The appendix of enrichment plans is the reason I am not reselling the book. It includes so many activities to try with all levels of math students that I feel the price of the book might well be justified.
For my math pedagogy classes we use this Posamentier's Teaching Secondary Math and Van de Walle's Elementary and Middle School Math. I like Posamentier's much more. I could imagine the ideas of this book applied to honors math classes and the math oriented high schools. Posamentier uses a lot of Geometry examples in this book and they seem very useful for teaching geometry. I think there are a lot of challenging problems that are good for high school students: Erastothene's measuring the circumference of the earth, Gauss' arithmetic series. exploring triangle medians with Geometer, Birthday Probability Problem. Posamentier also uses the Graphing Calculator a lot with this book- model train distance problem, medication, compound interest. And yes, solutions and how to set up the problem on the Graphing Calculator are given. I don't remember, but I think Posamentier does include a fair amount of problems on how to use Excel to math problems like simple interest and probability.
Posamentier also provides math examples for motivating students: Tell a story, present a challenge, show the sequential knowledge, show a gap in student understanding. I feel that Posamentier knows his stuff, his tone in writing is concise and to the point.
The book doesn't include it, but I would like to have seen how Posamentier would exactly teach a high school math lesson.
Once again, there is a lot of geometry material presented in this book. I would have liked to have seen more trigonometry, there is a lack of examples on how to teach trig. I respect Posamentier, and I'm happy to have learned from his book.

Most the things I found were useful. Sometimes it used more words than necessary. It is a good supplement to other resources.Published 24 months ago by Joseph Bywater
