Good Questions for Math Teaching
  • What is a good question?
  • How do I create a good question?
  • How might I use a good question in my mathematics classroom?
Not only does this powerful resource answer these questions, it also provides more than 300 examples of open-ended tasks, in question format, to support you in creating dynamic learning environments and helping students make sense of math. Designed as a supplement to your mathematics curriculum, the tasks can be seamlessly embedded within lessons and units of study, used for warm-up routines and review, and incorporated into assessments. The second edition of this popular resource includes all-time favorite questions as well as new ones!

Questions cover financial literacy; counting and place value; decimals; operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division); fractions (fraction models, comparing fractions, adding and subtracting fractions); geometry (two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes); data analysis and probability, and measurement (weight, volume, area, time, length and perimeter).
