Now in its fourth edition,* Making Math Meaningful* continues to provide teachers with insight on how to make mathematics make sense to students. Combining Dr. Marian Small’s wealth of research in Canadian classrooms and practical experience, this resource supports teacher candidates developing a foundation of mathematics and classroom strategies. For teachers digging into mathematical concepts in their own classrooms, it continues to serve as a reference for common student errors, strategies, and additional professional learning resources. Updated to reflect current Canadian curricula across the country, *Making Math Meaningful* helps Canadian educators embrace mathematics and pass on passion and confidence for problem-solving on to their students.

- Activities and ideas for teaching mathematics, along with sample Student Resources showing how students typically answer, in order to help teachers understand what they will see in the classroom
- Examples of Common Errors and Misconceptions for each content area, along with explanations on how to use them
- Teaching Tips presented throughout the text reflect the kind of advice an experienced teacher would offer.
- Chapter Problems engage students mathematically and can be used later in their own math classrooms.
