New state standards for assessment and testing have forced math teachers to rethink their lesson plans. Knowing basic computation and operation skills is no longer sufficient. In order to achieve mathematical literacy, students must now demonstrate their understanding of content and concepts and their mastery of problem-solving skills. 

In Brain Compatible Mathematics, author Diane Ronis draws from the theories of multiple intelligences and brain-compatible teaching and learning to offer innovative strategies for teaching math that are aligned with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' principles and standards of school mathematics as well as CCSS for math. 

The book makes it easy for teachers to adopt a brain-compatible, project-unit approach to mathematics. Each chapter introduces key concepts and topical information, followed by detailed, ready-to-use project units designed for specific grade levels. These hands-on project units include instructional outlines, evaluations, rubrics for teachers, and student reflection guides, making them easy to implement.  

The chapters are broken down as follows:

  • Chapter 1: Performance-Based Learning Assessment
  • Chapter 2: The Six Pillars of Performance Task Development
  • Chapter 3:Multiple Intelligences and Brain-Compatible Learning
  • Chapter 4: Performance-Based Instructional Strategies
  • Chapter 5: Problem-Solving Strategies
  • Chapter 6: Teaching and Assessing with the Rubric
  • Chapter 7: Teaching and Assessing with the Portfolio 

This updated second edition of Brain Compatible Mathematics incorporates recent research in neuroscience and the latest contributions to the multidisciplinary field of brain-based learning. Teachers will take away from this book a clear understanding of the approach of brain-compatible teaching and learning, along with a vast toolkit of research-based instructional strategies that help students absorb knowledge instead of struggling with learning.
