From the Publisher:

The practical alternative to texts that are too long on theory and too short on techniques! In the first half of the text, the author presents a wealth of specific, step-by-step techniques and skills for teaching secondary mathematics. He includes such topics as preparing lessons and tests, motivating, designing assignments, and organizing the classroom. The second half consists of 120 self-contained enrichment units...hands-on ideas ready for use in junior and senior high classrooms, together with performance objectives, motivation ideas, teaching strategies, and pre- and post-tests...each cross-referenced to methods coverage presented earlier.
