Mathematics teachers face many challenges in today's classrooms, including issues such as higher standards, differentiation, real-world applications, non-routine problem solving, and more.
In Styles and Strategies for Teaching Middle School Mathematics, mathematics educators Edward J. Thomas and John R. Brunsting answer two crucial questions:
- Which research-based strategies are most effective for delivering math instruction?
- How can mathematics teachers address the various needs of their students and still meet today's demanding standards?
Presenting research-based, classroom-tested instructional strategies, a sensible plan for differentiation based on learning-styles, and numerous sample lessons, the authors show you how to effectively reach and teach today's learners.
