Standards-based assessment and Instruction

Planning Sheets

Preliminary Planning Sheets accompany the problem-solving tasks published on Exemplars Library.

This resource serves as a teacher's guide for every task, outlining the math concepts and skills that students will need to know as well as alternative strategies they may use to solve a problem. It also helps with lesson preparation and assessing students' work.

View sample planning sheets for Problem Solving for the Common Core, K–5 and Problem Solving for the TEKS, K–5.

Here's What People Are Saying

We are now in our fourth year of using Exemplars. We have a district license and every campus and every math teacher regularly uses an Exemplars problem either for assessment or instruction. These campuses really see the benefits and enjoy watching their students grow mathematically.
