Math Essentials, Middle School Level gives middle school math teachers the tools they need to help prepare all types of students (including gifted and learning disabled) for mathematics testing and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards. Math Essentials highlights Dr. Thompson's proven approach by incorporating manipulatives, diagrams, and independent practice. This dynamic book covers thirty key objectives arranged in four sections. Each objective includes three activities (two developmental lessons and one independent practice) and a list of commonly made errors related to the objective. The book's activities are designed to be flexible and can be used as a connected set or taught separately, depending on the learning needs of your students. Most activities and problems also include a worksheet and an answer key and each of the four sections contains a practice test with an answer key.

"A valuable resource for use by inservice teachers of middle school mathematics as well as preservice classrooms. The development lessons, followed by independent practice activities, and the inclusion of possible errors students may make provide the teacher with the tools necessary to help students succeed."
--Ernest Oluwole Pratt, assistant professor, department of education, Mount Union College, Alliance, Ohio "Middle school math teachers will want to take this book home with them every night! It addresses key middle school topics and provides easy-to-use activities which not only support the conceptual understanding of the topics but include links to their assessment."
--Francis (Skip) Fennell, professor of education, McDaniel College, Westminister, Maryland, former NCTM board member, and author, Principles and Standards for School Mathematics
