"Parallel Curriculum Units for Math, Grades 6-12 is a refreshing resource that gets to the heart of what quality math instruction should look like. The lessons included in this book provide teachers with an explicit path to guide students in their understanding of the 'whole concept'. The authors have carefully crafted pre-assessments, post-assessments and rubrics that help help teachers create the situations for students to make vital connections between the mathematics they are learning and the world in which they live."

"This book is a great resource for teachers looking for ways to improve their practice and existing curriculum. Teachers can easily fall into the trap of doing the same thing year after year, but this book gives us all the opportunity to reexamine our course curriculum and find more effective ways of delivering the material to our students. This book makes outstanding connections between content topics and encourages higher level thinking."
Scott Currier, Math Teacher
Belmont High School, NH
