A few weeks ago I wrote, Five Must Have Literacy Books to Add to Your Shelf and was asked by many educators what do I like for Math. Below are five of my favorite books (in no particular order) to help improve math instruction.

  1. Mathematical Mindsets: Unleashing Students’ Potential through Creative Math, Inspiring Messages and Innovative Teaching by Jo Boaler

  2. Visible Learning for Mathematics, Grades K-12: What Works Best to Optimize Student Learning  by John A. Hattie, Douglas B. Fisher, Nancy Frey 

  3. Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All by NCTM

  4. What’s Math Got to Do with It?: How Teachers and Parents Can Transform Mathematics Learning and Inspire Success by Jo Boaler

  5. Making Number Talks Matter: Developing Mathematical Practices and Deepening Understanding by Cathy Humphreys, Ruth Parker

If there is a math book you think that should be added to this list, please add it in the comments section, as I am always wanting to build my toolkit and book list.
