Annotation: Multiply math mastery and interest with these inspired teaching tactics! Invigorate instruction and engage students with this treasure trove of "Great Ideas" compiled by two of the greatest minds in mathematics. From commonly taught topics in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and statistics, to more advanced explorations into indirect proofs, binomial theorem, irrationality, relativity, and more, this guide outlines concepts and techniques that will inspire veteran and new educators alike. This updated second edition offers more proven practices for bringing math concepts to life in the classroom, including: 114 innovative strategies organized by subject area User-friendly content identifying "objective," "materials," and "procedure" for each technique A range of teaching models, including hands-on and computer-based methods Specific and straightforward examples with step-by-step lessons

Written by two distinguished leaders in the field-mathematician, author, professor, university dean, and popular commentator Alfred S. Posamentier, along with mathematical pioneer and Nobel Prize recipient Herbert A. Hauptman-this guide brings a refreshing perspective to secondary math instruction to spark renewed interest and success among students and teachers.
