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.'
...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.
