I've been extremely excited by my reading of the book Elementary and Middle School Mathematics: Teaching Developmentally by Johan A. Van de Walle et al.

Does anyone know of similar books (or other references) for high school mathematics (grade 9-12), by which I mean either of the following:

  • books that explain in detail how to set up a problem-based classroom in grade 9-12,
  • books that provide a perspective of the mathematical content taught at grade 9-12 together with how teenagers best learn that content.

PS: This question is a more specific version of A good book for Juniors/senior/high school similar to VanDeWalle middle school? which has not been answered.

This is not exactly what you're asking for, but it might come close: What's Happening in Math Class?, edited by Deborah Schifter. This is volume 1, and there is a volume 2.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for your suggestion! It looks interesting but it's not quite what I'm looking for indeed. $\endgroup$
