Using the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics With Gifted and Advanced Learners provides teachers and administrators examples and strategies to implement the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) with advanced learners at all stages of development in K–12 schools. The book describes—and demonstrates with specific examples from the CCSS—what effective differentiated activities in mathematics look like for top learners. It shares how educators can provide rigor within the new standards to allow students to demonstrate higher level thinking, reasoning, problem solving, passion, and inventiveness in mathematics. By doing so, students will develop the skills, habits of mind, and attitudes toward learning needed to reach high levels of competency and creative production in mathematics fields.

Excellent Resource
This book provides great sample activities that the teacher could use to enhance her curriculum.  An example of this can be found on page 22 where the page starts off with: Subject: Math Learning Progressions: Patterns.  Followed by: Domains: Operations and Algebraic Thinking (3rd & 5th); Functions (8th & High School).  Then concrete examples are broken down for 3rd, 5th, 8th, and high school grades.  
Also included is a possible timeline for implementing the CCSS locally.  It is broken down into three columns: Task, Person(s) Responsible, and When.  In the first row, the Task is: Know and understand the CCSS for Mathematics.  Under Person(s) Responsible: All school personnel.  Under When: August-September.  This goes on until you get to July and have to start over.  There are also resources to help implement CCSS.
This book is an excellent resource for teachers and administrators who work with gifted and advanced learners.

Review by: Karen Adamson, Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School - November 1, 2013
In general, the content was both accurate and informative. Given the transition currently taking place across the nation to CCSSM, this book would make an excellent supplemental resource for any teacher. The strategies and activities presented would be a great addition to any classroom.
