Problem solving is the emphasis as students delve into diverse activities from all five NCTM content standards. Empower your students to build new mathematical knowledge, solve problems in context, apply and adapt appropriate strategies, and reflect on their thinking while reinforcing mathematical skills. Hands-on activities in a variety of question formats make the mathematics accessible to all learning types. Student-created problems help motivate students and communication prompts enhance mathematical speech and writing. Includes skill checks, cumulative tests, assessment guidelines, and vocabulary cards.
