This middle school mathematics and social studies curriculum integrates goals and strategies consistent with the NCTM Standards to help students create mathematical questions; conduct research, record, interpret, and discuss results; and learn about the uses and misuses of math in real world decision-making. It includes lesson plans and activities appropriate for heterogeneously grouped classes; suggestions for assessment; an appendix on cooperative-learning techniques; and a chart correlating the curriculum activities to NCTM Standards. Student handouts are also available for purchase through Educators for Social Responsibility.

Being able to have discussions in my math class was terrific! I have never had the joy of experiencing that before. Without The Power of Numbers we would have floundered at every step. --Christina Swain, Teacher, Newburyport
Clearly the best application of the NCTM Standards on the Market. The Power of Numbers is just what middle school math and social studies teachers have been looking for. It is designed to support the unique structure and cooperative learning styles of the middle school classroom, while offering thought-provoking, engaging experiences for students. --James Garvin, Ph.D., Executive Director, New England League of Middle Schools
I very much like the way the curriculum puts math in its context. This is especially important for female students. The Power of Numbers encourages students to think critically about what they read in the news from researchers and pollsters. This is what math is about. Bravo! --Sundra Flansberg, Associate Director, Womens Educational Equity Act Publishing Center, Education Development Center
