Marilyn is one of the leading exponents of teaching math through exploration and problem solving - rather than telling she helps students construct the mathematics learning through exploration -
her lessons are worthwhile for teachers and parents- they are clear
and easy to follow

Burns knows her math!
Not only has she taught it, she can write about how to teach it, too. Lots of helpful examples, samples, practice work, etc.
