Lessons & Activities for Building Powerful Numeracy

Placeholder Image

From the Introduction:

“I wrote Building Powerful Numeracy for Middle & High School Students to bring the wonderful world of research in numeracy at the elementary level to the secondary world.  Lessons & Activities for Building Powerful Numeracy continues that work, providing classroom resources for you to help your students build numeracy.”

”There are two main types of activities in this workbook: Student Workouts and teacher-directed activities (strings, as close as it gets, and relational thinking).  The Workouts (new in this book) are to be distributed to students to work on independently or in pairs.  The teacher then leads a class discussion of the problems and the relationships and the strategies they reveal.  These are often used as warmups.  The teacher-directed activities, on the other hand, involve you, the teacher, actively throughout the activity.  Both types help build a solid numeracy base.”
