Problem Solving Experiences: Making Sense of Mathematics
This unique program teaches students how to solve problems using math skills and content they have already mastered. This program is flexible enough that it can be used to supplement a math program or textbook, used as a summer school or enrichment program, or as a stand-alone program.
Instructional support is built into student pages, offering much more than practice solving problems. Support is greatest at the beginning of the book and it decreases as students progress, leading them to become more independent problem solvers. Small-group work is recommended for some types of problems to promote effective problem-solving behaviors such as justifying and evaluating ideas.
