Math Challenge of the Week for sixth grade math students. Click on the picture to be linked to all of my Challenge of the Week problems in my blog. This one focused on finding the percent of a number. My 6th grade students really enjoy trying these every week! I post the problem on Monday morning and students have until the end of the day Thursday to solve them. We go over them on Friday!
Newell's Nook features this colorful poster with the acronym MATH: Mistakes Allow Thinking to Happen.

It's a reminder that all mathematical thinking is valuable and can help us learn!
This blog post is a must read for all teachers!!!
