This brand-new section of our website is devoted to lesson plans developed by master teachers for use in the middle school classroom. Like Math Teachers’ Circle sessions, these lesson plans focus on problem solving. However, unlike the material in a Math Teachers’ Circle meeting, these lessons are classroom ready and some even include information about what NCTM standards they touch on to help make it easier to fit them into your curriculum.
If you use any of these lessons in your classroom, please let us know what you think! Also, if you are interested in contributing a lesson plan of your own, please contact us.
