HELP YOUR STUDENTS LEARN MATHEMATICS THROUGH PROBLEM SOLVING

ALL the addition and subtraction word problems to build mathematical understanding, relational thinking, and spark your students curiosity!

WHAT IF YOU HAD A RESOURCE THAT eXPOSED YOUR STUDENTS tO TRUE MATHEMATICAL SENSE MAKING?

Choosing the right problem solving tasks doesn't have to be a struggle. In fact, solving word problems is a life skill that is enjoyable to teach, and VERY fun for your students.

What you need is a set of "worthwhile problems." A resource that gives your students the chance to solidify and extend what they know, while stimulating their mathematics learning. You also need to provide them with tools that are intriguing, contain a level of mathematical challenge, and invites relational thinking as well as hard work.   

AFTER MANY YEARS OF RESEARCH, TEACHING EXPERIENCE, AND OBSERVATIONS OF MY OWN STUDENTS... I HAVE FOUND A CLEAR SOLUTION!
