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!
