Dr. David A. Sousa is an international consultant in educational neuroscience and author of seven books that suggest ways that educators and parents can translate current brain research into strategies for improving learning. A member of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society, he has conducted workshops in hundreds of school districts on brain research, instructional skills, and science education at the Pre-K to 12 and university levels. He has made presentations to more than 100,000 educators at national conventions of educational organizations and to regional and local school districts across the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.

Dr. Sousa has a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Massachusetts State College at Bridgewater, a Master of Arts in Teaching degree in science from Harvard University, and a doctorate from Rutgers University. His teaching experience covers all levels. He has taught senior high school science, served as a K-12 director of science, a supervisor of instruction, and a district superintendent in New Jersey schools. He has been an adjunct professor of education at Seton Hall University and a visiting lecturer at Rutgers University.

Prior to his career in New Jersey, Dr. Sousa taught at the American School of Paris (France), and served for five years as a Foreign Service Officer and science advisor at the USA diplomatic missions in Geneva (Switzerland) and Vienna (Austria).

Dr. Sousa has edited science books and published dozens of articles in leading journals on staff development, science education, and educational research. His seven popular books for educators, all published by Corwin Press, include: How the Brain Learns, third edition; How the Special Needs Brain Learns, second edition; How the Gifted Brain Learns; How the Brain Learns to Read; How the Brain Influences Behavior; and How the Brain Learns Mathematics, which was selected by the Independent Publishers’ Association as one of the best professional development books of 2008. The Leadership Brain, suggests ways for educators to lead today’s schools more effectively. His books have been published in French, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic and several other languages.

Rosamaria Murillo

"A handy tool for teachers! The activities are clearly laid out with directions that will allow any teacher to implement academically rigorous math activities with our youngest students. It is wonderful to see a book dedicated to promoting strong number sense activities that are brain compatible. The activities presented in this book are fun and engaging for young students. This alternative method of developing number sense is likely to reach more students by focusing on different strategies that will engage the entire brain."

Susan Schipper

"This book gives educators the tools necessary to provide students with effective and enjoyable learning experiences. The author offers detailed yet easily applicable lessons that will benefit both teacher and students. Sousa effectively explains the importance of brain-based learning tasks and their role in the area of mathematics. Although the activities in this book are designed to be used with the brain-compatible lesson plan format, the teacher has the ability to choose the areas that best suit his or her classroom style. This book also connects the NCTM standards to each lesson. For the past 25 years, I have taught both kindergarten and first grade. I found Sousa’s book an effective as well as an enjoyable means of putting brain-compatible math into practice!"
