    1. I skimmed most of this book. The author shared several good math lessons that may or may not include technology. What I gleamed from it is thisy lesson can have technology infused into it. But with the limited time teachers have to accomplish everything we need to pick and choose carefully when we will use technology. As time goes on I think we will become much more comfortable with previous lessons that we have incorporated technology and begin using it it with greater confidence.

    2. Nothing earth shattering here, especially for a teacher that has taught for several years. Although I didn't need all the new teacher advice, I did appreciate some of the content problems they included. Read for continuing ed.

    3. Not as useful for veteran teachers as it would be for newbies. It basically says everything an experienced teacher aware of best practices would already know.
