More Good Questions, written specifically for secondary mathematics teachers, presents two powerful and universal strategies that teachers can use to differentiate instruction across all math content: Open Questions and Parallel Tasks. Showing teachers how to get started and become expert with these strategies, this book also demonstrates how to use more inclusive learning conversations to promote broader student participation. Strategies and examples are organized around Big Ideas within the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) content strands. With particular emphasis on Algebra, chapters also address Number and Operations, Geometry, Measurement, and Data Analysis and Probability, with examples included for Pre-Calculus.

To help teachers differentiate math instruction with less difficulty and greater success, this resource:

  • Underscores the rationale for differentiating secondary math instruction.
  • Provides specific examples for secondary math content.
  • Describes two easy-to-implement strategies designed to overcome the most common DI problems that teachers encounter.
  • Offers almost 300 questions and tasks that teachers and coaches can adopt immediately, adapt, or use as models to create their own, along with scaffolding and consolidating questions.
  • Includes Teaching Tips sidebars and an organizing template at the end of each chapter to help teachers build new tasks and open questions.
  • Shows how to create a more inclusive classroom learning community with mathematical talk that engages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical activities for grade 7 and up Sept. 15 2010
This book was recommended to me by one of the authors ... so I may be a bit biased. However it was money well spent.
I teach grade 8 math in Ontario and although the title is "Secondary Mathematics" there is almost equal weight given to grade 7 and 8 level material.

Not only is the theory sound, but the authors have compiled many many sample problems that are ready to use with a class. They are even organized by the strands used in the Ontario curriculum.

This will certainly be a part of my teaching this year and in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for high school - Grade 6 and up! Nov. 24 2010
By SarahQuilts - Published on
I love this book!

I will admit to a slight bias - I met one of the authors, Amy Lin because she worked at my school board and she suggested I buy this book. It is money well spent. I really like that there are many many practical suggestions and example questions that you can use in the classroom right away.
The questions are divided by strand, and there are enough that you could use them weekly through an entire year.

I wish that the grade level was indicated in the title. Half of the content is geared towards grades 6-8 (and many of the lower grade questions would be good for high school classes too)

There are two types of activities "open questions" that let students participate in a mathematical discussion at multiple levels, and "parallel tasks" that give student choice, but achieve the same big picture understandings. The authors even included scaffolding questions or prompting questions to help re-start a discussion that has stalled or help a student get started.

Finally, there is a clear index organized by topic that lets you flip straight to the page that has the questions you need for today's lesson.

This book addresses generalities about differentiation and does not include specific lessons that differentiate mathematics. I do not recommend this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Common Core resource! Dec 22 2013
By Emily Y. - Published on
I have used the questions and parallel tasks for math journals. My students love them because they can think outside the box, and there are no wrong answers. I especially appreciate the sample teacher questions that the authors provide to help facilitate class discussion. I would recommend this book to math teachers looking for a way to incorporate more writing and discussion in their class.

Very useful in developing good questions to facilitate student centered talk that is needed to support student competencies for the Math Common Core Curriculum.

This book has lots of applicable ideas for teaching secondary level mathematics. I read the hints when putting together Lesson Plans. I have two copies one for my personal library and one as a reference in the classroom.
