Math has become more complicated, for both the teacher and the student. This series of books is here to help. Problem solving is an issue for many, both young and old. How to read a problem? What information am I looking for? What process am I supposed to use? 180 Days of Problem Solving offers daily practice and tips on how to think through a problem, solve the problem, then explain the process. The lesson pages are divided into weeks, then five days of the week: students do one page per day. There is instruction in the front of the book for using the material and how it aligns to standards.
