This printable will promote an understanding of the way our new Common Core Mathematical Processes work. They will encourage students to transfer mathematical skills from the concrete to the abstract, without the emphasis on procedures or "rules" that enable our students from understanding the concepts. It will also encourage students to visualize and construct pictures (arrays, rectangles, etc.) to help them make sense of problem solving.
40 Problems with visual elements to enhance conceptual thinking!!
