Exemplary practices for secondary math teachers by
Alfred S Posamentier(
)
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Every year new secondary mathematics teachers take up positions in middle and high schools. The luckiest novices receive assistance from a coach or mentor: a master mathematics teacher who makes constructive comments, models effective approaches, and illuminates other practical aspects of teaching secondary math. But many new teachers don't have this advantage and must further their development on their own. If you are one of these teachers, this is the book you need. In these pages, veteran mathematics educators Alfred S. Posamentier, Daniel Jaye, and Stephen Krulik present a treasure chest of ideas to guide new secondary math teachers through the challenging first few months and also provide more experienced teachers with interesting alternatives to familiar methods. The topics covered include: The most effective instructional practices; The best uses of the textbook; Designing successful lessons; Creating homework that promotes learning; Incorporating challenge; Teaching reasoning and problem solving; Strategies for assessment and grading; Specific innovative ideas for teaching key concepts; Options for extracurricular activities; Longterm professional enrichment and growth. It's during the first few years of a teacher's experience that he or she develops the habits, methods, procedures, and techniques that tend to define a career. Exemplary Practices for Secondary Math Teachers provides both a foundation for excellence and a touchstone for years to come.  Publisher

A mathematics laboratory handbook for secondary schools by
Stephen Krulik(
Book
)
8 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The major part of this book consists of 36 activities for secondary school mathematics laboratories. Each activity is presented in the form of a carefullyworded direction sheet which may be copied for individual use by the students. Activities are grouped in five categories: (1) PreAlgebra, (2) Algebra, (3) Geometry, (4) Topology, and (5) Probability and Statistics. Some of the activities are strictly for enrichment, but most could be used as an integral part of a standard instructional sequence. The book also contains a discussion of the rationale of a mathematics laboratory, with suggestions for its organization, and an annotated list of commercially available materials. (Mm)

How to use the overhead projector in mathematics education by
Stephen Krulik(
Book
)
7 editions published between 1966 and 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The overhead projector is a simple and effective teaching aid in mathematics instruction. Most transparencies for projection can be made easily and inexpensively by the teacher using readily available materials. Although expensive, some commercially prepared transparencies are indispensible, because of involved preparation technIQues or equipment. Use of the overhead projector effects savings in time, enables examples of problems to be stored and reused at will, and enriches the teaching of otherwise difficult and complex ideas. References of other publications about visual aids are listed as well as sources of readymade transparencies and sources of specialized supplies for preparing projectuals. This document was published by the national council of teachers of mathematics, 1201 sixteenth st., N.w., Washington, D.C. 20036 (cs)

The art of motivating students for mathematics instruction by
Alfred S Posamentier(
Book
)
5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Effective teaching is largely reliant on the teacher's ability to capture the genuine interest of the students for the material to be taught. This naturally rests on the planning that the teacher exerts in preparation for the lesson. Perhaps the single most important aspect of any lesson is the beginning of the lesson where the teacher must motivate the students for the ensuing lesson. This can be done in many ways and is also largely measure a function of the teacher's personality and voice. Studies have shown that what a teacher says accounts for 7% of the effectiveness package, the tone of the teacher's voice and the enthusiasm accounts for 38%, and the "body language" accounts for 55%. Teachers should be entertaining, without ever losing control of the lesson, and yet not be completely scripted to prevent accommodation to the quirks of any class. Yet even the finest style of presentation  an important part of any teaching performance  can only offer a portion of the overall effectiveness. The content of what is said is paramount! This then leads us into the theme of the book, namely, the techniques that can be used to motivate students in the first few minutes of almost any lesson in mathematics. This could be the most difficult part of a lesson to plan. It requires a modicum of creativity and yet it pays back by enabling a successful lesson. It is a very worthwhile investment of time"
