After spending three days working with my 8th graders on a road trip project, I needed a one-day activity that was fun, interactive, and tied to the 8th grade Oklahoma math standards.

Looking for inspiration, I turned to the Internet where I soon found a link to Dan Meyer's Three-Act Math Tasks via Pinterest. While I have been following his blog for years, I had never actually tried out any of his ideas in a classroom. My students still needed some more practice with proportions, so I decided to go with the Sugar Packets video. Ratio & Proportion Activities.

This is a collection of favorite problems originally created by the members of the TEAM project. Problems of the Month. Problem solving is the cornerstone of doing mathematics.

A problem that you can’t solve in less than a day is usually a problem that is similar to one that you have solved before. But in real life, a problem is a situation that confronts you and you don’t have an idea of where to even start. If we want our students to be problem solvers and mathematically powerful, we must model perseverance and challenge students with non-routine problems. Administrators, teachers and parents should facilitate and support students in the process of attacking and reasoning about the problems.

The solution is not as important as the process of problem solving. The educator or parent should not be impatient with the student’s struggle. The principal should embrace the concept of problem solving and model problem solving leadership, being a facilitator of non-routine problems. What is a performance task in math.

The Common Core State Standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics.

These documents were spliced together and then sliced into grade level standards. From that point on the work focused on refining and revising the grade level standards. The early drafts of the progressions documents no longer correspond to the current state of the standards. It is important to produce up-to-date versions of the progressions documents. They can explain why standards are sequenced the way they are, point out cognitive difficulties and pedagogical solutions, and give more detail on particularly knotty areas of the mathematics. This project is organizing the writing of final versions of the progressions documents for the K–12 Common Core State Standards.
