Facilitating mathematical investigations with teachers will help improve their teaching!

National and state standards suggest that mathematical investigation, problem solving, and exploratory learning should play a central role in mathematics lessons. It is therefore necessary for teachers to experience mathematical explorations as learners themselves. This Facilitator Guide and accompanying CD-ROM provides resources for planning and implementing courses and workshops using Ways to Think About Mathematics by containing:

  • Commentary on the activities
  • Pedagogical suggestions (materials sequencing, promoting active participation, adapting to the needs of particular teachers)
  • Additional reading and problems tied to the content of the main text
  • Sample solutions for all problems and discussion questions
