SKU: MT6402 Categories: ,


Addressing rigorous standards. Engaging all students. Differentiating instruction. Raising student achievement. These are the challenges that teachers of mathematics confront every day. To help math teachers meet these challenges, the authors of Math Tools have refined and updated their best-selling text. With new tools and techniques aligned to the Common Core Math Practices, the second edition of Math Tools is an all-in-one classroom management resource that helps math teachers address challenging standards, differentiate instruction, and keep students engaged—all at the same time. 

The 60-plus tools in this second edition will enable teachers of mathematics to

  • Work in smarter, more efficient ways with all students, no matter the class size or composition.
  • Create standards-based lessons, activities, and formative assessments.
  • Reach every student regardless of understanding level or learning style.
  • Integrate technology and multimedia into class time for more engaging lessons.

This book ensures that math teachers are fully equipped to make the ambitions of today’s mathematics standards a reality in every classroom.

I was hooked within the first 30 pages! Ideas were racing through my mind—I’m excited to blog about it and use it in the classroom. Applies to teachers of all ages—a lot of solid explanations for newbies but still full of resources that any teachers can use or modify. Any book that makes me think, and especially think about improving my practice, is definitely a worthwhile investment. Invest in yourself!
