Total Motivation Math takes the teacher from the very start to the very end. It has a strong hook piece on getting started with insight on ‘How can I begin a lesson?’ Then it gives the actual lesson, and then how to assess. But then the crucial piece is the intervention piece, giving really good ideas on ‘How do I reteach this or model this for the student that didn’t understand it the first time?’ It tells you how to teach the skill, and I love that about the book.
Motivation Math has dramatically improved our Math scores this year! We've gone from 60% to 95%—a 30% increase in just one year! I can attribute this improvement to Motivation Math, specifically the strong rigor. This product definitely gets the students to think to a higher level, and thus understand the concepts. We will also be looking at ordering lower grades to start earlier.
Used your Motivation Math and our grade 5 scores went from 49% passage to 90% this year!
I look for resources to help my students build comprehension, and Mentoring Minds is the best for higher level questioning with multi-steps. Especially with the TEKS changing this past year for 8th grade, it got hard for my students, but they did amazing. We’ve already gotten a ‘thank you’ from the high school algebra teachers, that our students were well prepared.
