Summer Book Study 2022

“Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics, Grades K-12 helps teachers implement 14 optimal practices for thinking that create an ideal setting for deep mathematics learning to occur. When combined, these unique research-based practices create the optimal conditions for learning-centered, student-owned deep mathematical thinking and learning, and have the power to transform mathematics classrooms like never before.”

– COVER NOTES

“Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics exudes enthusiasm for students, how they think, and how those thoughts coalesce into powerful thinking classrooms. It’s also deeply practical, describing how everything from the teacher’s questions to the arrangement of the furniture can add to your students’ learning.”

– DAN MEYER, CHIEF ACADEMIC OFFICER, DESMOS
