"Too often, middle school and high school teachers say, 'These students are lacking number sense.' These books will help secondary teachers with good pedagogy to help build number sense in a creative way. Eric Milou and John SanGiovanni have created short routines that are teacher-friendly, with lots of examples, and easy to adapt to each teacher's needs. These are the books that secondary teachers have been waiting for to help engage students in building number sense." -- Pamela J. Dombrowski, Secondary Math Specialist
"Thank you, Eric and John, for creating this practical resource that supports and guides high school mathematics teachers in redesigning beginnings of mathematics lessons to capture attention and engage ALL students in mathematical reasoning, mental mathematics, and discourse in order to develop deeper understandings of number and improve overall mathematics learning. This book is a necessary resource for EVERY high school mathematics teacher!" -- Becky Walker
"'Routines' in the high school classrooms are needed to help transform instructional practices that start classes with meaningful engagement opportunities and connect to students' previous learned practices from elementary and middle school mathematics classrooms." -- John W. Staley
"Don't just manipulate symbols, help students ponder about what the symbols mean. This book provides effective ways of helping students stretch the limits of their thinking and develop a deeper understanding of mathematics. It can really help in achieving your primary goal-the development of developing comfortable and confident problem solvers!" -- Jim Rubillo
