In the new math books Beyond the Bubble: How to Use Multiple-Choice Tests to Improve Math Instruction Grades 2-3 and Grades 4-5, authors Maryann Wickett and Eunice Hendrix-Martin show teachers that multiple-choice tests can be used to better understand students’ true mathematical knowledge and comprehension.
Each book is divided into five strands — number, measurement, algebra, geometry, and probability — with six problems per strand. Each problem includes an overview of the objective of the test question, a sample question typical of those found on standardized tests, strategies students employ to solve the problem, conversation starters, student work, and instructional strategies to advance students learning.
You can now buy both books in a package and save $6 off the regular price. Head over to the Stenhouse site to preview sample problems from each book.
