Improving Math Performance What do you think is the single most important factor in dramatically improving students’ math performance in your school? Regardless of their specific mathematics programs, No Child Left Behind - Blue Ribbon Schools use many similar instructional techniques. All emphasize alignment of the school’s mathematics.

In Literacy Strategies for Improving Mathematics Instruction, Joan M. Kenney and her coauthors describe common ways in which students misinterpret the language of To succeed in the study of arithmetic, geometry, or algebra, students must learn what is effectively a second language of mathematical terms and symbols/5(2). Improving Mathematics at Work questions the mathematical knowledge and skills that matter in the twenty-first century world of work, and studies how the use of mathematics in the workplace is evolving in the rapidly-changing context of new technologies and globalisation.

This book focuses on how to improve the teaching and learning of primary level mathematics education within resource-constrained contexts. It builds on two large numeracy projects within South Africa which speak to broader, global concerns and highlight how research and development not only enables one to meet ethical imperatives but also explore how further interventions can be developed. Authentic Intellectual Work: Improving Teaching for Rigorous Learning offers educators a valuable framework for constructing the kinds of learning we would hope all of our students experience – grounded in serious inquiry around the topics well-equipped citizens must be prepared to address in an informed society. Just as important, the.
