### Summary

Designed for pre-service or in-service teachers, Teaching Secondary and Middle School Mathematics offers succinct, current, and meaningful descriptions of what it takes to be an effective teacher of mathematics. This practical resource offers an effective balance of theory and practice, including a wealth of examples and descriptions of classroom situations. The units of the book include the nature of mathematics, the curriculum, lesson and unit planning (including a chapter on how technology influences planning), assessment, and the teaching profession. Appendices include reprints of selected NCTM Standards, sample State-level outcomes, case studies, a descriptive list of recommended Internet websites on mathematics education, and over 40 sample lessons and activities from various areas of mathematics. The 10-chapter format was designed with the professor in-mind. Most colleges and universities are on 10-week quarters or 15-week semesters, so it is practical to assign roughly one chapter per week. Each chapter contains specific outcomes for the reader, a glossary of relevant terms, several discussion questions and an extensive bibliography that contains references and suggested readings.
