Summary

Written by a team of nationally known mathematics educators and mathematicians who have experience in teaching at the public school and university levels, this text builds on the recommendations of NCTM's Principles and Standards. It provides guidance in teaching content and developing processes in students from the middle school through high school. Its emphasis on mathematical modeling as an approach focuses on the development of the competencies needed to teach contemporary curricular materials in today's schools.
