This is a funny title for a post because I have to say that this math book hasn't "changed" my teaching exactly, but it has opened my eyes to how we can simplify our teaching. I'm reading Building Mathematical Comprehension: Using Literacy Strategies to Make Meaning by Laney Sammons. I chose to read this book. Teaching critical and creative thinking skills strategies will help your students perform better in school. Other benefits of critical thinking skills and problem-solving include: evaluate information and making reasoned decisions; assessing strength and weaknesses independently through self-reflection; analysing ideas and making connections.

Readers interested in increasing the effectiveness of the book can do so by working on the examples in addition to the problems thereby increasing the number of problems to over In addition to being a valuable resource of mathematical problems and solution strategies, this volume is the most complete training book on the market. Many ideas are from Roy Killen's book - Effective Teaching Strategies: Lessons from research and practice (). Teaching Strategy #4: Problem Solving Problem solving as a teaching strategy is about teaching through problem solving, in other words – it’s about ‘using problem solving as a technique to help students learn’ (Killen, ).

Book Talks I suppose you might think of these as the modern, more in-depth equivalent of the traditional book is a way to encourage students to get more involved with reading. Students make a book recommendation to their peers in an organized way that includes a bit of personal reflection on what they enjoyed about the book. Students practice word problems and problem-solving with games, puzzles, creative thinking, and more. This printable book will really improve your students' mathematics skills.
