Teaching Secondary and Middle School Mathematics combines up-to-date technology and research with a vibrant writing style to help teachers grasp curriculum, teaching, and assessment issues as they relate to secondary and middle school mathematics. Designed for pre-service or in-service teachers, the second edition presents concise, current, and meaningful descriptions of what it takes to be an effective teacher of mathematics. This extensively revised, practical resource offers a balance of theory and practice, including a wealth of examples and descriptions of classroom situations to assist students in visualizing mathematics instruction in the classroom. 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. Appendices include a descriptive list of recommended Internet Web sites on mathematics education and two case studies for further discussion.
