Abstract:

Providing effective leadership for school mathematics programs is particularly challenging in an era of both ambitious Common Core State Standards and unprecedented pressure to raise mathematics achievement. In this updated edition of the bestselling Sensible Mathematics, Steve Leinwand provides principals, teacher leaders, math coaches, and administrators with specific guidance on how to make the necessary shifts in curriculum, instruction, assessment, and professional development to meet and exceed the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics. Even more important, he shows us why these changes are so urgently needed if we truly are to prepare students to become mathematical thinkers in a twenty-first-century world.

Leinwand examines how mathematics teaching and learning has changed in the ten years since he wrote the first edition of Sensible Mathematics, and how the Common Core raises the bar even higher. Sensible Mathematics serves as a guiding light through the sea of change and provides a broad array of practical strategies for implementing the standards, as well as how-to plans for overcoming obstacles and challenges. Other topics of discussion include:

Making the case for changes: strategies, ammunition, and compelling examples.

Intervention: providing effective support services.

Technology and instruction: providing access for teachers and students.

15 key components of a high performance mathematics program.

Sensible Mathematics is a call-to-arms for positive, realistic change that empowers teachers and prepares students for our changing world. Make a difference-move your school mathematics program into the twenty-first century.
