Reviews and Testimonials
Practicing and research mathematics educators offer conceptual and empirical perspectives on the early phases of implementing the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, both the Grade Level Content Standards and the eight Standards for Mathematical Practice. They cover frameworks and conceptual orientations, content and context, vignettes and cases, and innovative approaches to teacher education and professional development. Among specific topics are supporting mathematical communication through technology, the design and implementation of computational modeling for learning mathematical concepts, supporting pattern exploration and algebraic reasoning through the use of spreadsheets, supporting teachers' instrumental genesis with dynamic mathematical software, and using digital resources to support elementary school teachers who are implementing the Standards.
