Review:

“A major strength is the collection of strategies tied to multiple learning styles. The framework provides educators with a purposeful way to choose different teaching techniques.” (Cheryl Rose Tobey, Senior Program Director for Mathematics 2009-11-30)

"Within hours of receiving their copies of this book, our high school math coaches were using math strategies in their classrooms and sharing their students’ successes with their colleagues. One coach raved, ′Finally! Things that I can use for teaching math! Not just something generic, and the examples are just the topics that my students need the most help learning.′" (Jody L Hoch, K-12 Director of Mathematics 2009-11-30)

“The book does a nice job introducing new ways to teach mathematics. The progressive ideas have students actively learning math. The wide variety of problems presented truly cover what could be in a middle school curriculum.” (Kathryn McCormick, Seventh-Grade Teacher 2009-11-30)

"This book offered me the necessary information to design my doctoral study using learning style intervention strategies to improve mathematical achievement for our middle school students. My teachers embraced this book with excitement and looked forward to putting the recommended strategies into action." (Jean M. Ferrara, K-12 District Mathematics Supervisor 2009-12-10)

"I picked up new techniques and formats to use in my everyday lessons. The lessons were helpful in changing and differentiating instruction in the classroom, not only to meet the needs and learning preferences of each student, but also to step away from the daily class routine. At first, the students were not used to these engaging activities. However, as they got used to abstract ways of thinking, they participated more and felt more comfortable. It was nice to see them being involved in their education." (Jacquelyn Baldini, Math and LAL Teacher 2009-12-10)

"An excellent tool with easy-to-understand examples that take teachers into the 21st-century classroom approach to learning. The sections on why the strategies work speaks to the research that is critical in teaching these days." (Diana Rogers, Regional Coordinator 2010-02-04)

"The strategies brought my teaching to a level where my students enjoyed learning mathematics. More important, they understood the concepts, which gave them the skills and confidence to excel." (Amber S. Koonce, Teacher 2010-02-11)

"Having taught middle school mathematics for more than 20 years, I truly believe this is an awesome math methods book for middle school teachers. This research-based book fully documents the different learning styles and demonstrates tangible strategies that meet the NCTM process standards. Each chapter includes best practices, defines various strategies, and provides variations and extensions. Each strategy is explained in detail with actual practice problems and great discussion." (Edna F. Bazik, Mathematics Education Program Coordinator 2009-12-10)

"This is one of the best, most practical books I have read in over 30 years as an educator. The book is set up so that every teacher could easily use it to improve mathematics instruction. Every child deserves to be in a learning environment where these styles and strategies are common practice. I highly recommend this book as a tool to improve student performance." (Elizabeth Fannin, Educational Consultant 2010-03-04)

"This book contains interesting strategies that can be incorporated into solid, conceptual teaching." (Georgia A. Cobbs 2011-11-21)
