Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent resource for any math teacher. Rather than focusing on the simple rules and procedures of mathematics, this book brings to light the underlying principles of why many mathematical procedures exist in the first place. I personally use this book when I want to kick my teaching up a notch and really delve into higher order thinking. I have successfully used insights from this book to get my kids to discover why much of math works the way it does. It is great.
One small caveat: this book is not particularly well organized in ready-to-use lesson plan format. Most of the ideas in this book need to be worked with to devlop full-blown lessons. But the ideas are good enough that this is not too hard to do.

Packed with ideas. Sept. 23 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The updated second edition of 101+ Great Ideas for Introducing Key Concepts in Mathematics: A Resource for Secondary school Teachers is a 'must' for any who wish more proven classroom practices. Over a hundred strategies for teaching math are arranged by subject matter, with each listing identifying objectives, materials, and procedures. Both hands-on and computer-based approaches are detailed, with plenty of lessons and examples throughout. This comes form a mathematician/professor and a math pioneer and Nobel Prize recipient: from geometry to algebra, teachers will find it packed with ideas.

Some of the ideas in this book I found a tad confusing but there are quite a few great analogies and tricks to make remembering math concepts easier for students. I reccommend this book for any secondary math teacher.

Clever Ideas May 29 2008
By William T. Cormode - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book had some very clever Ideas. A bit too many using math tiles. I dont really enjoy them but there were enough other idea to balance it out.

Maybe, I have been teaching too long but I did not find many new Ideas for introducing key concepts. I was searching for some concrete examples, not the traditional ones suggested in the book.
