We knew that working on a “problem of the day” would benefit our students’ thinking and organizational skills, but we dreaded coming up with new ones each week. So we combed through all the math and science standards and brainstormed as many questions as we could. The result is this book.
We hope you will use these problems daily to reinforce the math concepts you already teach, as well as prepare your students to apply their knowledge by thinking. Each problem follows the same format so the students will quickly learn the routine for problem solving.
