Math for Humans is both a theory and methods resource in its first 90 pages and an activity resource with full teacher support (a kind of hands-on teacher training) in its last 150 pages. Its vocabulary is broad and its techniques more inclusive of all learners than other references. It goes ell to "color up" other teaching material. Its over 90 reproducible activities tap eight of the intelligences of students regularly, widely and innovatively, communicating the point that math can contain a kaleidoscope of appeals to a wide variety of mental processing. The two parts of the book afford the widest learning options for teachers: read up on theory and resources or plunge in and learn "in the field" while using the activities. At the end is a teacher resource list, including important resource websites. The activities are either real-life oriented or at least they have a math theory "payoff," so they don't seem trivial or irrelevant. There are easy ways to extend the activities up and down in challenge; they are graphically interesting; they cluster in fourteen integrated topical groups; and they have in-depth teacher support that provides a type of inservice training as the activities are used.
