Good Questions for Math Teaching: Why Ask Them and What to Ask, High School
  • What is a good question?
  • How do I create a good question?
  • How might I use a good question in my mathematics classroom?
Not only does this powerful resource answer these questions, it also provides more than 375 examples of open-ended tasks, in question format, to support you in creating dynamic learning environments and helping students make sense of math. Designed as a supplement to your mathematics curriculum, the tasks can be seamlessly embedded within lessons and units of study, used for warm-up routines and review, and incorporated into assessments.

Questions cover number and quantity (exponents, irrational numbers, square and cube roots, imaginary numbers, infinity and limits); symbolic algebra (solving equations, equivalence, systems, rewriting expressions, solving inequalities); functions (linear, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic, rational, polynomial, trigonometric, inverse); geometry (measurement, congruence and similarity, transformations, polygons, right triangles and trigonometry); statistics and probability (interpreting categorical and quantitative data, making inferences and justifying conclusions, conditional probability and the rules of probability, using probability to make decisions); and PreCalc (limits and continuity, area under the curve, slope of tangent, derivatives, and fundamental theorem of calculus).
