New Resource! MORE Good Questions for grades 5-8

Friends …

I am immensely pleased to announce the release of my latest volume of problems for intermediate and middle school classrooms.

More Good Questions: A Year of Open Ended Math Problems for Grades 5-8 is exactly that — a series of 220 tasks to inspire thinking, connection-making and reasoning for today’s diverse math classrooms.

In this second volume of problems, students will engage with tasks involving the operations, proportional reasoning, measurement and patterns designed to promote mathematical capacity.  Problems are structured in sets of 5, clustered by topic, strategy or big math idea.  Each task is slightly more complex than the last to allow for conceptual development over the course of a week.  Problem sets can also be used as an intact set of 5, allowing students to choose the problem that is just right for them.  

Intended to be used daily, these problems are designed to promote mathematical curiosity and connection-making. The richness comes from the shared discussion and comparison of strategies.  The more we share our thinking the smarter we all become!

Stay tuned for the Grades 2-4 version coming soon!
