# Advanced Common Core Math Explorations (Gr. 5-8)

Challenging and engaging activities designed to deepen a student's understanding of math concepts through investigations. In fact, the book opens with Welcome, math explorers! The activities require creative thinking and insight to answer a question and solve the problems. They lend themselves to partner or group work with lively discussions. Each activity includes 3 stages: stage 1 will be challenging enough for many students, while stages 2 and 3 are for older or highly motivated students. You are encouraged to take your time with each activity and may not even finish some of them! The idea is to take risks, be creative & flexible, and see what comes of it. Teacher guidance is very clear to follow. Each workbook's 10 exploration is several pages. This series almost has a debate or logic vibe to it in the systematic approach to problem solving. Includes CCS alignments. Reproducible for a single classroom or family. 159 pp, sc. ~ Sara
