dc.description.abstract The following project includes a description of what problem solving is, how it is used in the mathematics classroom, and a collection of problem-solving tasks. Each problem is located in a section titled using one of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) content standards: Number and Operations, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement, and Data Analysis and Probability. The major emphasis of the problems included here is on their ability to meet various Indiana state standards while still meeting specific requirements I set forth in building the collection, such as their real-world application, the amount of reading required, and the level of mathematics involved. The collection is intended to be a resource for teachers and student teachers to pull problems from and use in the classroom setting to promote problem solving.
