Implementing the Common Core State Standards through Mathematical Problem Solving: High School

Adding It Up:: Helping Children Learn Mathematics. All young Americans must learn to think mathematically, and they must think mathematically to learn. **Adding It Up** explores how students in pre-K through 8th grade learn mathematics and recommends how teaching, curricula, and teacher education should change to improve mathematics learning during these critical years

Make It Stick: The science of successful learning. Many common study habits and practices routines are counterproductive. Find out what research reports about learning. This should be read by everyone trying to help a child to be success in school, college or career. Drawing on cognitive psychology and other fields, Make It Stick offers techniques for becoming more productive learners, and cautions against study habits and practice routines that turn out to be counterproductive. The book speaks to students, teachers, trainers, athletes, and all those interested in lifelong learning and self-improvement.

Number Theory: A Historical Approach. The natural numbers have been studied for thousands of years, yet most undergraduate textbooks present number theory as a long list of theorems with little mention of how these results were discovered or why they are important. This book emphasizes the historical development of number theory, describing methods, theorems, and proofs in the contexts in which they originated, and providing an accessible introduction to one of the most fascinating subjects in mathematics.

The following book is recommended to give families guidance about what to expect from the system educating their children as well as provide guidance to educators.

Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All describes the actions required to ensure that all students learn to think like mathematicians.
