Investigations, Tasks, and Rubrics to Teach and Assess Math, Grades 1–6

This dynamic resource gives teachers a wide variety of engaging open‐ended problem solving tasks and investigations spanning grade levels 1 through 6. Having access to this grade span provides opportunities for differentiated problem solving experiences as well as giving teachers a menu of rich mathematical experiences for all students. More than 200 tasks are grouped by content strands that reflect the NCTM Standards as well as the NCTM Curriculum Focal Points. The 60 investigations address more than one content strand and are true problem solving applications of mathematical skills, procedures, and reasoning. The tasks can generally be completed within a short period of time, while the investigations are designed to be developed over a longer time period. The nine assessment rubrics, including authentic student work samples, are insightfully designed based on the authors' research of student responses.
