Creating a math classroom filled with confident problem solvers starts by introducing challenges discovered in the real world, not by presenting a sequence of prescribed problems, says Gerald Aungst.
In this groundbreaking book, he offers a thoughtful approach for instilling a culture of learning in your classroom through five powerful, yet straightforward principles: Conjecture, Collaboration, Communication, Chaos, and Celebration.
Aungst shows you how to
•Embrace collaboration and purposeful chaos to help students engage in productive struggle, using nonroutine and unsolved problems
•Put each chapter’s principles into practice through a variety of strategies, activities, and by incorporating technology tools
•Introduce substantive, lasting cultural changes in your classroom through a manageable, gradual shift in processes and behaviors
