Ways to Think About Mathematics

Full Description: 

Ways to Think About Mathematics uses immersion experiences in algebra, geometry, and statistics to help mathematics teachers improve their knowledge and understanding of mathematical concepts. By experiencing the book’s open-ended problems, making and checking conjectures, and evaluating problem solving strategies, every mathematics teacher can become better prepared to deal with day-to-day classroom decisions. Funded by the National Science Foundation and successfully field-tested in a wide variety of professional development and preservice settings, the materials in this book integrate mathematical thinking, effective teaching practices, and explicit connections to exemplary curricula.
