Ways to Think About Mathematics will fill the gap between what the math teachers learned in college and what they are required to teach in today's classrooms. The book will be divided into five modules that focus on algebraic, geometric and statistical ideas. The book uses immersion in content to help secondary mathematics teachers improve their knowledge and understanding of mathematical concepts. Ways to Think About Mathematics gives teachers the opportunity to learn and understand the same math concepts and math problems that they will be teaching. This book can be used by individual teachers; whether preservice, novice teachers, or experienced teachers. It can also be used in staff development workshops or faculty teams. It is also appropriate for teacher education courses in secondary mathematics.

"This is a powerful teaching methodology that is bound to convey the spirit of problem-solving." -- MAA Reviews, June 2006
