Additional activities and expanded lessons are also included.

The series has three objectives:

    • To illustrate what it means to teach student-centered, problem-based mathematics
    • To serve as a reference for the mathematics content and research-based instructional strategies suggested for pre-kindergarten to grade two, grades three to five, and grades six to eight
    • To present a large collection of high quality tasks and activities that can engage students in the mathematics that is important for them to learn

Volume II is tailored specifically to grades 3-5, allowing teachers to quickly and easily locate information to implement in their classes. The student-centered approach will result in students who are successful in learning mathematics, making these books indispensable for 3-5 classroom teachers!
