Math specialists assemble…we’ve got problems.

Today I am giving a presentation on problems at the Mathematics Specialists Conference at the Center for Mathematics and Science Education.  The more I am exposed to the Common Core State Standards for School Mathematics the more I am convinced that the key to meeting the standards is to use problems, actual problems.  Too often there is confusion about what a problem is and how to use good problems effectively.  This presentation was meant to clear up some of the confusion…hopefully.  Below is a link to my handouts, a link to my presentation, and how to cite this material.
