Now Online: Math Sense

September 26th, 2012

Although good mathematics teaching cannot be reduced to identifying key elements and checking them off a list, there are essentials that can and should be seen, heard, and felt. What are they? And how can you foster these elements in elementary classrooms?

In her new book, Math Sense, Christine Moynihan helps you look at, listen to, and feel what’s happening in your mathematics instruction, identify what you’re already doing well, and select a few elements for deeper focus.

New and veteran teachers alike will find ideas for physical classroom spaces, key components of an effective math lesson, and how to support discourse and engage students. The concluding chapter offers ways to get started as you move forward to improve your teaching, including a series of self-assessments.

Filled with photos and practical examples, Math Sense is a concise snapshot of best practices in today’s elementary math classrooms. The print version will start shipping in mid-October, and you can pre-order as well as preview the entire text online now.
