Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is a valuable addition to the textbooks available for prospective secondary mathematics teachers. The style is refreshing, the approach is modern without being radical, and the mathematics is substantive. A preservice teacher completing this textbook would be well prepared to provide a mathematically rich learning environment. Experienced mathematics teachers also can benefit from reading this book. Thus, the book can make a strong contribution to the mathematical education of both preservice and in-service mathematics teachers.'
Mathematics Teacher

...A resource I wish I'd had as a candidate going through the certification process....One must be able to 'talk the talk' by linking practices to standards and accepted educational research. This book goes there and more. I would recommend it to any candidate who is evaluating the teaching and learning of mathematics in the secondary classroom.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book had some useful items in it, but it was full of NCTM standards and ideas. You can't teach in the traditional way because kids can't become problem-solvers if you do, blah blah blah. (Somehow I managed to be a problem-solver in spite of being taught in a traditional way.) It seemed to be saying that all motivation to learn has to come from the teacher, but that just doesn't work, no matter how entertaining the teacher is. Yes, tie math to the real world, but the student has to bring his own buy-in at some point along the way and just buckle down and do the work.

This textbook is not my cup of tea. I have to read it for a course I'm taking and it is hard to get through. The ideas in it sound great, but are very idealistic. Some of the things they suggest and strongly encourage would be extremely hard to put into use in an actual classroom. Trying to be optimistic as I read on...

it was required reading for a continuing education course I was taking. It was totally inappropriate for a person who has been teaching for ten plus years. However this is the fault of the University, not the author of the book.
