The new Contexts for Learning Mathematics series by Catherine Fosnot and colleagues uses carefully crafted math situations to foster a deep conceptual understanding of essential mathematical ideas, strategies, and models. Building on the ideals of a math workshop, each unit provides a twoweek sequence of investigations, minilessons, games, and other contexts for learning. The series’ 18 classroomtested units are organized into three ageappropriate packages.
