Overview

Middle school teaching and learning has a distinct pedagogy and curriculum that is grounded in the concept of developmentally appropriate education. This text is designed to meet the very specific professional development needs of future teachers of mathematics in middle school environments.

Closely aligned with the NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, the reader-friendly, interactive format encourages readers to begin developing their own teaching style and making informed decisions about how to approach their future teaching career. A variety of examples establish a broad base of ideas intended to stimulate the formative development of concepts and models that can be employed in the classroom. Readers are encouraged and motivated to become teaching professionals who are lifelong learners.

The text offers a wealth of technology-related information and activities; reflective, thought-provoking questions; mathematical challenges; student life-based applications; TAG (tricks-activities-games) sections; and group discussion prompts to stimulate each future teacher's thinking. "Your Turn" sections ask readers to work with middle school students directly in field experience settings. This core text for middle school mathematics methods courses is also appropriate for elementary and secondary mathematics methods courses that address teaching in the middle school grades and as an excellent in-service resource for aspiring or practicing teachers of middle school mathematics as they update their knowledge base.
