## Construct It! The Great Mini-Golf Project

### Sandra Vorensky

## Teaching Is a Journey: Evolving Mathematician

### Taajah Felder Witherspoon

Math mentors, challenging math problems, and empowered students are crucial for math growth in both students and educators.

## GPS: Good Measures

### Daniel K. Siebert and Monica G. McLeod

Growing Problem Solvers provides four original, related, classroom-ready mathematical tasks, one for each grade band. Together, these tasks illustrate the trajectory of learners’ growth as problem solvers across their years of school mathematics.

## Two Technology Frameworks: Their Use in Lesson Design

### Elizabeth B. Harkey, Angela T. Barlow, and Victoria Groves-Scott

The authors used two technology frameworks to design three seventh-grade mathematics lessons, focusing on opportunities to address collaboration, authenticity, or personalization.

## Young Mathematicians Take Action Through Sport Clinics

### Jennifer Suh, Gretchen Maxwell, Kate Roscioli, Holly Tate, Padmanabhan Seshaiyer, and Risto Marttinen

A community-based mathematical modeling task focuses on exploring issues of inequities and lack of access to youth sports.

## Construct It! What’s in a Name? Collecting, Organizing, and Representing Data

### Eva Thanheiser, Courtney Koestler, Amanda T. Sugimoto, and Mathew D. Felton-Koestler

Build a classroom community by building representations and visualizations of data related to students’ names.

## Model It! Building and Sustaining Cultural Traditions with Ethnomodeling

### Siddhi Desai and Farshid Safi

This geometric transformation-focused ethnomodeling respects individual and collective community experiences and moves toward educational experiences that acknowledge and celebrate the multidimensional aspects related to identity.

## Developing Meaning for Mathematical Expressions

### John K. Lannin, Christopher Austin, and David C. Geary

Explore two ways that algebra students interpret mathematical expressions. Learn instructional tasks to help students develop meaning.

## Using Mathematics to Design a Droid

### George J. Roy, Matthew Cunningham, and Kenneth Rafanan

Teachers have the opportunity to make mathematics relevant. We leveraged the popularity of *Star Wars* to engage students in exploring and connecting two dimensions and three dimensions to careers in toy design.

## GPS: Growing Statistical Literacy

### Natasha E. Gerstenschlager and Katherine Ariemma Marin

Growing Problem Solvers provides four original, related, classroom-ready mathematical tasks, one for each grade band. Together, these tasks illustrate the trajectory of learners’ growth as problem solvers across their years of school mathematics.
