Pivotal Items for High School Mathematics
Pivotal questions serve a vital and critical role in unveiling student understanding and misconceptions in mathematics in ways that knowledge-recall questions do not allow

Teaching Mathematics for Understanding in Grades K-6
Funded through the Virginia Department of Education, the following modules were developed to enhance teachers’ content and pedagogical content knowledge of the mathematics embedded in the Number/Number Sense and Computation/Estimation strands of Virginia’s 2009 K-6 Mathematics Standards of Learning (SOL).
