MORE Good Questions: A Year of Open Ended Math Problems for Grades 2-4 is exactly that — a series of 200 tasks to inspire thinking, connection-making and reasoning for today’s diverse math classrooms. Scaffolded problems and open-ended tasks across the strands invite students to think deeply and to communicate what they know about important math ideas.
In this second volume of problems for primary and early intermediate classrooms, students will engage with tasks involving the operations, logical reasoning and measurement designed to promote mathematical capacity. Problems are structured in sets of 5, clustered by topic, strategy or big math idea. Each task is slightly more complex than the last to allow for conceptual development over the course of a week. Problem sets can also be used as an intact set of 5, allowing students to choose the problem that is just right for them.
Intended to be used daily, these problems are designed to promote mathematical curiosity and connection-making. The richness comes from the shared discussion and comparison of strategies. The more we share our thinking the smarter we all become!
