Pinner said: it wouldn't let me pin the main page, but this website is a collection of math questions called Stella's Stumpers. The questions (over are sorted by math class, and they look to be a great resource for bellwork. Pre-Alg through Alg II

Grades: “A collection of more than 600 nonroutine mathematics problems. Problems range from simple visual problems, requiring no specific mathematical background, to problems that use the content of pre-algebra up through pre-calculus.

Pinner said: asking the kids to solve a problem in two different ways. REALLY hard for them at first, but it creating math *thinkers* instead of just *doers* in my room! (more info on post)

you love math! MVP's in Math focus on the Most Valuable Practices- mathematical practices in the Common Core! 18 cubes included to prompt students to discuss and record thinking when problem solving!

This is similar to what I do in the classroom. It hangs up and students can answer it throughout the day. Spend 3 minutes to go over the problem and how to solve it. Giving treats to the students who get it correct.

Assessment tools to support schools in implementing the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) in middle high schools. Be sure to check out the Tasks as well as the lessons. You can also search by CCSS or Math Practice.

CEMC - Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing - huge collection of various maths problems with hints, extension activities and solutions - mostly pdf format
