The Mathematical Association of America (MAA) has created the Curriculum Inspirations collection to help "demonstrate practical ways to engage students in the lively exploration of mathematics and mathematical thinking." Here, educators will find essays of varying lengths and crafted by the well-known mathematics education expert, James Tanton. The "Ten Problem Solving Strategy Essays" are all gems and range from "Draw a Picture" to "Solve a Smaller Version of the Same Problem." Also, each essay provides useful links to supplemental teaching resources, such as short classroom activities. The site is rounded out with information about high school content standards and a short bio on Mr. Tanton himself. Interested visitors should make sure to register for free email updates when new material is added to the site.
