This book distills an array of instructional tools, lesson planning templates, and best-practice strategies along with hands-on student activities into one easy-to-use resource. In clear and simple language, the authors explain how to use performance criteria and assessments to design effective, standards-based lessons that build essential mathematical problem-solving skills as well as in-depth understanding of mathematical concepts. The book features extensive sample lessons on reproducible worksheets focusing on patterns, computation, fractions, and measurement, all broken down by grade level.
