Editorial Reviews

Dr. Edmund C. Higgins
Nick Rinaldi shares the many strategies he has developed in his lifetime as an extra-ordinary and dedicated math teacher. His strategies are not only effective but supported by the most recent research on teaching and learning. His focus is totally student-centered with his goal being every student achieving success in the math classroom. The many and varied strategies he presents will enable teachers of math to engage their students in learning, understanding, and relating math concepts to the real world. A real treasure.
Thomas Webster
Nick Rinaldi is not just an educator. He is an educator's educator. Whether his clientèle is high school students, prospective teachers or veteran teachers, his approaches to positive classroom management, student-centered learning environments and support for ALL learners are techniques that EVERY teacher should strive to model in their classroom. The Math Teacher's Toolbox should be required reading in any teacher preparation program and a resource for any math department.
John Ciochine
As a teacher-educator with extensive experience in public education, I found Mr. Rinaldi's book to be a practical down-to-earth approach to help new and veteran teachers bring a fresh and interesting perspective to teaching mathematics at all levels. A must read for all who want ways to engage students to be motivated in mathematics.
Clayton R. Hall
Nick Rinaldi is a very experienced master teacher who has arranged an extensive collection of student-centered activities that are fun and instructive—for both the teacher and the students! The book is easy to use and inspiring to read. It should not be in every library, but rather in the classroom of every teacher of mathematics.
