Get ready to unleash student math success with this collection of hundreds of open questions from Marian Small. An essential tool for every K–9 math classroom, the Open Questions for Rich Math Lessons: Number Strand books are organized around outcomes from the WNCP Common Curriculum Framework for K–9 Mathematics. These teacher resource books use a highly visual format to present easy-to-use questions with sample responses for all parts of problem-solving lessons. These resources can be used on their own or as a supplement to a core program such as MathUP.

These books will:

  • Prompt discussion of mathematical concepts and lead to deeper understanding

  • Show connections among the specific outcomes in the WNCP curriculum

  • Offer models to help teachers develop their own open questions

  • Add to the teacher’s repertoire of engaging tasks for students

  • Provide opportunities for thoughtful practice of concepts and skills
