Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching High School actively engages the learner in tasks to promote a deeper understanding of mathematical content. The authors include video-based classroom vignettes that deepen the learner’s pedagogical knowledge. This book is full of questions that take the learner into a deep exploration of a topic in order to make connections among different representations of an idea and challenge one’s own understanding. Any teacher reading this book can walk away with stronger content and pedagogical knowledge for teaching concepts across the high school curriculum.”

Daniel R. Ilaria, associate professor of mathematics education, West Chester University, Pennsylvania

“This is the first book I have ever come across that addresses the mathematics and the pedagogy needed to be an effective mathematics teacher. It puts the theory into action, and it is nice to see mathematics educators practice what they preach! It is our duty to shift our practices and mindsets, because our students deserve better. I cannot wait to engage in learning around the core beliefs of this book with my high school mathematics teachers!”

Brian Dean, senior instructional specialist for 6–12 mathematics, Pasco County Schools, Florida
