Standards-based assessment and Instruction

Math Enrichment


Exemplars authentic, problem-solving tasks are rich supplements for use in Title I programs, Gifted and Talented programs and in the traditional classroom.

Material can also be used for intervention and with after school tutoring programs.

Our real-world, performance tasks are differentiated at three levels and designed to capture students' interests.

Rubrics and anchor papers (hallmarks of Exemplars) assist teachers in identifying students' specific strengths and areas to be improved in the problem-solving process. Doing so, enables teachers to help students reach higher levels of thinking and gain greater mathematical understanding.

Tasks emphasize NCTM process standards and may be used to assess student performance, to enhance instruction or as portfolio pieces. In addition, teachers may use Exemplars standards-based tasks:

  • To challenge Gifted and Talented students
  • To engage Title I students and closely evaluate mathematical understanding
  • To enhance other disciplinary areas
  • To help students become strong self- and peer-assessors
  • As a problem of the week or for homework
  • For early finishers
  • To share with parents at conferences

Our teacher-friendly tasks are designed to support both the Common Core and Citywide instructional expectations. GO Math! alignments are also available.

Here's What People Are Saying

I work as a math/science facilitator going into elementary classrooms across the district with the main emphasis being problem solving strategies and advanced thinking questions -- A colleague shared a few sample Exemplars -- they have been amazing to use with kids. Teachers want to know where the ideas are coming from so they can continue along this same line. Great product!
