An Observation: Children are not born "knowing" mathematics, but regardless of gender or ethnicity they can learn math. Mastery of concepts and skills depends on two critical factors: effective instruction on the parts of teachers and effective study habits on the parts of students.

Math Starters! 5- to 10-Minute Activities Aligned with the Common Core Math Standards, Second Edition

Math Starters! 5- to 10-Minute Activities Aligned with the Common Core Math Standards, Second Edition, for grades 6-12, follows the same general structure as the first edition. The material is thoroughly updated. Many problems have been revised, some have been retired, and new problems have been added. Many of the 662 problems are aligned with the Common Core Math Standards. Every standard for grades 6-12 is supported by at least one problem, and many standards are supported by two or more. Many of the other problems address prerequisite skills related to specific standards. Each problem aligned with the standards is identified in the contents and in the text, and a Standards and Problems Chart at the beginning of the book makes selecting problems for your students easy.
