Transform mathematics learning from "doing" to "thinking"

Do some of your students arrive at wildly wrong answers to mathematical problems but have no idea why? If so, they are not alone. Many students lack basic numeracy—the ability to think through the math logically, solve problems, and apply math outside the classroom. This book outlines nine critical thinking habits that foster numeracy and details practical ways to incorporate those habits into instruction. Referencing the new common core standards, NCTM standards, and established literacy practices, the authors include "How Can I Do This in My Math Class…Tomorrow?" applications throughout the book that shows you how to:

  • Monitor and repair students′ understanding
  • Represent mathematics nonlinguistically
  • Develop students′ mathematics vocabulary
  • Create numeracy-rich lesson plans

Teaching Numeracy will help you move your students from simply "doing the math" to a deeper understanding of how to think through the math.
