Description:

This title is only available as a loose-leaf version with Pearson eText. Teaching Secondary Mathematics, 9/e combines methods of teaching mathematics, including all aspects and responsibilities of the job, with a collection of enrichment units appropriate for the entire secondary school curriculum spectrum to give teachers alternatives for making professional judgments about their teaching performance--and ensuring effective learning. The book is divided into two parts designed to ensure effective teaching and learning: Part I includes a focus on the job of teaching mathematics and Part II includes enrichment activities appropriate for the entire secondary school curriculum. Both the Common Core State Standards and The National Council of teachers of Mathematics Principles and Standards for School Mathematics are referred to throughout the book. The new Ninth Edition features an alignment with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), with special focus on the mathematical practices, an updated technology chapter that shows how current tools and software can be used for teaching mathematics, and an updated chapter on assessment showing show to provide targeted feedback to advance the learning of every student. 0133783677 / 9780133783674 Teaching Secondary Mathematics: Techniques and Enrichment Units, Loose-Leaf Version with Video-Enhanced Pearson eText -- Access Card Package Package consists of:  0132824833 / 9780132824835 Teaching Secondary Mathematics: Techniques and Enrichment Units, Loose-Leaf Version0133824802 / 9780133824803 Teaching Secondary Mathematics: Techniques and Enrichment Units, Pearson eText -- Access Card

Alfred S. Posamentier is professor of mathematics education and dean of the School of Education at the City College of the City University of New York. He has authored and co-authored several resource books in mathematics education for Corwin Press.

Alfred S. Posamentieris Professor of Mathematics Education and Dean of the School of Education of The City College of the City University of New York. He is the author and co-author of many mathematics books for teachers and secondary school students.nbsp; nbsp; After completing his A.B. degree in mathematics at Hunter College of the City University of New York, he took a position as a teacher of mathematics at Theodore Roosevelt High School in the Bronx (New York), where he focused his attention on the teaching process in general and the improvement of students' problem-solving skills in particular. He developed the school's first mathematics teams and established a special class whose primary focus was enrichment topics in mathematics and problem solving. After six years as a high school teacher, Dr. Posamentier joined the faculty of The City College where he also received his masterrsquo;s degree. He began to develop in-service courses for secondary school mathematics teachers, focusing on practical classroom applications of educational research. These courses addressed such topics as the uses of new technology in mathematics instruction, efficient ways to teach weaker students, problem-solving strategies, and the enrichment of mathematics through a variety of ways including, but not limited to, recreational mathematics. nbsp; Dr. Posamentier received his Ph.D. from Fordham University (New York) in mathematics education. He is an Honorary Fellow at the South Bank University (London, England). He has been visiting professor at the Technical University of Vienna and the Humboldt University at Berlin, and a Fulbright Professor at the University of Vienna.nbsp; Dr. Posamentier is often cited for his outstanding teaching. The City College Alumni Association named him Educator of the Year (1993) and he also on May 1, 1993 had a "Day" named in his honor by the City Council President of New York City. He was awarded theGrand Medal of Honorfrom the Federal Republic of Austria and theMedal of Distinctionfrom the city of Vienna. In 1999 he was awarded the title of University Professor for Austrian Universities. nbsp; Now, after more than 35 years on the faculty of CCNY, he still exudes an ever-increasing energy and enthusiasm for mathematics and mathematics education. With his penchant for mathematics instruction, he has been especially concerned that during the recent years of mathematics teacher shortages, those who enter the classroom are as well prepared as possible. He enthusiastically believes that providing mathematics teachers with an appropriate repertoire of teaching strategies enables them to fulfill an essential role in society: empowering our nation's youngsters to engage in the critical study of mathematics. nbsp; Dr. Beverly SmithBeverly Smith holds a, MA and Ed.D. in mathematics education from Teachers College - Columbia University and an M.S. degree in computer science from Union College. Prior to becoming a mathematics-teacher-educator, Dr. Smith taught mathematics and computer science at the secondary school and college level in New York State and Massachusetts.nbsp;nbsp; She is currently an Associate Professor in the Secondary Education Department at The City College of New York.nbsp; Dr. Smithrsquo;s research interests are in the area of teacher professional development.nbsp; As part of her responsibilities as a faculty member of MetroMath: The Center for Mathematics in Americarsquo;s Cities, she is studying the development of alternatively certified mathematics teachers who are participating in the New York City Teaching Fellows Program.nbsp; In addition, Dr. Smith is working with mathematics teachers to better understand how technology can support formative assessment in urban mathematics classrooms.
