Welcome to Fostering Mathematical Thinking in the Middle Grades, another in the Casio series of books designed to promote meaningful discourse and deeper understanding of ideas in the mathematics classroom. Though the investigations in this volume are designed for the middle grades mathematics classroom, the sample solutions are written for the middle grades mathematics teacher, not the student. In addition to sample solutions, discussion of areas of frequent difficulty, connections to other ideas, and suggestions for approaches to classroom discourse are also included. The investigations will challenge thinking about what mathematics is and what our responsibilities to our students truly are.

Most of the "big ideas" contained in the Common Core Math Standards for grades 6-8 are addressed in these investigations. However, in addition, teachers will likely wish to create their own mini-investigations, both to promote facility with the calculator and to help students learn to think and explore for themselves, albeit on a smaller scale.

The investigations are based on the Common Core mathematical standards. The focus is on expanding students' understanding of the number system, ratios and proportional relationships, expressions and equations, and statistics and probability. Though the PRIZM has outstanding geometric capabilities, geometry is not targeted in this volume. See EAI # 503882 for the Geometrical Thinking resource volume.
