Take your fifth grade students on a problem solving adventure with the 180 Days of Problem Solving e-Book. This classroom resource boosts confidence as students approach multi-step, higher level word problems. With changes in math standards, teachers need an easy-to-use tool to help them quickly implement daily practice that goes beyond routine word problems. This powerful tool provides teachers with daily activities to strengthen the critical thinking skills fifth grade students need to advance to the next level. Each thematic unit focuses in on a standards-based concept, and throughout the week students gain a deeper understanding as they explore visual representations, analyze different approaches, discover diverse ways to handle complex, non-routine problems, and see how these skills apply in real-life situations. Aligned with national standards, 180 Days of Problem Solving readies students for college and career readiness.

Once upon a time in 1977...Rachelle Cracchiolo started Teacher Created Materials with a friend and fellow teacher. Both were eager to share their ideas and passion for education with other classroom leaders. What began as a hobby, selling lesson plans to local stores, became a part-time job after a full day of teaching, and eventually blossomed into a nonstop opportunity to develop and grow Teacher Created Materials as a full-service company, and a welcome and familiar name in every classroom. The story continued in 2004 with the launch of Shell Education and the introduction of professional resources and classroom application books designed to support Teacher Created Materials curriculum resources. Today, Teacher Created Materials is one of the most recognized names in educational publishing around the world...and the story continues educationally ever after.
