> Rich Learning Tasks in Number
Packed with more than 50 rich learning tasks, this classroom resource will become a favourite. Students explore number through finding patterns, playing games, using manipulatives, estimating and making predictions; but most importantly they are encouraged to explain their thinking and communicate it to others in a variety of ways. Each task begins with an uncluttered, stimulating student page with clear instructions. A paired teacher page gives notes, a performance rubric of four levels and a sample student response. Suggestions for motivating students and for implementing and assessing are frequently provided. Skillfully constructed, the tasks are suited to a multitude of levels, and can be readily adapted for further extension. Accompanied by a CD-ROM with PDFs of student worksheets.
