  • This book differs from competing titles, in that a large-view approach at all five NCTM strands is taken.
  • The book contains articles that are content-based and provide additional assistance for teachers who do not understand the material they are required to teach.
  • Many of the articles focus on “out-of-the-box” topics/ideas/presentations, real-world contexts, and student misconceptions, which add to a reference text that is non-standard and unique.

About this book

The book provides an accumulation of articles, included in Focus on Mathematics Pedagogy and Content, a newsletter for teachers, published by Texas A&M University. Each article presents a discussion of a middle or high school mathematics topic. Many of the articles are written by professors at Texas A&M University. The book is broken into three parts, with the first part focusing on content and pedagogy, related to the NCTM content strands of Number, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement, and Statistics and Probability. Articles include an in-depth presentation of mathematical content, as well as suggested instructional strategies. Thus, the integration of content knowledge and pedagogical knowledge is emphasized. The second and third parts apply to assessments, mathematical games, teaching tips, and technological applications. While other pedagogical reference books may provide an in-depth look at how to teach a topic, this book includes articles that also explain a topic, in great length. Thus, teachers may develop content knowledge first and then re-read each article, in order to learn appropriate instructional strategies to use. Many articles include technological applications, which are interspersed throughout the book. In addition, a special section, which includes helpful information, available tools, training sessions, and other references, for using technology in mathematics, is also presented.
