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. As students progress through high school, they make important decisions about which mathematics courses they will take and how well they will perform in these courses. The ideas and advice from experienced educators in this book are designed to help the beginning high school teacher think about both the global and the particular issues that he or she will encounter at the outset of his or her high school teaching experience.
