Summer Book Study 2020

Understanding mathematics is different from understanding how to teach mathematics. Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching is a valuable resource for anyone involved in mathematics education. It provides clear descriptions not only of the main mathematical ideas for the various grade bands but also how those main ideas progress. The authors provide readers with multiple representations of each concept, as well as ways to implement these ideas in the classroom.


GAMES is very excited to offer a five-week book study based on the book series…
