Here's What People Are Saying

The new Exemplars Problem Solving for Common Core is a welcome addition to the Exemplars' offerings. School districts currently searching for reliable problems to enact the spirit and content of Common Core at each grade will be delighted with this resource ... This can help teachers not only better understand the math of context -- rich problems but should also help them anticipate varied student outcomes for evaluation.
