Overview

Expanded to include connections to Common Core State Standards, as well as National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards, this critically acclaimed book will help everyteacher and coach to meet the challenges of differentiating mathematics instruction in the K–8 classroom. In this bestseller, math education expert Marian Small explains two powerful and universal strategies that teachers can use across all math content: Open Questions and Parallel Tasks. Showing teachers how to get started and become expert with these strategies, Small also demonstrates more inclusive learning conversations that promote broader student participation and mathematical thinking required by CCSS. Specific strategies and examples for each grade band are organized around NCTM content strands: Number and Operations, Geometry, Measurement, Algebra, and Data Analysis and Probability.

“Marian Small’s second edition of Good Questions will be greatly celebrated by this educator. . . . I have shared the book with mathematics teachers across the United States and Canada, and all agree that it is solidly built on best practices in mathematics and is an amazing resource for teachers.”
—From the Foreword by Diane Heacox

The second edition features:


  • Icons that identify concepts outlined in the Common Core State Standards.
  • Many new examples with almost 300 questions and tasks that teachers and coaches can adopt or use as models to create their own.
