    “Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching: Grades 6–8 is an excellent resource for a variety of professionals, including teachers, curriculum supervisors, and professional development providers. First, the book guides education professionals in ways that develop pedagogical content knowledge and build upon classroom-based teaching situations. Readers are often encouraged to reflect on mathematics concepts needed to support middle school students learning during classroom instruction. Second, there are numerous connections between mathematics topics described in the Standards for Mathematics Content and the Standards for Mathematical Practice. The authors link behaviors and habits described in the Standards for Mathematical Practice with practical applications. Third, readers are encouraged to think with, about, and through mathematical representations in every chapter. Thinking in this manner supports teachers to design and enact mathematics teaching that promotes equity and access for all learners. Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching: Grades 6–8 engages the reader from start to finish on a journey of professional growth in mathematics education.”

    Jonathan D. Bostic, assistant professor of mathematics education, Bowling Green State University, Ohio
