As a math teacher you have an extremely demanding job--you must plan and deliver meaningful math instruction, meet the needs of the diverse range of students in your classroom, teach problem-solving and critical thinking skills, integrate technology in student learning, and prepare students for standardized tests. In your "spare" time you must take attendance, grade papers and tests, keep records, maintain order in the classroom, and communicate with parents and administrators.

In the newest addition to the Jossey-Bass Teacher Survival Guide series, Judith, Gary, and Erin Muschla offer a wealth of practical advice that will help both new and seasoned teachers to develop the skills necessary to succeed in this most challenging profession. The Math Teacher's Survival Guide includes

  • Realistic strategies for planning and delivering the most effective math instruction
  • Help for achieving excellence and remaining enthusiastic about teaching
  • Reproducible forms to help you stay on top of everything you need to do, also featured on a CD for your convenience
  • Numerous sources for additional information, web sites, a list of references, and suggested readings

The Math Teacher's Survival Guide is designed to help you manage daily classroom demands while you continue to grow as a passionate professional.
