Teaching Mathematics: Strategies that Work. Teachers Writing to Teachers Series.
Driscoll, Mark, Ed.; Confrey, Jere, Ed.
The chapters in this book were written by teachers to share strategies they have found effective in the mathematics classroom. Most describe a teaching idea or activity in sufficient detail for other teachers in elementary, middle, and secondary schools to be able to use it. The chapters concern: manipulative materials, developing a mathematics program, problem solving, fraction games, word problems (for kids by kids), teaching students to think in mathematics to make conjectures, using a computer language (Logo), statistics (real-world applications of probability and statistics for middle grades), geometry (using the computer program, Geometric Supposer, and strategies for junior high), remedial mathematics, diagram drawing (to explain concepts), mathematics laboratories, applied mathematics for vocational education students, puzzles, computer software, drill (DARES--Daily Assorted Review Exercise Set--in Oklahoma Public Schools), calculus, questioning, and underprepared students.
