Description

A schoolwide solution for mathematics success!

When “rules” seem to change from year to year, mathematics can seem like a disconnected mystery for students. Clear up the confusion with a Mathematics Whole-School Agreement! Expanded from the highly popular “Rules that Expire” series of NCTM articles, this essential guide leads educators through the collaborative step-by-step process of establishing a coherent and consistent learner-centered and equitable approach to mathematics instruction. You’ll learn to avoid “rules that expire”—tricks that may seem to help students in one grade but hurt in the long run. Features include

·         Abundant grade-specific examples

·         Effective working plans for sustainability

·         Barrier-busting tips, to-dos, and try-it-outs

·         PLC prompts and discussion points
