Editorial Reviews

Marilyn Curtis
"This book provides an indispensable set of tools to help teachers, coaches, and other curriculum leaders strengthen and improve content and pedagogical knowledge of mathematics in a variety of professional development opportunities. I encourage all mathematics leaders to add this book to their professional tool kit."
Jean May-Brett
“Not only does this book provide the resources mathematics leaders need to improve curriculum, instruction, and assessment; it strengthens the 'M' in STEM professional learning. When combined with The Science Leader's Guide to CTS, instructional leadership teams have access to a suite of standards and research-based designs and tools to foster connections and integrate the STEM disciplines.”
Midwest Book Review
"This book teaches the basics of linking standards and research to mathematics practice, and is a fine companion to MATHEMATICS CURRICULUM TOPIC STUDY."
