Some of My Publications

Look at my résumé for a more complete list.

**A book on math pedagogy**, co-authored with Robin Pemantle, featuring instructional ideas based on student intellectual engagement and skilled teacher leadership. We offer a philosophical framework and practical suggestions on just about every aspect of the job: problem solving, manipulatives, technology, lesson planning, group work, classroom discussion, how to reach the full range of students, and so on.*There Is No One Way to Teach Math:*

Actionable Ideas for Grades 6-12.**On this site:**- About Teaching
