ASSISTments is excited to announce that we have partnered with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) to offer you NCTM’s “Figure This!” problems in ASSISTments.
What is Figure This!
Figure This! problem sets were originally designed to help families enjoy mathematics outside of school. These problems emphasize the importance of high-quality math education for all students and can be used in whatever way makes sense to you - Use to drive your math club, supplement your daily curricula aligned work, assign at home for students to complete with their families.
NCTM advocates for high-quality mathematics teaching and learning for each and every student. Our partnership allows ASSISTments teachers to take advantage of the high quality problems they have developed.
