Twenty Years Before the Blackboard by Michael Stueben with Diane Sandford

Anyone who teaches mathematics at any level, can profit by reading this book. Its humor and breezy presentation make the book good reading-and fun reading-for any person with some interest in math. --AAAS Science Books and Films

A perfect gift for the new teacher. . . or for anyone interested in the teaching of mathematics. This book is the legacy of 20 years of mathematics teaching. During this time, the author searched for motivation techniques, mnemonics, insightful proofs, and serious applications of humor to aid his teaching. The result is this book: part philosophy, part humor, and part biography. Readers will be amused and enlightened on every page. Mr. Stueben shows how he has used humor and wordplay to motivate his students. The book is filled with wonderful problems and proofs, as well as the author's insights about how to approach teaching problem solving to high school students. Sections of the book also treat the use of calculators and computers in the classroom. A section on mnemonics shows how teachers can use memory aids to help their students learn and retain material. Although Mr. Stueben taught at the high school level, his book is an excellent "methods" book for mathematics teachers at all levels.
