Testimonials

I was amazed to see the differentiation and the student examples. So many times we see the problems, but not actual student work. Thank you so much for allowing me to see student work and the DIFFERENT ideas so that it's not me creating "mini mes" but showing students how to arrive at the answer in many different ways!

My teachers and I enjoy using Exemplars ... We have found the math resource to be a great addition to our current curriculum.
