Great tasks, problems and thinking. Anything and everything on the NRich website. https://nrich.maths.org
Susan Lamon writes everything you need to know and understand about Fractions. If you plan to teach Junior high I highly recommend because it is filled with examples and tasks. Again I am willing to lend out mine. Very practical and hands on.
Despite its age this article by JJ Greenwood is still so highly relevant. Again it was on the EDEL 316 site so you may have read it . Read it again. He really helps to make sense of process as a part of the learning and how you might include students in the assessment of their own understanding. JJ Greenwood
This article is written by a colleague and friend in Australia. Chris is from the Torres Islands and the only person in his culture to obtain a PhD in mathematics. His life’s passion is to make mathematics accessible to his culture. Timely and relevant, a first nation’s perspective on learning mathematics. Maths as storytelling
George Gadanadis is a friend and colleague at Western University. He has a number of passions one of which involves the Arts, poetry and story in math. The math is deep and rich and for young children. His materials and website are quite phenomenal. http://researchideas.ca/mathperformance.html
George’s work continues to evolve and he is now interested in computational thinking a hot topic that many are reducing to the trendy word “coding” and boxing up for more surface level trite. If you are curious take a look and listen http://imaginethis.ca/
