ISBN: 9781493885152
Item: 100444E

Clothesline Math: The Master Number Sense Maker lays the theoretical groundwork for intentionally teaching number sense at all grade levels. Written by Chris Shore, this essential resource empowers math teachers with detailed instructions on implementing Clothesline Math in both elementary and secondary classrooms. It includes tips and strategies for facilitating the mathematical discourse that naturally ensues among students when Clothesline Math is implemented in the classroom. This strategy book includes everything that teachers need to prepare, implement, and assess Clothesline Math lessons. At the elementary level, the lessons cover essential math concepts such as whole numbers, place value, fractions, order of operations, algebraic reasoning, variables, expressions, and one-step and two-step equations. At the secondary level, concepts include exponents, roots, integers, absolute value, variables, multi-step equations, inequalities, slope, geometry, algebra, functions, statistics, trigonometry, and pre-calculus. Differentiate instruction by implementing Clothesline Math, a strategy that inherently supports the needs of diverse learners. Aligned to state and national standards, this helpful book will get students excited about math as they engage in meaningful mathematical discourse and learn to think and speak like mathematicians.

Just in time! We've identified two areas for growth for the upcoming year: #1 Improving Number Sense and #2 Improving Algebra I outcomes. This book will build upon what we've done in the lower grades with number lines and help us take these concepts all the way through our Algebra courses. Thank you TCM and Chris Shore!!!

I really appreciate the attention paid to the specific ways this strategy can build number sense in students of all grade levels. The teacher student interchanges clarify the math discourse that needs to happen more often in our math classrooms. The vignettes do a great job clarifying how the clothesline strategy can be used to surface student thoughts behind their actions. Thank you to the author for being such a leader in the mission to make our math classrooms thought filled centers.
