Matthew does a fantastic job of challenging our thinking with regards to math education! As someone with a great deal of mathematical knowledge, he does a superb job of asking great questions allowing the reader to pause, reflect and think about his or her own classroom. When I think about math education, Matthew continues to prove to be the 'go-to' guy for positive discourse with regards to best practice and pedagogy! -- Brian Aspinall, edtech innovator, and author of Codebreaker
Matthew Oldridge has deftly marinated his mathematics and English background to create one savory and timely book to finally address where problem-solving lies in math education-woven inextricably in the lifeblood of a math classroom. The preposition "through" is the most critical word in the title of this book, as rightfully suggests that problem-solving is the door, window, and infrastructure to building buoyant and beautiful math classrooms. Oldridge invites you to see problem-solving as being baked into classrooms, replete with figurative aromas of chocolate chip cookies and cinnamon buns. That is how appetizing mathematics can be if the problems that we select become embedded portals to the intrinsic awe, joy, and wonder that patiently awaits our students-and us! Storytelling is the most powerful way to teach, and Oldridge has spun a charming yarn to reconsider how and where we see the essence of mathematics-problem solving. -- Sunil Singh, Math Specialist, www.Scolab.com; author,"Pi of Life: The Hidden Happiness of Mathematics" (2017)
