Students pursue problems they’re curious about, not problems they’re told to solve.

Creating a math classroom filled with confident problem solvers starts with challenges discovered in the real world, not a sequence of prescribed problems. 

In this groundbreaking book, Gerald Aungst offers five powerful principles for instilling a culture of learning in your classroom: Conjecture, Collaboration, Communication, Chaos, and Celebration.

Aungst shows how to:

  • Embrace collaboration and purposeful chaos to engage students in productive struggle
  • Put each chapter’s principles into practice using a variety of strategies, activities, and technology tools
  • Introduce lasting changes in your classroom through a gradual shift in processes and behaviors
