Format: Paperback
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.

Not just for high school - Grade 6 and up! Nov. 24 2010
By SarahQuilts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

There are NO questions. March 22 2013

This book addresses generalities about differentiation and does not include specific lessons that differentiate mathematics. I do not recommend this book.
Great Common Core resource! Dec 22 2013
By Emily Y. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.
Great Book! Jan. 8 2013

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.
