Bamberger familiarize you with ways to help students see the relationships between and among mathematical skills and content. They offer an array of entry points for understanding, planning, and teaching, including strategies that help students build upon and link mathematical thinking across units by recognizing connections among math concepts, real-world applications, and other content areas.
The book and accompanying CD-ROM are filled with activities that are
If your students aren't making mathematical connections, or if you're simply looking for ways to work the connections standard into your curriculum, read, dog-ear, and teach with Introduction to Connections.
