Here's What People Are Saying

I have really enjoyed using Exemplars. Teaching students how to become better problem solvers has been easier and the students have a more concrete format in which to follow. The rubric is very user friendly. It has really allowed my high-achievers to reach a new level. Problem solving is usually a weakness for them, because they only want to get the right answer... this has opened their eyes to a new way to express themselves mathematically.
