|An eight-month slate of open-ended problems for middle school students to solve in preparation for standardized testing. The authors have composed and selected problems that lend themselves to multiple solution paths, and then organized them into three levels of difficulty and the five strands from the Philadelphia math standards: number theory; measurement; geometry; patterns, algebra, and functions; data, statistics, and probability. Possible answers and rubrics for assessment available.|
