Higher-Order Thinking • Reading • Writing in Mathematics
Teaches standards-based math as it develops students' reading and thinking skills!
Math Detective® uses topics and skills drawn from national math standards to prepare your students for advanced math courses and assessments that measure reasoning, reading comprehension, and writing in math.
Students read a short story that includes a chart, table, or graph. Next they answer critical thinking questions to improve their understanding of the math concept and develop their critical thinking (comprehension) skills. Students can’t just scan the story for answers—they must carefully analyze and synthesize the information from the text and the chart, table, or graph to explain and support their answers.
Stories are age-relevant, high-interest, and show students that math is integral to everyday activities.
- 40 activities; 259 questions (in paid version)
