By announcing the book, Times 10 Publications highlights common challenges that educators may face when teaching math. Math is typically a detested subject; over 50% of students report disliking math, and 37% of students tend to struggle with it academically. This is linked to the fact that many students find math dull or difficult to grasp due to its rigid nature.

In Hacking Mathematics, experienced math teacher, speaker, and author Denis Sheeran aims to help teachers dismantle the negative mindsets that students may hold towards math. He offers readers many unconventional teaching methods to make math a more engaging subject. Accompanying each “hack” are real-world examples of how the strategy was successfully implemented.

Sheeran notes that encouraging students to talk to each other will spur them to discuss solutions, ideas, and questions. He says that teachers should also provide feedback where possible and replace the oft-used “show your work” with “explain your thinking” in math assignments. This will allow students to outline their thought process without needing to reference formulas. By promoting active discussion and decreasing the need for memorization, teachers will be able to identify areas of struggle while helping their students connect with the material.

Like all Times 10 Publications books, Hacking Mathematics was written with the intention of helping busy teachers overcome common challenges with practical, concrete solutions that have a basis in actual classrooms. The book is part of a series that covers strategies to make reading, writing, and math more enjoyable for students to learn.
