"You have to read this book. Now. As a country it's time to ask ourselves, "How do we make mathematics accessible to all learners?" I have seen even the most reluctant teachers come alive after reading Accessible Mathematics. Leinwand's strategies are accessible (that word again) to those teachers. As a colleague said, reading it is 'life changing.'"
--Wylie Beatty, Mathematics Instructional Coach, Bethel School District, WA
"Steven Leinwand's slim volume contains a wealth of practical information packaged in small, doable increments. As a veteran mathematics teacher, I am grateful for Leinwand's vision of what we should see in an effective mathematics classroom as well as his suggestions for getting there."
--Cathleen M. Alexander, American River College in Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School
"You must read this! Steve Leinwand has spent most of his career asking why and why not! As we consider issues that include common curricular standards, collaborative assessments, intervention, early access to algebra and other issues, Accessible Mathematics will cause you to think hard about the mathematics children learn and you may teach. Read this. Question it, but more importantly think about how this book will impact your work in mathematics education."
--Skip Fennell, McDaniels College Professor and past president of NCTM
"In a time of data-driven instruction, this book is a breath of fresh air. In just sixty-six easy-to-read and notate pages, the book puts forth time-honored strategies that really work."
