Teamwork Makes CC Students Math Champions – Elizabeth Coombs

Teamwork Makes CC Students Math Champions – Elizabeth Coombs

Why would fourth- and fifth-graders get together during recess or after school to work math problems? Why would they give up soccer matches, baseball games, play rehearsals, or just some downtime on a Saturday morning to try to solve a bunch of word problems faster than kids the next city over?
