Welcome to Teaching Is Problem Solving – a new site dedicated to sharing ideas about teaching with a focus on mathematics. 

You may find videos about children’s early understanding of number in the Concepts Videos section. You may find stories about teachers learning and discussing student thinking as well as engaging in formative assessment and lesson study in the What’s Next? Stories section. Examples of student thinking abound in both sections. 

The site will be growing quickly over the 2017 year. If you want to know when new material arrives, be sure to sign up to receive notifications of new content and resources.
