Standards-based assessment and Instruction

Math Enrichment

Exemplars

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

In a number of recent studies comparing approaches to teaching mathematics in countries around the world, a list of 'best practices principles' have been identified. The Exemplars math program reflects the most important of these 'best practices principles,' and offers teachers a curriculum for teaching mathematics and assessing mathematical expertise from a contextual, problem focused point of view. The program is terrific.
