What constitutes good and meaningful math homework? What are the purposes of math homework? How can teachers and school administrators create a culture in which math homework assignments are more inventive and meaningful?
These are just some of the questions that Annette Raphel explores in this important new book. She provides readers with a clear and inspiring picture of what is possible. And through her many examples of math homework assignments, she shows how homework can reinforce skills, prepare students for future classroom discussions, extend their mathematical knowledge, and inspire their creativity.
