Good but vague
on November 12, 2006
Overall I found this book to be well written, informative, and practical. The main text covers the same information as general education courses but applies it to the mathematics classroom. My only complaint with the text is that it proposes solutions to problems or situations and then says that the teacher must decide what is best for the class. Yes, every class is different and the teacher knows the needs of the students better than an author, but while reading the book, I felt that the authors didn't want to committ to deciding what the best practice would be.
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.
