Tess loves math because it's the one subject she can trust—there's always just one right answer, and it never changes. But then she starts algebra and is introduced to those pesky and mysterious variables, which seem to be everywhere in eighth grade. When even your friends and parents can be variables, how in the world do you find out the right answers to the really important questions, like what to do about a boy you like or whom to tell when someone's done something really bad? Will Tess's life ever stop changing long enough for her to figure it all out?

Eighth grade, like algebra, has become pretty complicated for Tess. For one thing, there are the patterns she's noticing everywhere—like how charming-on-the-outside Richard keeps playing scary pranks on her, and how annoying copycat Lynn always has to follow what everyone else is doing. Then there's the pattern of graffiti that keeps appearing on the wall by her school—could those numbers be a code meant for Tess? Is it up to her to find out what they mean? And most importantly, if Damien keeps up with his pattern of waiting for her after school, does it mean he likes her? Or is that just a coincidental system? Tess looks for formulas to help her figure it all out, but she's afraid there may be none. Sometimes you have to make up your own solutions. Sometimes, you just have to risk it.

To date, a vast majority of classrooms continue to fall short in the implementation and direction of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM), in part because most of these classrooms continue to use traditional methods for teaching mathematics. That is about to change, and Mathematics in the K-8 Classroom and Library shows you how it's done. After an introduction to the NCTM's principles and process standards, each remaining chapter is devoted to an NCTM content standard. The book offers engaging, research-based strategies and booklists of specific titles that, together, can be used to increase student achievement. The strategies suggested here provide a hands-on, student-centered focus that allows students to make connections with prior learning, personal experiences, and good books. Both the recommended children's books and the activities will appeal even to reluctant readers and students for whom mathematics might be a challenge. Each chapter includes an extensive, annotated list of texts, dozens of hands-on activities, handouts, and writing prompts.
