What could you use to help you teach?

I am a mathematics education author. I have written for several textbook
publishers (Macmillan/McGraw-Hill, ScottForesman/Addison Weseley, Silver
Burdett, and Harcourt Brace), and for a few educational resource
companies, too (Frank Schaffer, Carson Dellosa, and Creative Teaching
Press). Some of you may recognize my name from my book give away posts. I
often receive several copies of my book from the publisher and give them
away to teachers and home schoolers.

I, too, have taught and I have written materials that I would have loved
to use as a teacher. But my perspective is not the only one. I know how
tough it is to get some concepts across to students and meet all the other
objectives pushed on you. I want to make it easier for teachers. I know I
could have used the help myself. But in order to do that, I need to know
what you need.

What type of resources have you been looking for lately and haven't been
able to find?

What would you like your students' textbook to provide that it doesn't?

If you had the time to create your own materials for your students, what
would they be like?

Thank you for taking the time to read my post and respond. If I use your
idea either to design a book or within a book I will send you a copy of
the book.

Thanks again!
