methods in General and Mathematical Ideas with Content and explains how to develop them in the classroom with illuminating examples.
- Math for Real Life: Teaching Practical Uses for Algebra, Geometry and Trigonometry (in print and online) byWritten primarily for teachers, this book presents hundreds of practical applications for mathematics--from baseball statistics to the theory of relativity--that can be understood by anyone with a knowledge of high school algebra, geometry and trigonometry.
- Resources for Preparing Middle School Mathematics Teachers byMiddle school mathematics teachers occupy a unique place in the mathematical development of students. These teachers need to be proficient in all elementary mathematics topics, together with some secondary mathematics topics. They demand a special kind of preparation that differs from both that of their elementary and secondary colleagues.
- Teaching Mathematics Using Popular Culture (in print and online) byOrganized on the subject strands of the Common Core, this book explores math concepts featured in contemporary films and television shows and offers numerous examples high school math teachers can use to design lessons using pop culture references.
