5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and seamless Jan. 8 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I use the ideas and actual questions seamlessly in my everyday teaching. The open ended questions allow students to come at them from different perspectives, and the students build off of each other in a very cooperative way. Even more questions would be great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Questions for Teachers! Aug. 3 2005
By SLP - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a speech-language pathologist in an elementary school, I am very interested in materials that encourage good math communication, logical reasoning and use of math language. This book is different from most other problem-solving books in that it concisely provides questions on 16 diffferent math topics for grades K-2, 3-4 and 5-6 - all of which lend themselves well to creative math discussions. Our district math committee chose to have a copy of this book in each elementary school. After looking through it, I was convinced that I needed a copy of my own to quickly refer to when seeing my students. This was $10.85 that was well-spent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Higher-level thinking in math class Feb. 8 2009
By Maggie Dillier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The difference between "What is 731 minus 256?" and "Arrange the digits so that the difference is between 100 and 200" is massive. If you want to teach toward the end of the student-centered, higher-level thinking scale, use this book. Only 100 pages long, it is 100% practical - each math topic broken down by grade level, with sample questions. I plan to use these prompts as bellringers at the start of each math class. Fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Oct. 11 2007
By waterbabeeee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I agree! This book is fantastic. I typed the questions into a document and rephrased some and left blanks for monetary amounts. This way I could make easy homework activities and modify the questions as needed. The questions are perfect: open ended, based on real world situations, and easy to understand. I also like how the book is organized by mathematical content areas and suggested grade levels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Questions for Math Teaching Nov. 30 2007
By J. Foster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Just what I needed... a concise explanation of the hows and whys of open ended questioning and ways to create "good questions". The grade level appropraite examples of good questions in the areas of numbers, measurement, space, chance and data, are easy to use and have been a valuable tool for stretching my students as math thinkers. This wonderful resource includes "coaching" that has stretched me as teacher. Thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Dec 28 2009
By vanilla beaniyeh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wanted to enrich my math teaching skills over the holiday break: an area where I feel I need work. This book has given me ideas that I look forward to using. They will definitely add interest to my math lessons! If you and your colleagues all contribute a buck or two, you can share this resource and discuss how it worked with your students. Strategies are separated by topic/grade and given that, it's a short enough read so that it can be passed around by five people within a couple of weeks.
