Embrace the diverse spectrum of abilities, interests, and learning styles among students with this powerful series. Each book offers practical, research-based guidance to differentiating instruction in the mathematics classroom. The authors provide: dozens of ready-to-use differentiated tasks (including reproducibles), along with ways to scaffold mathematical learning; strategies for providing and structuring choice within classrooms; guidance in leading large-group discussions when students are completing different activities; and engaging ways to address NCTM's Principles and Standards for School Mathematics and Curriculum Focal Points.
If you've ever taken a graduate statistics course and discovered that you've forgotten how to divide a fraction or turn a fraction into a percentage, then this handy guide to mathematics is for you. Each topic is provided with a definition, explanation, and examples of how to solve a particular problem using the topic's technique. With ample cross-referencing, this guide is the perfect reference for researchers working with numbers, who need a review of mathematical concepts.
From Quack and Count to Harry Potter, the imaginative ideas in children’s books come to life in math lessons through this unique series. Each resource provides more than 20 classroom-tested lessons that engage children in mathematical problem solving and reasoning. Each lesson features an overview, materials required, and a vignette of how the lesson actually unfolded in a classroom. This book includes a reference chart indicating the mathematical concept each lesson covers, such as number, geometry, patterns, algebra, measurement, data analysis, or probability. Topics include counting, sorting, addition, subtraction, money, measurement, and patterns.
Provides opportunities for engaging, differentiated, open-ended problem-solving experiences. Features more than two hundred tasks grouped by content standards that reflect the NCTM Standards and the NCTM Curriculum Focal Points.
"Presents practices and routines designed to support and nourish teachers as they prepare and present a meaningful year of mathematics instruction for fifth-grade mathematicians. Offers activities, lessons, and narration that can be easily adapted or adjusted to fit the particular needs of the students or the requirements of a prescribed curriculum"--
This book of worked-out examples not only accompanies Timothy M. Hagle's earlier book Basic Math for Social Scientists: Concepts, but also provides an informal refresher course in algebra sets, limits and continuity, differential calculus, multivariate functions, partial derivatives, integral calculus, and matrix algebra. Problem sets are also provided so that readers can practice their grasp of standard mathematical procedures.
