Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Judith, a teacher:

Where would I find comprehensive questions, that cover the majority of skills in a unit such as number sense, to use as "Questions of the Month"?

Dear Judith,

Math Central is in Canada and I am much more familiar with the resources available here than in the US.

One place is from sample provincial exam question, if they are available. I'm not sure of the exact level needed. Maybe try the BC Ministry of Education Website (I live in BC, so I am a little bit familiar with what happens here), and similarly the Ministry websites of other provinces.

Another place might be in (books of) sample contest problems for math contests like Euclid, Gauss, Fermat, or Math Counts.

Other organizations like the NCTM in the US might also have resources available.

Hope this helps.
