Empower mathematics educators and learners to meet and exceed high expectations!

School leaders who are responsible for improving mathematics achievement face tremendous challenges. Written by three noted mathematics educators, this book helps leaders implement a high-quality mathematics program, regardless of the status of their current programs or the availability of resources.

A Guide to Mathematics Leadership presents a process-based approach to improving mathematics instruction based on five principles identified by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)—equity, curriculum, teaching, learning, and assessment—and four leadership principles from the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM)—equity leadership, teaching and learning leadership, curriculum leadership, and assessment leadership. These principles are applied during the program improvement cycle, which includes:

  • Articulating the curriculum
  • Implementing the curriculum
  • Incorporating effective instructional strategies
  • Providing timely and targeted feedback
  • Establishing professional learning communities
  • Fostering professional development

Filled with practical advice, tips, tools, and resources for each stage of the process, this book guides readers in the next steps to excellence in mathematics instruction and learning.
