Teaching Secondary Mathematics, 9/e combines methods of teaching mathematics, including all aspects and responsibilities of the job, with a collection of enrichment units appropriate for the entire secondary school curriculum spectrum to give teachers alternatives for making professional judgments about their teaching performance—and ensuring effective learning. The book is divided into two parts designed to ensure effective teaching and learning: Part I includes a focus on the job of teaching mathematics and Part II includes enrichment activities appropriate for the entire secondary school curriculum. Both the Common Core State Standards and The National Council of teachers of Mathematics Principles and Standards for School Mathematics are referred to throughout the book. The new Ninth Edition features an alignment with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), with special focus on the mathematical practices, an updated technology chapter that shows how current tools and software can be used for teaching mathematics, and an updated chapter on assessment showing show to provide targeted feedback to advance the learning of every student.

About the Author
Alfred S. Posamentier is Professor of Mathematics Education and Dean of the School of Education of The City College of the City University of New York. He is the author and co-author of many mathematics books for teachers and secondary school students.
After completing his A.B. degree in mathematics at Hunter College of the City University of New York, he took a position as a teacher of mathematics at Theodore Roosevelt High School in the Bronx (New York), where he focused his attention on the teaching process in general and the improvement of students' problem-solving skills in particular. He developed the school's first mathematics teams and established a special class whose primary focus was enrichment topics in mathematics and problem solving. After six years as a high school teacher, Dr. Posamentier joined the faculty of The City College where he also received his master’s degree. He began to develop in-service courses for secondary school mathematics teachers, focusing on practical classroom applications of educational research. These courses addressed such topics as the uses of new technology in mathematics instruction, efficient ways to teach weaker students, problem-solving strategies, and the enrichment of mathematics through a variety of ways including, but not limited to, recreational mathematics.
Dr. Beverly Smith is an associate professor and the Mathematics Education Program Director at the City College of New York. Believing that quality mathematics teachers must first have a deep knowledge of mathematics they teach and love for the discipline, she has worked to support new teachers as they prepare to teach in some of our countries most diverse school systems. Throughout her career, Dr. Smith has been a tireless champion of equity in education. Her early college teaching experience involved working under a federally funded Special Services grant to create a developmental mathematics program designed to support at-risk inner-city students as they transitioned to college. While working toward her doctoral degree, she accepted a position at the State University of New York at Potsdam in the School of Education and worked with the Great Lake Collaborative to develop an integrated mathematics, science, and technology program for diverse K–12 schools from the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation all the way to the larger Syracuse City Schools.
