Task Library

A school without tasks is like a school without books.
  • Students investigate books to explore literature and develop language concepts and skills in context.
  • Students investigate tasks to explore mathematics and develop mathematical concepts and skills in context.
  • Teachers select one book as a whole class literature adventure to challenge and extend students.
  • Teachers select one task as a whole class mathematical adventure to model working like a mathematician.
This page shows what a collection of all 241 tasks could look like.
