Pinpoint and reverse math misconceptions with laser-like accuracy

Quickly and reliably uncover common math misconceptions in Grades 6-8 with these convenient and easy-to-implement diagnostic tools! Bestselling authors Cheryl Tobey and Carolyn Arline provide 25 new assessment probes that pinpoint subconcepts within the new Common Core Standards for Mathematics to promote deep learning and expert math instruction--while learning is already underway.

Completely CCSM aligned, these grade-specific probes eliminate the guesswork and help teachers:

  • Systematically address conceptual and procedural mistakes
  • Help students better understand areas of struggle
  • Plan targeted instruction that covers Grades 6-8 CCSM mathematical processes and proficiencies
