Exemplary practices for secondary math teachers by Alfred S Posamentier( )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,618 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; Long-term 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 )

7 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 221 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 carefully-worded direction sheet which may be copied for individual use by the students. Activities are grouped in five categories: (1) Pre-Algebra, (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)

Problem solving : a handbook for senior high school teachers by Stephen Krulik( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The teaching of problem solving begins the moment a child first enters school and the senior high school plays a major role in the development of this skill since a number of students terminate their formal education at the end of this period. This book combines suggestions for the teaching of problem solving with activities, problems, and strategy games that students find interesting as they gain valuable experiences in problem solving. Over 120 classroom-tested problems are included. Discussions in this volume include a definition of problem solving, heuristics, and how to teach problem solving. Also provided are collections of strategy games and nonroutine problems, including 35 reproducible blackline masters for selected problems and game boards; and a bibliography of 51 resources on problem solving.

The art of motivating students for mathematics instruction by Alfred S Posamentier( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 116 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"--
