Stenmark, Jean Kerr, Ed.
EQUALS is a teacher advisory program that helps elementary and secondary educators acquire methods and materials to attract minority and female students to mathematics. The program supports a problem-solving approach to mathematics, including having students working in groups, using active assessment methods, and incorporating a broad mathematics curriculum presented to students in a variety of contexts. This book contains problems aimed at enlarging students' resource bank of problem-solving strategies appropriate for grades 4 through 9. Also included are preliminary considerations, questions and suggestions, a problem list by mathematical topics, and a cross-reference chart of the problems. (JRH)
