"This book addresses the needs of teachers at every level in their teaching careers, as well as those who support and work with teachers. The processes can be used individually to guide professional learning and teaching, or within almost any professional development structure for facilitating group learning. The CTS process is collegial and scholarly, and truly does bridge the gap between what we know and what we do as educators."
"Mathematics Curriculum Topic Study supports continual professional growth of both content and pedagogical knowledge. The CTS Guides will help teachers focus on the appropriate research. What a time saver this is!"
"Keeley and Rose provide a tool for educators to bring research to bear in practice in a way that supports teacher development of content knowledge, which, in turn, will increase student achievement."
"The book accomplishes the dual purposes of providing thoughtful and careful interpretation and expansion of standards as well as providing a concrete knowledge, interact with local standards, examine coherence, consider learning issues, and improve pedagogy and assessment seems ideal for the contemporary educational environment."
"Provides a framework where educators are encouraged to 'help themselves' by engaging in a cycle of 'inquiry, study, and reflection' to inform their decision making where 'practice' decisions are concerned. For those charged with designing curriculum, there is much of value to consider."
"This book is based on the premise that the mathematics educator is a professional who actively pursues his or her own learning in mathematics and mathematics education. An excellent resource for self-study and the professional development of teachers."
