Kickstart your high school math class!

Do your students need more opportunities do develop number sense and reasoning? Are you looking to get your students energized and talking about mathematics? Have you wondered how practical, replicable, and engaging activities would complement your mathematics instruction?
This guide answers the question “What could I do differently?” Taking cues from popular number sense and reasoning routines, this book gives you the rundown on how to engage in five different daily 5–10 minute routines, all of which include content-specific examples, extensions, and variations of each for algebra, functions, geometry, and data analysis. Video demonstrations allow you to see the routines in action and the book includes a year’s worth of daily instructional material that you can use to begin each class period. The routines in this book will help students:
  • Frequently revisit essential mathematical concepts
  • Foster and shore up conceptual understanding
  • Engage in mental mathematics, leading to efficiency and fluency
  • Engage in mathematical discourse by constructing viable arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others
  • Reason mathematically, and prepare for high stakes assessments
  • Move learning beyond “correctness” by valuing mistakes and discourse and encouraging a growth mindset
From trusted authors and experts Eric Milou and John SanGiovanni, this teacher-friendly resource will give you all the tools and tips you need to reinvent those critical first five or ten minutes of math class for the better!
“Too often, middle school and high school teachers say, ‘These students are lacking number sense.’ These books will help secondary teachers with good pedagogy to help build number sense in a creative way. Eric Milou and John SanGiovanni have created short routines that are teacher-friendly, with lots of examples, and easy to adapt to each teacher’s needs. These are the books that secondary teachers have been waiting for to help engage students in building number sense.”

“Thank you, Eric and John, for creating this practical resource that supports and guides high school mathematics teachers in redesigning beginnings of mathematics lessons to capture attention and engage ALL students in mathematical reasoning, mental mathematics, and discourse in order to develop deeper understandings of number and improve overall mathematics learning. This book is a necessary resource for EVERY high school mathematics teacher!”

“‘Routines’ in the high school classrooms are needed to help transform instructional practices that start classes with meaningful engagement opportunities and connect to students’ previous learned practices from elementary and middle school mathematics classrooms.”

"Don’t just manipulate symbols, help students ponder about what the symbols mean. This book provides effective ways of helping students stretch the limits of their thinking and develop a deeper understanding of mathematics. It can really help in achieving your primary goal—the development of developing comfortable and confident problem solvers!”
