Implementing the Common Core State Standards through Mathematical Problem Solving, Grades 6-8
Connect the Process of Problem Solving with the Content of the Common Core Mathematics educators have long worked to help students to develop problem-solving skills. More recently, they have sought to provide students with the knowledge in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This volume is the third in a series from NCTM that equips classroom teachers with targeted, highly effective problems for achieving both goals at once. For every mathematics educator, the books in this series will illuminate a crucial link between problem solving and the Common Core State Standards.

Using Classroom Assessment to Improve Student Learning: Math Problems Aligned with NCTM and Common Core State Standards
Linking assessment to everday classroom instruction requires a shift in both thinking and practice. For many, the term assessment simply means grade. Using Classroom Assessment to Improve Student Learning shows how teachers can move away from using tests, letter or numerical grades, or passing or failing as evidence of student learning to creating a rich classroom environment that is conducive to effective formative assessment.

Fibonacci Stays Here Poster
Fibonacci stays here
is also referred to as the golden section, the golden mean, the golden proportion, the extreme and mean ratio, and the divine proportion. It has been used to ensure beauty and balance in art, architecture, music and design for centuries. THE GOLDEN RATIO
Here, the ubiquitous Fibonacci sequence shows up where it is least expected: in the logo of a Chicago hotel. Your students can discover how to construct and measure a golden rectangle, determine where the golden ratio appears in the pentagon formed by a 5-pointed starfish, and apply graphs of polar equations.
