Mathematics Assessment Project
The Number System
Count this assessment in the "use" pile. Middle schoolers solve a set of five problems in the seventh and eighth grade number system domains. All problems are in pure mathematics with no applications.
The Map of Mathematics
How does all this math fit together? The resource creates a graphical view of the extent of mathematics. The map shows the pure and applied sides of studying mathematics and breaks them down into their many disciplines.
Apply the Pythagorean Theorem in three-dimensional shapes. Young mathematicians watch a video that takes them through several examples of using the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems involving lengths in three-dimensional figures. A...
