In today's classrooms, the instructional needs and developmental levels of our students are highly varied, and the conventional math whole-group model has its downsides. In contrast to the rigid, one-size-ts-all approach of conventional whole-group instruction, guided math allows us to structure our math block to support student learning in risk-free, small-group instruction. Guided math goes beyond just reorganizing your math block; it also gives you an opportunity to approach math instruction with a renewed sense of perspective and purpose. Drawing on two decades of experience, Reagan Tunstall oers step-by-step best practices to help educators revolutionize their math blocks with a student-centered approach. Whether you're a new teacher who's curious about guided math or a veteran educator looking to hone your methodology, Guided Math AMPED will transform your math block into an exciting and engaging encounter that encourages your students to see themselves as genuine mathematicians.
