Math Routines to Support Mathematical Reasoning

Which One Doesn't Belong

A website dedicated to providing thought-provoking puzzles for math teachers and students alike. There are no answers provided as there are many different, correct ways of choosing which one doesn't belong. Enjoy! 

Math For Love

We are Dan Finkel and Katherine Cook, a husband and wife team devoted to transforming how math is taught and learned.

We develop math games and curriculum, including tons of free lesson plans that we give away here. We train teachers and produce professional learning materials. And we write puzzles, produce math-art shows, and do whatever we can to show people how playful, beautiful, and life-changing mathematics can be.

Fraction Talks

"Fraction Talks are a built around classroom talk and student action. These two principles guide the teacher’s questions, disposition, and facilitation of the activity. They can be become a daily routine, or used for entire lessons."

Estimation 180

Math Lessons that Build Number Sense

Estimation tasks that make mathematical reasoning accessible to students and enjoyable.

Visual Patterns 

Clothes Line Math 

Clotheslines become interactive number lines. Students are able to manipulate cards to show proportional reasoning, precision, equality between numbers, and magnitude. The clothesline builds students’ number sense. It’s a routine that can work from kindergarten through high school.

Math Blogs 


Currently a doctoral candidate in mathematics education at Stanford University, Dan Meyer is interested in making perplexity accessible to students. He has developed a bank of what he calls "three-act" problems to have kids doing some actual problem solving. His video, Math Class Needs a Makeover, is a good place to begin if you're new to Dan's work.

Overthinking My Teaching 

Christopher Danielson teaches future elementary school teachers mathematics at Normandale Community College in Bloomington, Minnesota. He is particularly interested in children's mathematical development. You should also check out his new blog, Talking Math With Your Kids, where he chronicles conversations with his own children, Tabitha and Griffin.
