Students pursue problems they’re curious about, not problems they’re told to solve.

Creating a math classroom filled with confident problem solvers starts by introducing challenges discovered in the real world, not by presenting a sequence of prescribed problems, says Gerald Aungst.

In this groundbreaking book, he offers a thoughtful approach for instilling a culture of learning in your classroom through five powerful, yet straightforward principles: Conjecture, Collaboration, Communication, Chaos, and Celebration.

Aungst shows you how to:

  • Embrace collaboration and purposeful chaos to help students engage in productive struggle, using non-routine and unsolved problems
  • Put each chapter’s principles into practice through a variety of strategies, activities, and by incorporating technology tools
  • Introduce substantive, lasting cultural changes in your classroom through a manageable, gradual shift in processes and behaviors

Five Principles of the Modern Mathematics Classroom offers new ideas for inspiring math students by building a more engaging and collaborative learning environment.
