Uncovering Student Thinking About Mathematics in the Common Core, Grades 3-5: 25 Formative Assessment Probes

Full Description: 

This book offers 25 research-based assessment probes designed specifically for Grades 3-5 and aligned to the Common Core Standards for Mathematics. The probes support teachers in asking the right questions to uncover where their students get confused and applying practical strategies to get students back on track quickly. Each probe helps teachers: quickly and objectively identify and correct students’ difficulties; systematically address conceptual misunderstandings and procedural mistakes--before they become long-term problems; plan targeted instruction and remediation in multiplication and division, problem solving, the four operations, factorization, and beyond; master the essential CCSM mathematical processes and proficiencies for Grades 3-5.
