Brandenburg's Recommended Math Books (1 May 2015)
Looking for more good reads? Check out Guy Brandenburg's book list, organized into math and science sub-topics, and annotated with capsule reviews and reading level ratings. During his 30+ years of teaching math in the public schools of Washington, DC, Brandenburg used to assign his 8th and 9th grade algebra and geometry students to read two of these books each year, and then write reports on them.

Reminder: apply by Saturday, 31 January, to attend the 2015 Teacher Leadership Program (TLP) of IAS/PCMI, the Park City Mathematics Institute (PCMI). Through an intense mathematical experience, focused reflection on the practice of teaching, and leadership development around standards such as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) or the Texas TEKS, teachers who participate in the TLP summer gain perspective about the work of teaching and develop their potential for contributing in meaningful ways to the field.
