Contexts for Learning Mathematics

Math fact drills and endless word problem worksheets are ineffective and meaningless to students. Contexts for Learning Mathematics provides carefully crafted units designed to foster deep understanding in a math workshop environment. By setting each unit in the context of students' lives, teaching and learning immediately becomes engaging and meaningful in your classroom.

Each unit provides a two-week sequence of investigations, minilessons, games, and other contexts for learning. The series’ 18 classroom-tested units are organized into three content-based packages or grade-specific teacher packs.
