- Visible Learning for Mathematics, Grades K-12 byCall Number: QA16 .H38 2017ISBN: 9781506362946Publication Date: 2016-09-30Selected as the Michigan Council of Teachers of Mathematics winter book club book! Rich tasks, collaborative work, number talks, problem-based learning, direct instruction...with so many possible approaches, how do we know which ones work the best? In Visible Learning for Mathematics, six acclaimed educators assert it's not about which one--it's about when--and show you how to design high-impact instruction so all students demonstrate more than a year's worth of mathematics learning for a year spent in school. That's a high bar, but with the amazing K-12 framework here, you choose the right approach at the right time, depending upon where learners are within three phases of learning: surface, deep, and transfer. This results in "visible" learning because the effect is tangible. The framework is forged out of current research in mathematics combined with John Hattie's synthesis of more than 15 years of education research involving 300 million students...
