Dr. Janet Tassell was the lead editor while Drs. Maxwell and Stobaugh were assistant editors of six elementary math books that provide math problems for all common core standards. There is one book per grade level for grades 1-6. Each book includes three CReaTE authentic tasks. The following in the description of the CReaTE section:
Authentic Challenge Projects: This section is a novel segment of the book where we have included authentic opportunities for the student to connect with the mathematics standards in an integrated way with other disciplines and technology. Our hope is that the student will see mathematics come alive through the authentic setting and be inspired to tackle the challenge as many of the projects are related to students’ interests.
