Product Description

By Carol Parke, Suzanne Lane, Edward Silver, Maria Magone

By Carole S. Parke, Suzanne Lane, Edward A. Silver, and Maria E. Magone

Using tasks that require students to think deeply about problem situations and communicate their mathematical understanding helps teachers determine students' levels of proficiency and gain insight into students' mathematical thinking. This book and its companion CD include sixteen mathematics tasks that are appropriate for grades 4 through 8 and can be used for instruction and assessment purposes. Descriptions of six activities illustrating various uses of the tasks and materials are also included.
