The best price for Steve Leinwand’s book that we found was from Book-Pal.com You may want to shop around for the best price, but this is a source of which you may not be aware. I also asked Steve what the difference is between his two books. He said that Accessible Math is written more for teachers and Sensible Mathematics is for those in leadership roles responsible for overseeing the implementation of the math shifts or strategies.
