Rethinking Mathematics offers teaching ideas, lesson plans, and reflections by practitioners and mathematics educators. This is real-world math—math that helps students analyze social problems as they gain essential academic skills. 

“An amazing collection of articles and lesson plans that infuse mathematics with a relevancy that will excite students. Use this as a supplement to your math class and you might no longer hear, ‘Why do we have to learn this? ’ A must-have book not only for math teachers but for all teachers concerned with equity and social justice.”

The rollout of the #CommonCore has seemed more like a marketing campaign than an educational plan. A look at the funders, origins, and uses of the new standards shows why the pushback is building.

Our winter issue is out! Hailed as the next great reform, the Common Core State Standards are being implemented at breakneck speed in districts across the United States. But behind the spin, is the Common Core the next step in the corporate agenda?
