The school administrators at PS 54 had a vision to create a math laboratory based on the eight Standards of Mathematical Practice. The idea was to create a setting in which students could focus on multi-step problem solving.
Our latest K–5 material, Problem Solving for TEKS, offers teachers supplemental performance tasks to develop their students’ problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. By organizing the new TEKS into rich Units of Study, this resource is designed to assist Texas educators in teaching a focused mathematics curriculum.
Teaching STEM proved to be very time consuming last year and I love the [Exemplars] sample on breathing because the student gets to investigate the real-life situation instead of just watching!!
This is an excellent resource! Thanks for making it available. Exemplars are a wonderful tool for our highly capable math students. They encourage them to show their work, explain their thinking and label their answers.
