Mathematics Tasks for the Thinking Classroom, Grades K-5

$38.95

Where do you find and use good math tasks that will make your students think?

In Peter Liljedahl and Maegan Giroux’s new book, Math Tasks for the Thinking Classroom, Grade K-5. But this book is so much more than simply a collection of good thinking tasks. The book delves deeper into the implementation of the 14 practices from Peter’s blockbuster book Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics by revisiting and updating the practices with the newest research, and focusing on the practice through the lens of tasks. Across the 20 noncurricular tasks and 30 curricular tasks used as models, this book:

  • Helps you choose tasks to fit your particular math standards, goals, and the competencies you want your students to build
  • Walks you through all the steps and scripts to launch, facilitate, and consolidate each task
  • Shares examples of possible student solutions along with hints you might offer to help their thinking along
  • Offers tasks for consolidation, example notes to my future forgetful self, and mild, medium, and spicy check-your-understanding questions (CYUs) for every thin sliced sequences of curricular tasks
  • Imparts reflections from the authors on each task

The book closes with specific guidance on how to use your curriculum to craft your own tasks along with answers to educators’ frequently asked questions. It is followed by an appendix containing a catalogue of resources and a task template for creating your own tasks.
