Mathematical Literacy in the Middle and High School Grades free pdf Mathematical Literacy in the Middle and High School Grades gives future and current middle and high school classroom teachers the concepts and practical, hands-on suggestions, activities, lesson plans, skills, and tools they need to enhance and enrich their students' mathematics learning. From its opening overview of the theory behind a variety of new strategies for teaching math to its everyday, concrete assistance, the book helps teachers find and use engrossing ways to introduce math concepts through stories, using hands-on activities to reinforce the concepts. Included are ready-to-use activities busy teachers can incorporate "as is" or adapt to fit their particular classrooms and their students' individual needs.

About Faith Wallace

Faith H. Wallace, Ph.D., is a Professor of Literacy who specializes in bringing reading into the non-literature classroom. She is the author of a book on reading mathematics, and she has written a number of national peer-reviewed papers and presented at local, state, regional, and national conferences. A reading specialist, she has worked extensively with the University System of Georgia's Reading Consortium, helping support the diverse reading needs of Georgia's students. This has given her a wide-ranging knowledge of the professional development of reading teachers, as well as an understanding of reading in the content areas. Dr. Wallace has a particular research interest in reading in the mathematics classroom. Mary Anna Evans is a licensed professional engineer, an experienced educator, and the award-winning author of the Faye Longchamp archaeological mysteries: Artifacts, Relics, Effigies, Findings, Floodgates, Strangers, and Plunder. Her education in physics and engineering, as well as her passion for reading and writing, has resulted in a dual career as a novelist who also writes on math and science education. When a cell phone drops from a tall tower in one of her books, yet is still functional afterward, the physics explaining why this is possible is feathered into the narrative accurately, yet so gently that the explanation reads as story, not as instruction. Math educators have recognized this attention to detail as an opportunity to bring reading materials that students enjoy, like mystery fiction, into the mathematics classroom. Ms. Evans speaks frequently on math and science literacy to both students and educators.
