One thing that I know to be true is that sometimes we need to hear/see/read things more than once before they really sink in. This week’s “Texts on Tuesdays” is a throwback to a post from LAST summer…with a few changes. If you aren’t familiar with CGI math, I can’t suggest enough that you dig in and learn as much as you can. Whether you teach primary or intermediate students, understanding how students learn to problem solve is so important.

**What is CGI Math?**

### How is this problem-solving method different?

Ok…I know this was wordy and I STILL didn’t convey the essence of CGI math…if you are intrigued, I am including links to a few articles that you may find interesting! I seriously wish I could convey it better…but if you are intrigued, I hope you might find some of these resources interesting. Check out an Interesting Article about how CGI is making a difference in an at-risk school

CGI article explaining more about what it really is!

There is also an excellent book that you might find useful if you want to understand the math in-depth and get much more information about implementation. I’ve included the link below. Please note that it is an affiliate link for Amazon.

### Perfect for intervention

Blank pages to glue problems to use as assessments…the rest of the problems got glued into math journals |

Students pick the numbers that are the right size for them… |

Full-sized problems to use as teaching tools |

Love watching how students solve the problems…and then use as a part of our mathematical discourse |

**multiplication and division.**I hope you find these useful for either large group instruction, small group intervention, or even one-on-one coaching.
