Association of Teachers of Mathematics in Maine (ATOMIM)

I was at a meeting today where the following book was discussed.  It looks like a well done text on mathematics and pedagogy.  ATOMIM is doing an online book study, it began last week, but I was told today others could join.  If we have a couple members from the AOS interested, let me know and I will purchase an institutional membership
