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.
