23 Lessons for Problem Solving - aligned to the Common Core!
by Don Balka and Ted Hull
Aligned to the Common Core Standards!
"Visible Thinking Activities" provides teachers with rich opportunities to motivate and engage students in learning mathematics using high-interest problems designed to make students' thinking "visible."
Each of the 23 lessons are aligned to the Common Core Standards and present a problem with multiple variations for a deeper conceptual understanding of the underlying mathematics.
For each problem, a section called "Making Student Thinking Visible" discusses the pitfalls students may encounter, suggestions for teachers as they listen to and observe students, and a variety of questioning strategies.
Appropriate for all middle-grade math teachers, the activities in the book also provide excellent opportunities for mathematics leaders to foster rich conversations with teachers concerning strategies that support student understanding and learning.
Includes digital book with interactive tools. 168 pages.
