Those beginning the journey as teachers of mathematics will encounter challenges both inside and outside the classroom. The Editorial/Author Panel for the Needs of Mathematics Teachers Beginning Their Careers has compiled this volume to help new teachers reach their full potential as mathematics educators, thereby improving the mathematics learning of their students. The featured articles, related thematic ideas, lists of tips and advice, personal testimonies, quick notes, quotable thoughts, and journal pages for taking notes found in this book highlight six broad categories: professional growth, curriculum and instruction, classroom management and organization, classroom-level assessment, equity, and school and community. Middle school mathematics teachers extend the mathematical ideas and understandings that their students bring from their elementary school experience, thereby preparing them for a more in-depth study of mathematics in high school and postsecondary education. This series of articles that offer guidance and advice will assist the beginning middle school teacher in addressing her or his students' needs and helping them develop an appreciation for mathematics.
