"As a student I always ask the question, Why? Why is this assignment important, how will it benefit me, and how do I successfully complete it? The guided presentation and templates demonstrated in the book help me to understand the purpose of a project and eliminate confusion. I know exactly what to research and how to complete the study. If more teachers used this method it would help students achieve a good grade more efficiently. I need to be challenged and prepared for college level work, and this method will help me reach that goal."

"THIS is what I've been waitng for. With +1 Pedagogy, Dr. Warren lays out so clearly a framework for teaching in the 21st century classroom. It is an elevated level of teaching and learning to which I aspire as a teacher, and it is exactly how I want my own children to learn."

Adreanna Clark, Elementary School Teacher

"An effective mathematics program requires students to collaboratively
engage in making sense and reasoning about meaningful mathematics
through real world contexts. Although the enormous challenge of
connecting mathematics to authentic 21st century experiences can become a
reality through project-based learning, many math teachers have yet to
embrace this approach because it can be difficult to implement. Dr.
Warren’s book on +1 Pedagogy provides an invaluable framework and
practical resources that address PBL management and organization,
technology implementation, and the Mathematical Practices through
incorporating high cognitively demanding tasks. Mathematics teachers and
leaders looking to achieve effective and relevant math instruction should
make +1 Pedagogy a key part of their daily planning."
